Clifford A. Doebel
11/27/1937 - 02/04/2013

Clifford A. Doebel, 75, noted entrepreneur of Clyde, died Monday, February 4, 2013 at Stein Hospice in Sandusky.

Cliff was born in Fremont to the late Wilbur A. and Marie K. (Leonard) Doebel. He was a lifelong resident of Clyde, but more than that, he was a lifelong promoter of Clyde. He graduated from Clyde High School in 1955 and went on to study engineering at The Ohio State University, graduating in 1962. He came home to become the third generation owner of the family business which was started in 1916 by his grandfather.

More than a flower shop, Doebel’s became a center for enterprise in Clyde. Cliff started a Fine Arts Competition at Doebel’s in 1980, a pottery line run by Doug McCauley in 1986, the Haunted Greenhouse in 1988, McPherson Days in 1997, Flea Markets and Art Shows throughout the years, Winesburg Weekend, including the Winesburg Run, and was usually involved in some way with the Clyde Country Fair.

Cliff served on Clyde City Council, and was a charter member of the Clyde Business and Professional Association. He was a member of ClydeScope, but went beyond the parameters of normal membership. In the drought of 1988, Cliff brought Leonard Crow Dog to Clyde for a rain dance. This event brought thousands of people into Clyde. He also wrote a book in 1999 called “The Gift of Giving” which highlighted his gratification for giving – both to his patrons and to his community. One of Cliff’s favorite quotes was Sir Winston Churchill, “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.”

Cliff encouraged people to come to the greenhouses and “see what’s growing on”. His enthusiasm for his community was best summarized in his quote, “We [Doebel’s Flowers] are proud to be a part of the City of Clyde.”

Sharing that pride are Cliff’s survivors: his wife, Cheryl (Kuns) Doebel, whom he married September 16, 1962; his children: Erica (Jason) Holcomb and Eric Doebel; and his grandchildren: Jessica Marie Holcomb, Jasmine Danielle Holcomb, and Ethan Clifford Doebel. His sister, Katherine L. (Steve) Turner, survives in Poughkeepsie, New York.

In addition to his parents, Cliff was preceded in death by his brother, Arthur Doebel.

Visitation will be 2:00-5:00pm on Sunday, February 10, 2013 at the Mitchell-Auxter Funeral Home, 218 South Main Street, Clyde.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00pm Sunday, March 17, 2013 at the Doebel\'s Greenhouse in Clyde.

Please show your community support by giving to one of these charities: Community for the Arts in Clyde; Clyde Library; ClydeScope; or Stein Hospice.

My condolences to Cliff's family. I shopped many times at Doebel's in Clyde over the years and had the pleasure of meeting Cliff in the spring of 2011 when I was there shopping at the greenhouse and he was out working getting some plants potted up to sell. Cliff was a very dedicated person and helped make Doebel's Greenhouse what it is today. Cliff will always be remembered by everyone in the Clyde community and all the customers that visited the greenhouse.

Cheryl, My deepest sympathy to you and the family on reading of Cliff's passing. We moved full time to Bonita Springs, FL last year and I thought about calling Cliff to talk about native FL plants.

My deepest sympathy to Cheryl and family. I spent many hours as a young person with Uncle Wilbur, Aunt Marie, and Cliff as we lived just down the street from them. One of my fondest memories is Cliff trying to get us to walk on stilts! He was a great "big cousin" and will be missed.

With sadness I learned of Clifford's passing today. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I remember fondly how good Clifford was to our family. I still have the glass redbird he sent to my mother, Eunice Doebel. That was just so thoughtful. That is the word that comes to my mind when I think of Clifford, thoughtful. If all of us gave like he did the world would be a better place. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. With much sympathy, Connie Doebel Hanson (Sitges, Spain)

My sincerest sympathy to the entire family. I did not know Carlene, but she raised an amazing daughter in Cindy, so I'm sure she was a special lady.

Ruth Strong on February 9th, 2013 - 10:10 pm said:
I just learned of the loss of your Mother. Carlene was a Thompson classmate and friend. Unfortunately, we lost contact after graduation, and I was never able to locate her. I appreciated her friendship and that of her parents during our school days. She's thought about each time I look through my photo albums and see myself at age 7 in a little blue suit that she passed on to me. It made Easter special that year. She was always so kind to me. She won't be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
