Clyde Dastrup Chidester History

Info: obituary notice, Deseret News, Salt Lake
City, Ut; Mrs. Lora C. Liner, Long Beach, Ca

Born in Richfield, Utah, Clyde moved to Bicknell, Wayne, Uts., at the age of five. As a teenager he played
in the family band. He graduated from the Wayne High School in Bicknell and then attended the Branch Agri-
cultural College in Cedar City, where he was prominent as an athlete.

For a period of four years he was associated with Earl COOK in the ice cream business. He then became a
uranium miner and was working at a mine in the remote Hansen Creek area of the Henry Mountains when he was
injured by a huge rock that had been dislodged by a dynamite blast. The rock rolled to the mine entrance,
crushing Mr. Chidester. He was taken by helicopter to Hanksville, then flown to the hospital in Grand Junc-
tion, where he died. He was interred in Bicknell, Ut.
