Clyde is one of the memories I will always have in my heart and mind, forever. I will never forget the time I spent with him at WPAFB. There were never any bad times with Clyde, he made everyone around him laugh no matter what state of mind you were in. Barb and I spent many memorable hours with him and Margaret and their family and will cherish each and every thought. I don't want to say good-bye to Clyde, but instead I'll say see you later brother.

Dear Margaret and all your family,
It saddened me so to hear about Clyde's passing. He always had a happy presence at the pain center - joking and laughing and making us all laugh. We will miss him very much. I will always remember his wonderful spirit and how proud he was to have served his country.
Margaret, you are in my thoughts and prayers. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

I spent a few years working and traveling as a member of Clyde's Air Force acquisition teams. During the 80s and 90s, we traveled as a group to several locations around the country and we shared many enjoyable meals together. He clearly loved his family, enjoyed his work and looked after his friends. He will be sadly missed.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I have many wonderful memories of him when we worked together at RJO and was happy that we still stayed in touch with Christmas cards and TOMA info. He was a real character and charmer. I'll miss him.

Margaret, I am very sorry for the loss of Clyde. John Volpe called me this morning to let me know. I don't know if you remember me; I was Claude Bolton's secretary at the time when you worked with Joghn. My husband and I drove past Tobias yesterday afternoon and I remarked how sad there was a memorial service on Easter Sunday; having no idea it was your husband's. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Sincerely, Claudia Johnston (Beavercreek OH)
