At the outbreak of World War I in 1914, they were in Europe, with 5 solid years of vaudeville bookings before them. When they came back to the United States, they stayed in show business for about 4 years.

In 1918, Clyde went into the jewelry business with Will Homuth on the south side of the Courthouse square. In 1922, he bought the jewelry department in the Newmarket, which he owned for 17 years. He then opened his own store on North Center Street. Five years later, he sold to Sigmund Sorg, Inc.

He was the former president of the Community Players which he helped to organize and for a number of years was a makeup man in the Passion Play productions.

Surviving him was his wife, at the family home, 507 S. Moore St., and a sister, Mrs. Hattie Masters, of Yonkers, NY. He was preceded in death by 7 brothers and 3 sisters. He attended the First Church of Christ.
