Former Local 302 Business Manager Clyde Wilson passes April 9

We are saddened to inform the members of Local 302 of the passing of Clyde Wilson yesterday, April 9th.

Clyde Wilson followed his father Jack’s footsteps and began his career as a permit hand in 1960 while a student at Everett Junior College.  Jack Wilson joined Local 302 in 1947 in Anchorage and had served as Local 302 president. 

Clyde began his career at Manson as a permit hand.  He recalled trying to run a Link Belt crane while the regular operator took a coffee break until “I felt this big Swede hand on my shoulder” and being told “the day I know you can take care of this crane is the day I’ll show you how to run it.”  Becoming an “A” member in 1962, he worked sixteen years for Manson and General in marine construction and another eight years for crane rental contractors.   

In 1985, Clyde became dispatcher where he served three years.  In 1988,  Clyde was elected president and served until 1995 when Larry Johnson retired.  He was then elected business manager, serving in that position until 2001 when he retired. 

Clyde was respected by all for his strong work ethic and his pride in all things Local 302.  We will truly miss you, Brother Wilson. Our most sincere thanks to all you have done for Local 302.  Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

We will update you with funeral details and any other information we receive from the family.
