Final rites for Clyde L. Limbocker [March 3, 1951], 724 Taylor Street were held in the chapel of the Oregon City Funeral Home, Wednesday afternoon. Concluding services were at Mountain View Cemetery. Rev. Howard Hutchinson, pastor of the Church of Christ (Christian), officiated. Pall bearers were Earl Downing, Clifford Chapin, Ray Corless, Bryan Foster, Frank Parker and Richard Bittner.

Mr. and Mrs. E. Granville Limbocker of Richmond, Calif., were in Oregon City for the funeral. Enroute from the south, their train was stalled by a snow slide at the summit of the Siskiyou Mountains for 16 hours. The accident occurred at the edge of the tunnel. Trains were delayed and three came through Oregon City just a short distance apart. Mr. Limbocker, a nephew of Clyde Limbocker has been an engineer for the Santa Fe railroad for more than 25 years. They were only able to stay in Oregon City one day.

Mrs. B. L. Templeton, Beaverton; Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Johnson, Gresham; Mrs. Estelle Holmes and Mrs. Clarence Oak both of Portland, were among the out-of-town relatives and friends attending the rites.
