Clyde Elton Sloan, Jr. passed away peacefully at home on August 27, 2022 and went to be with the Lord. Clyde was born on November 4, 1943 in Houston, Texas, but lived most of his youth in Baytown, TX. After graduating from Robert E. Lee High School (class of 1962), he went on to study business at the University of Texas and then transferred to the University of Houston where he graduated in 1968. Clyde met his wife Lee Etta at the University Religion Center and they married in 1968. After graduation, he went to work for Allstate and had a successful 32-year career as an agent until he retired in 2000 and sold his agency to his son.
Clyde was predeceased by his parents, Clyde and Catherine Sloan and is survived by his wife of 53 years, Lee Etta; brother William Sloan; son Warren Sloan and fiancé Micah Stewart; daughter Martha Sloan Salas and son-in-law Ruben Salas; and six grandchildren, Christian, Samuel and Abigail Salas and Alexander, Megan and James Sloan.
Clyde loved his family, church and community. He served as a Scout Master, coach, mentor, precinct judge and was an active church member. Clyde served on his high school reunion committee, the UH Bauer College of Business Alumni Association and the board of the Cougar Cookers HLSR cook-off team. Clyde never missed a UH football game or his grandchildren’s activities and he always lent a helping hand to friends and neighbors.
Clyde’s family would like to thank the doctors and care teams at MD Anderson, Houston Cardiac Clinic and Houston Hospice for their excellent care. A service will be held for Clyde on Saturday September 3rd at 10:30 AM at Holy Spirit Episcopal Church, 12535 Perthshire, Houston, TX 77024. A more complete obituary can be found at
