Clyde W. Dailey, 57, died Feb. 22, 2016, under a FULL MOON in Helena.

Clyde was born on Aug. 1, 1958, in Billings, to Leonard L. Sr., DDS, and Ileta Stovall Dailey. He enjoyed playing football for and graduated from Billings Senior High. He continued his education by earning a bachelor’s degree from the University of Montana — GO GRIZ. In the early part of his career, he worked with Northern Plains Resource Council and later at the Montana State Auditor’s Office. He then worked a number of years with AARP as a state director for Idaho, then became associate regional director in Chicago. He loved living his last several years in Helena.

Clyde was a gifted and caring man and enjoyed people, always having time to talk with anybody he met. He particularly enjoyed politics and was involved with several campaigns. Clyde loved to travel here and abroad, and was an accomplished whitewater rafter. He had a special connection with the family cabin — the Pinochle Inn on the Boulder River in McCloud — spending as much time there as possible, including Thanksgiving and almost always on his birthday. Family had a special place in his heart, as he was especially close to his nieces and nephews.

Survivors include his stepmother, Willeen Foos Dailey; brothers John (Judy), Tom, Leonard, Jr. (Kathy); sisters Rita Campbell, Twilla Meacham (Steve); stepsister Lori Doran; and numerous beloved nieces, nephews, cousins and many cherished friends.

  1. Leonard and Kathy, so sorry to hear of Clyde’s passing. I recall a few fun stories involving Clyde, as he was younger. I also recall following his sports career at Senior. Mom passed along the sad news today through our daughter. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. May you be blessed by all the wonderful memories.

  2. I am so very sorry for your loss! I remember him with warm thoughts. Had a blast helping him work on a mustang in Missoula. I know how special he is to your family and I pray that you find comfort knowing he is at peace and at home. Hug your girls for me. Love you all. Wendy, Scott and family.

  3. Condolences to the Dailey family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, “heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds.” May God bring you comfort and peace.
