Obituary provided by Allan Mackenzie of the Airdrie, Scotland Library!
THE LATE MR. JOSEPH CLYDE...As announced in our Wednesday's issue, Mr. Joseph Clyde died on Sunday evening last at his residence, Hollybank, Clark Street. As our readers are aware, Mr. Clyde has had a long and severe illness since his retirement from public service some four years ago, and the end was not unexpected. In the closing weeks of his illness he was greatly cheered and sustained by the visit of his son, the Rev. J.B. Clyde, M.A., B.D., Ph.D., of Kansas, USA, but it was evident that he was sinking, and he at length passed peacefully to rest about 11 p.m. on Sunday. Mr. Clyde was a native of Airdrie, as were his parents, handloom weavers, before him. He, too, began life in the weaving industry, and was latterly in business in the clothing trade in Coatdyke, High Street and East High Street. He was one of the first elected representatives to his newly-constituted Parish Council of New Monkland, and gave upwards of 35 years faithful service in that body as a representative of the Second Ward. During the latter years of his service he was appointed first Vice-Chairman, then Chairman of the Poor-house Committee, and besides taking a great interest in the welfare of the poor folks, of Thrashbush Home, he also visited the boarded-out poor, in other parts of the country. Four years ago, owing to the state of his health, he retired from the Parish Council.
Mr. Clyde was a member of several fraternal bodies in the town. He had deep religious convictions, and was for many years associated the High United Free Church, of which he was a respected office-bearer to the last.
Mr. Clyde was of an exceedingly genial and courteous disposition, with a pawky humour, that made him many friends in the community by whom his passing, in his 75th year is much regretted.
Mr. Clyde was predeceased by his wife eleven years ago. they had a family of five sons and four daughters. As indicated above one of his sons, the Rev. Dr. John B. Clyde, with his wife (nee Miss Margaret Knox of Airdrie) and their little boy, came over from America some weeks ago to see his father in his last illness, and during his stay has preached in various local Churches. With his wife and family Dr. Clyde started on his return journey to Kansas yesterday. Another son is Captain David Clyde, M.B., Ch. B., D.P.H., who is in the Indian Army Medical Service and presently at Lucknow; while other two sons, Mr. Joseph and Mr. Tom Clyde are in Kansas, USA.
The funeral of the late Mr. Clyde took place to Clarkston Churchyard on Wednesday, and, while private, was of a representative character. A somewhat unique feature in the cortege as it passed up Clark Street was the presence, walking next to the hearse, of two grandsons of the deceased Councillor--one the son of the Rev. Dr. and Mrs. J.B. Clyde (John Douglas Clyde) and the son of Mr. Tom Clyde of Kansas (Walter Alexander Russell Clyde).
Among the floral tributes were two beautiful wreaths from the High U.F. Kirk Session and Deacons Court and the L.O.L. No. 125 respectfully; while sympathetic tribute to the late Mr. Clyde was made at the Parish Council on Thursday.
