Clyde Elmer Anschuetz, of East Tawas, passed away peacefully at Tawas Village Assisted Living on Sunday, July 7, 2019, age 90 years. Clyde was born on November 25, 1928 in Plainfield Township, Michigan to Arnold and Augusta (Schaaf) Anschuetz. He proudly served our country in the United States Army from 1951 until his honorable discharge in 1956. Just before Clyde enlisted in the Army, he married his wife and best friend, Gayle (Lake) Anschuetz on August 27, 1950. After Clyde's time in the military, he moved back to Tawas and went to work for Anderson Coach. After several years, he went to work for William Look & Sons in East Tawas as a car salesman. Later on, Clyde had an opportunity to relocate his employment to Alpena, and go to work with his family at Anschuetz Chevrolet where he served as the Used Car Manager. He decided to retire after more than 20 years and step away from the everyday full time work force and enjoy his well-deserved retirement years. Clyde truly loved the outdoors while enjoying hunting and fishing! He was a devout Christian man, and was an active member of Emanuel Lutheran Church in Tawas City. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. Clyde is survived by his grandchildren, Steve (Monica) Anschuetz, Andy (Alicia) Anschuetz, Danny Simenson, Jared Simenson, and Chad (Amanda) Anschuetz Allen; great grandchildren, Levi, Henry, Greta, Rylan, Myla, Chase, and Mason; 1 brother, Mike Anschuetz; 1 sister, Carol (Jim) Brooks; sister in law, Marlene Anschuetz; son in law, Tim Simenson; several nieces, nephews, cousins, and special friends.
