From The Oklahoman: 

A member of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City clergy community has died of COVID-19.

Clyde Grover, a deacon at St. Andrew Catholic Church in Moore and a longtime member of Bishop McGuinness High School, died Wednesday. He was 62.

Diane Clay, the archdiocese’s communications director, said two members of Grover’s household had tested positive for the virus for about a week when he became ill and went to the hospital. She said he was in the hospital for six days before succumbing to the virus.

Grover was a native of New York. He studied counseling at Boston University and pastoral ministry at Newman University in Wichita, Kansas. He retired from the U.S. Air Force.

The Rev. Jack Feehily, pastor of St. Andrew, said Grover and his family had been members of the church since 1993 and he and his wife had the distinction of being the parents of an Oklahoma City archdiocese priest, the Rev. Danny Grover, pastor of Corpus Christi Catholic Church. Clyde Grover had served as a deacon of the church since 2013 and Feehily said he and his son were deacons at the same time for awhile — the older man an ordained permanent deacon and the younger man a transitional deacon on his way to becoming an ordained priest.

“So that was a unique thing — that doesn’t happen very often,” Feehily said.
