Clyde and I were close neighbors for many years. He was a wonderful friend that made significant contributions to our entire area. He was a joy to know and to be around. He was generous and shared his many talents with all he knew. The entire neighborhood truly missed Clyde when he moved away.
For his entire family we extend our condolences for losing this great man. We pray the Good Lord of all gives strength to bear this loss and to try to remember the many years the Good Lord shared Clyde with those he left behind.
