His love of family, fishing, trivia knowledge, and loyalty to all the New England sports teams was balanced by a life of hard work and service. Born and raised in East Brookfield he was a proud Prouty Panther baseball and soccer player graduating from David Prouty High School in 1971. After serving honorably in the US Air Force’s Military Police corps he graduated with a business degree from Fischer Junior College. He used his gifts of physical strength and personal tenacity working for the Boston-Albany railroad company and subsequently for many years as a Local 243 Union laborer. When not working as a foreman for the union at many construction sites throughout central Massachusetts Clyde enjoyed winning sport fishing pins from his favorite fishing spots and watching his beloved Red Sox and Patriots.
Clyde’s love for his family and friends and his devotion to his many nephews and nieces will be forever remembered by all who love him and will miss his infectious smile and laughter. He is now fishing, playing Pitch with, and probably giving a hard time to his father Dennis (Denny) and his brother Edward (Eddy) Dumas who predeceased him. He is survived by his mother and stepfather Kitty (Holmes) Ostrout and husband Reynold; his sisters Penny Peluso and husband John of Ohio, Sharon Bolduc and husband Matthew of Whitinsville and Fay Worthington of Spencer; his brother Dana Dumas from Spencer; David Larkham of West Brookfield who was like a brother to him; many nieces & nephews, great nieces & nephews and many step brothers and sisters.
