Clyde Morris Holdcroft, a longtime resident of Floresville, Texas, passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2010, at 12:30 a.m. in San Antonio at the age of 69 years, 5 months, and 29 days.

Clyde was born on May 26, 1941, in O’Brien County, Iowa. He was the son of Ralph John and Wahnetta Montangue Holdcroft.

At the early age of 14, Clyde started to call bids under the supervision of his dad, Ralph. In March of 1957, at the age of 15, he attended the Worldwide College of Auctioneering in Mason City, Iowa. At the time, he was one of the youngest students ever to graduate. He moved to Wilson County around 1959. By the early 1960s, he realized auctioneering was his calling. He first started selling livestock for the Floresville Livestock Commission. He continued to pursue his career for many sale barns throughout South Central Texas. Clyde enjoyed ranching, and was an avid card player. Clyde was of the Lutheran faith.

Clyde was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph and Wahnetta Holdcroft; his infant daughter, Clydene Annette Holdcroft; his brother, Raymond Holdcroft; and his sister, Ellen Miranda Ward.

Clyde is survived by his beloved children, Stacy Rash and husband Leonard, Tracy Davis and husband Chris, Bradley Holdcroft and wife Stephanie, and Raymond Holdcroft; his longtime companion, Sandra Talley; his grandchildren, Rylan, Hannah, Westin, Zachary, Preston, Bryana Zoe, Brodie Clyde, Wyatt, Dylan, Lyndsay, Myles, Benjamin, and Avery; his brother, Roy Holdcroft; and his sisters, Mary Hotcaveg and husband Howard, Janice Upton, Lois Sims and husband Terry, Helen Savage, and Kathy Griego and husband Alex.

Visitation was held on Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 3 p.m. in the Vinyard Funeral Home Chapel in Floresville. A funeral service was held on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. in the funeral home chapel with Pastor Scotty Smith of Cowboy Ministries in Jourdanton officiating.

Interment followed in the Floresville City Cemetery.
