“They haven’t changed it much”he said. He also recalled spending their extra time hunting, fishing and riding through the mountains. These were his father’s favorite activities. Clyde is remembered as being good to the kids and easy to get along with. This GSP enjoyed everything about the job, including the uniform with the exception of the hat.
“He hated his hat”Richard said as he laughed. Richard continued that his favorite memory that he has of his father was the big Christmas’ they had when he was a child. “There were always lots of toys for the kids” he said.
“If you do not remember your past, you cannot find your future”he said. After that, he asked that Richard Wehunt to come to the front of the venue. McDonough presented Wehunt with a memorial replica of his father’s badge, along with the same type of patch that his father wore on his sleeve. A teary eyed Wehunt expressed his gratitude but that would only be one of the memorials he was to receive on this day.
