Clyde Haag

Clyde Haag, 88, died at home on January 1, 2018. Born in Des Moines, Iowa January 24, 1929 to Carl L. DeLong Haag and Pauline Kerr Haag. Services will be held on Thursday, January 4, 10:30 am at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 4114 Allison Ave. Des Moines, Iowa. The family will greet and share memories with friends and family from 9:30-10:30 am.
Clyde attended the former West High School, Grandview College and Drake University. He was a proud veteran of the United States Air Force serving during the Korean War. Clyde’s love of airplanes and flying began at a young age when he obtained his pilot’s license; yet barely old enough to drive a car. His love of flying led him to work at Mid Continent Airlines and later Braniff Airways where he met his wife, Vivian Louise Wilson. They were married on Valentine’s Day, 1956.
For 32 years, Clyde proudly worked as an Air Traf¬fic Controller for the Olathe Federal Aviation Ad¬ministration Center in Kansas and the Des Moines Tower. In 1989, after his long career, Clyde retired with accolades for his safety and service record. During retirement, he returned to golfing with friends and puttering around his house and yard. His love of flying led him to using his computer flight simulators to challenge himself learning to fly aircraft he had never flown before. Up until his death, Clyde bragged that he was learning to fly Huey helicopters. He was an active member of Windsor and Westminster Presbyterian Churches.
Clyde was preceded in death by his parents; brothers Richard (Winifred) Haag, and Jerry (Ruth) Haag. Surviving Clyde are his wife of 61 years, Vi¬vian Louise Wilson Haag, sister Phyllis (Frank) Watson, daughter Melinda S. Haag (Jane E. Barker), son James J. Haag (Lori Haag), and grandchildren Amanda M. Haag, Jordon J. Haag and Anne W. Barker, as well as cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Clyde’s memory to West¬minster Presbyterian Church or Windsor Presbyterian Church.
