Clyde was my car distribution manager during my 10 years in the Chicago Buick zone. I will always remember his direct guidance in all the car distribution areas.
I will always consider him a great friend and true Buick person.
Jimmie and I wish Clyde a well earned rest and our prayers to his family.
