Woodrow Wilson Clyburn was born in a log cabin in a field just up the Klamath River from Beaver Creek in the town site of Gottville, California on 25 Aug 1916. He passed away on 12 September 1995 in Rogue Valley Medical Center in Medford, Oregon. Oregon Death Certificate Number 140834. He had suffered with cancer for seven years. Now he was at rest. He lived a full and interesting life.

During world War II he volunteered for the Navy SeaBees. In most branches of the military a man enlisted and was taught a skill that the military needed. In the case of the SeaBees, they were enlisted because they already had a skill and experience!

While he was in the Navy Seabees he was at Guadalcanal and several other Pacific Islands in the war. He developed malaria while on Guadalcanal and was hospitalized in New Zealand for quite a few months. He came home on leave still sick with the malaria and Dr. Newton, a Yreka doctor, told him to get back to the Navy Hospital as quick as possible! He was skin and bones. He always was tough and he survived!

Survivors include a son, Franklin Clyburn of Klamath River, a daughter, Linda Hansen of Alaska, a sister Faye McBain of Yreka, a brother, Joe Clyburn of Yreka, and three grandchildren, and three great grandchildren.

Funeral services are set at Girdner Funeral Chapel in Yreka. Rev David Samuelson of the Yreka United Methodist Church will officiate. Interment will follow in the Evergreen Cemetery with military honors.
