In Memory

Clark Hyde

Clark Hyde went on from Oberlin to Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA, to earn an MDiv. He became an Episcopal priest, serving first in Toledo, OH, then in Napoleon, OH, and then in Delaware, OH. At the time of his death, he was studying for a DMin so that he could become a seminary professor. He was a superb priest. People were drawn to him because of his gregariousness and his brilliant sermons. He was also a wonderful husband and an involved, loving father. He is deeply missed.

Survived By: His wife, Janet Shibley Hyde, and 2 children, Margaret and Luke

Clark was my roomate freshman year.  He was kind, considerate and outgoing.  He loved sharing good things and good news, so he must have been a wonderful priest.  I have many memories of Clark, but two have stuck in my mind most.  One happened the very first week we met.  Clark knew I liked classical music, but found himself unable to believe that it didn't really extend to opera.  So he sat me down, played a whole side of Othello, and explained why it was the greatest thing ever.  I didn't figure it out at the time, but he was right, of course, and it's a pleasure to be able to thank him every time I hear that incredible work.    Another memory was sophomore year, when we got together, and he told me, kind of breathlessly, that he had just met a girl (Jan, of course). 

Clark also sent me the first Christmas/New Year's letter I ever received, way way before the New Year's note became a thing.
