Clyde was such a sweet person. It broke my heart to hear that he had passed away. He always seemed so strong. I just thought he'd be around for many more years. He was a major dog lover and we had that in common! He was always smiling and welcoming! He had us over many times for cook outs. He'd man the grill and Judy would fix her famous tomato and onion side dish that was way delicious. I am going to miss seeing these two good people! I know he was lost without his Judy. He loved that woman!! So, it does make it a little easier knowing they are together again on this Valentine's Day. Two sweet hearts that couldn't bare being apart. May they rest now together as one. To all his family and friends my deepest condolences.

Clyde is my cousin on my Dad’s side and I loved him and Judy so much. They lived up on the hill from us when we were kids growing up in the little town of Interlachen, Florida. William was just a little boy at that time. They were my “cool” cousins because they were 10 years older, could drive and had great cars. We would listen to records in their home and hang out with them when Mom would let us. After they moved away to Indiana we lost touch for a while, but I later reconnected with them when they came to visit me in Ormond Beach and then later on I went to visit them several times during Derby Days. We had so much fun just visiting family and friends and spending time together - which normally included time on a gambling boat. . A few years later William and Jean came to visit us in Ormond Beach while they were on vacation and we spent some fun times together. No matter how long it had been between visits, Judy and Clyde would make you feel like you just saw them the day before. It is the same with Will and Jean. We love this family and are heartbroken over the loss of Clyde. The family has gone through so much since they lost Judy this past Summer. Our thoughts and prayers are being sent to the entire family, especially William. We love you all. Love, Patti and Warren Hersch
