Clyde Bobbitt

November 23, 1949

Clyde Dale Bobbitt, son of Louis M. and Bessie (Waterman-Merritt) Bobbitt, was born on October 6, 1928 at Haddam, Kansas. He passed from this life Thursday, January 14, 2010 at Belleville, Kansas at the age of 81 years. Clyde was raised in Haddam and graduated from Haddam High in 1946. He attended one year at Emporia State Teachers College and then returned home to work with his father at the Mobil Service Station "Bobbitt's Oil Co." in Haddam. He purchased the station when his father died and opened another station in Washington, Kansas. Bobbitt Oil Co. had been in operation for over 60 years when Clyde sold the company in the mid 70s. Clyde met and married Margye Mae Fiser on November 23, 1949 and to this union a daughter, Jody, was born. They celebrated their 60th anniversary this past November. Clyde joined the United States Army and served during the Korean War. For a year and a half, Clyde and Margye was stationed in Anchorage, Alaska. The rest of their years have been spent in Haddam, most on the farm west of Haddam. Clyde farmed and raised cattle into the 80s. He became a crop insurance adjuster and later a supervisor. He really loved this occupation because it kept him in touch with farming. Clyde retired a few years ago due to his failing health. Clyde was very involved in community and county activities, including the Haddam Housing, Dance Platform, Kevin Zenger Memorial Park, Washington County Airport and Economics Board, and was very active in the American Legion. He took great pride in the cemetery Avenue of Flags. Clyde was also very active with sports, especially locally. He coached the Haddam girl's softball teams for many years. Clyde was preceded in death by his parents and brothers and sisters-in-law, David and Doris Bobbitt, and Jack and Arlene Bobbitt. He will be forever remembered by his wife Margye and daughter Jody of Haddam; granddaughter Julie (Charles) Johnson and great granddaughters Sierra and Maci of Boulder, CO; his niece who was raised as a sister Judith Bobbitt of Aurora, CO; cousins Gertrude Ketterer, Lincoln, NE and Raymond Leske, Spokane, WA; brother-in-law Bobby L. Fiser, Vienna, VA; sisters-in-law Eunice (Bob) Clark, Holton, KS and Ardyce (Pete) Karabatsos, Perry Park, CO; nieces, nephews; other relatives and friends. Funeral services were held Monday, January 18, 2010 at the United Methodist Church in Haddam, Kansas with Pastor Randy Jellison-Knock officiating. Family inurnment will be at a later date.
