Clyde Ernest Chalfant



September 15, 1937 - January 21, 2023

Buddy, as he was known to family and friends was born in Payette, Idaho.
He was a hunter and avid fisherman. Buddy served in the Navy for 4 years and was stationed in Hawaii. He enjoyed pitching on his softball team and loved bowling.
Buddy participated in both his son’s sporting activities. His rolls included Baseball Coach, Equipment Manager for Pop Warner football and helping out the Redwood City Flyers Track Team. But his favorite part was cheering on his boys! He worked as a truck driver in his early years. In his later years he worked for Sunset Magazine, Abbott Labs and Hospira in the Shipping and Receiving Department.  Buddy retired at the age of 70. He spent his retirement days fishing off his boat & working in his garden. It was not uncommon to see him pulling in garbage cans for his neighbors, mowing their lawns and sitting on his porch chatting with those who walked by with their dogs. He was loved by many, especially his wife of 55 years Connie, sons Rob and Chris, daughter in laws Tara & Gina. He was “Grandpa” to Jake, Hailey, Jamie & Nicole and
“Grand Dad” to great grandchildren Beau and Poppy.

May he rest in the arms of the LORD, forever!

3. I heard a shout from the throne, saying, “ Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. 4. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”
Revelation 21:3-4
