Clyde was born May 2, 1955, the only son and youngest child of Edward and Susan (Fischer) Heinle. He and his three sisters grew up and attended school in Hebron, ND. He enjoyed baseball and played on intermural leagues. After graduating from Hebron in 1973, he attended college at Dickinson State University where he was a part of the baseball team as a walk-on catcher. During the summer, he worked at the Hebron brickyard. Clyde graduated from DSU in 1977 and started his 43-year teaching career in Flasher as a math instructor.

Clyde was known as a human calculator, a proud Flasher Bulldog supporter with hundreds of students and athletes he was proud of.  Some of his proudest moments as a coach were with the 2001 regional and 2005 state boy’s basketball teams and the many great athletes that he coached on both girls and boy’s teams.

A hardcore Yankee baseball fan since the age of 5, he followed the team through the glory years and the bad teams too.

In the fall of 1996, Miss Gayla Lang moved to Flasher to teach FACS at the school. After 6 weeks of dating, they were engaged and were married on August 15, 1997 in Bismarck. Two years later, Cadee Micayla was born. In 2002, Darbee LaMae joined the family. He was their biggest fans, constantly talking about “his girls” even when they tell him not to. He shared his stories with everyone and was a natural story teller. Having your dad as a teacher and coach made life very interesting because everyone knew who you were and who they belonged too. While he only had two biological children, he had hundreds of children he cared about, and tried to impress on them discipline, effort, and common sense. Clyde was tough on students but also joked with them in a manner where they knew he cared about them.

Since Gayla did National trips with her FCCLA students almost every summer; Clyde would help chaperone the larger groups and these turned into a family trip with many exciting moments like earthquakes, floods, hot sand, and sunburns. Holidays were always celebrated with Clyde after writing the Christmas letters or making Christmas goodies.

Clyde is survived by his wife, Gayla, his daughters, Cadee Heinle (fiancée Trevor Goetzfridt), New Salem, and Darbee Heinle, Flasher. He is also survived by his sister, Linda Preisinger, brother-in-law Kenny Wetzel, several nieces, nephews, and cousins. 

If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations in his name may be made to the family or to the Clyde Heinle Scholarship Fund.
