  • William Clyde Melendy Jr. was a 50 year, Life Member of Gateway Lodge No. 175 A.F. & A.M., Warrenton, Oregon. He was recommended by WB Ronald C. Collman and Bro Darrell H. Wadsworth. His Investigation committee was WB Adolph J. Reirson, Bro. Vernon R. Hart, and WB William H Larson. He received his EA degree on 19 SEP 1968, F.C. on 21 NOV 1968 and his MM degree on 13 FEB 1969.. I remember being under a steeltop desk at the Clatsop County Airport with Harvey Chan, a weatherman who worked with Clyde during the Columbus Day Storm, 10/13/1962. I was a Senior at Warrenton High School, and worked at Maizes Market in Warrenton. See
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columbus_Day_Storm_of_1962. for complete information of this unforgettable Storm. I learned a lot about the weather from Harvey and Clyde.
