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 â€śspecial.â€ť
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.
