Clyde Richard Thompson, 81, of McGregor, died Sunday, March 8, 2020, at Gundersen Lutheran Hospital in La Crosse, Wis. Clyde was born June 13, 1938, in Clayton County, to Dale and Dorothy (Fritz) Thompson. During his younger years, Clyde attended Giard Methodist Church, where he was baptized and confirmed. Clyde first attended Klema Country School, and then later attended and graduated from MFL High School in 1955. He proudly joined and served in the United States Army from Jan. 3, 1957 until Dec. 31, 1962.

Clyde was united in marriage with Sandra LaPointe on April 8, 1965, at the Little Brown Church in Nashua. After serving in the military, he came home and worked on the family farm until his passing. Clyde was very active and dedicated to his faith, church, family and friends. He stayed busy doing jobs around the farm when he wasn’t attending activities and events of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Traveling with his wife, Sandy, and flying his airplane were things Clyde enjoyed.
