I was privileged to be his pastor and proud to call him my friend. Clyde Jennings was a true war hero and the perfect example of good old American ingenuity. He quietly walked with his God and loved his family and had an undying loyalty to his friends. He was in every sense of the phrase "a good man." Rest well old friend, rest well.
