Clyde was born on March 12, 1932, in Bryan to Lonnie Perry and Mary Dickson Fuqua. Clyde was a veteran in the U.S. Army. He retired as a central office foreman from GTE in 1993, after more than 43 years of service, where he was a mentor to all who worked with him.

Clyde was a strong Christian man who served God in all aspects of his life. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather who loved his family dearly. He enjoyed camping and traveling in his motor home and any activities spent with family and friends. He was a true leader to his family and to all who knew him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Lonnie and Mary Fuqua; brothers, Milton and Ralph Fuqua; and sister, Doris Murphy.

Survivors include his wife of more than 56 years, Dorothy Helmer Fuqua; son and daughter-in-law, Douglas and Teresa Fuqua of Bryan; daughter and son-in-law, Carol and Noel Newland of Bryan; grandchildren, Keith Newland and wife, Barbara, Craig Newland and wife, Susan, and Clinton Fuqua, all of Bryan; a great-granddaughter, Kelsey Newland of Bryan; a brother, Bobby Fuqua of Jacksonville, Texas; three sisters, Joyce Keown of Claredon, Texas, Shirley Coakley and Margaret Miner, both of Bryan; and numerous nephews and nieces.
