Hard work pays off for centenarian

March 2, 2011

LITCHFIELD - He is 102-years-old, still lives in his own home on the farm, and eats lunch at the cafe in Litchfield nearly every day. It is a feat not many have accomplished, but Clyde McFadden thinks of himself as anything but “special.”
Clyde was born Jan. 6, 1909, on a farm south of Loup City, where he grew up. He graduated from Loup City High School in 1927.
He recalls the summer after his high school graduation when he and a buddy took off and traveled around the state picking corn. He says they finished up just in time to come home for Christmas, and made 4.5 cents a bushel.

A man dedicated to music, he has shared his love and commitment with many people in the community.
