    I had the pleasure of working with Clyde at the Heritage Company. He would stop by once in awhile with Bill. He loved to ride. Clyde was one of a kind. Riding on streets of Gold now. You will be missed by many.

    We raised some kind of “heck” in our younger years. We were friends, roommates, and brothers. Sorry we lost touch later in life. Rest well my brother.
