Clyde White was a good and decent man who also happened to be the fairest person I have ever known . Clyde mentored me in the insurance business 40 years ago and shared his wisdom with me throughout his life. He became a close friend whom I respected greatly and in the past couple decades I always looked forward to celebrating his birthdays with him in addition to having lunch with him. I miss Clyde greatly and his family can be assured that Clyde left this world a better place and is now reunited with Marilyn in Heaven.

I met Clyde through Brent and Lisa when I sold his home. He was so witty with a great sense of humor and sharp as a tac. He negotiated every detail and considered every angle. It was obvious to me that he loved and missed his wife and I am sure they are reunited. He spoke of all his children and grandchildren. So many happy family memories in that home. So many sweet new memories...I loved the Easter Pictures with Livy. What a wonderful example of husband and father. Brent is a wonderful son, as I am sure all of you are tributes to your amazing parents. It was my pleasure to know him and I know Clyde will be missed and his legacy lives on. Our love and sympathy to your family along with our prayers. Also Clyde, put in a good word for the Gariepys because I know you are in Heaven. Virginia & Bob Gariepy

Uncle Clyde and Aunt Marilyn let us and our very young first-born son live with them for a month in 1978. They were SO hospitable and kind to us, naive as we were, while we sought to settle into our first house, new job, new city, etc.
We loved staying with them and often think fondly upon that month remembering such a dear family! Florrie and Alan were still living at home too. We will miss you, Uncle Clyde.
