  • Clyde was a wonderful neighbor down here in FL. We befriended him and Betty during 2004-2005. He was honest, caring, and very helpful. When Betty passed it was a great loss for us. Then he moved back to Delaware, and that was a personal loss for our neighborhood. He is and will be missed along with Arnie. May his & Betty’s memory be eternal. Our deepest condolences to his family. Of special significance was his sense of humor. None other like it. Rest in peace Clyde.

  • You are all in our thoughts & prayers. Clyde will be greatly missed by all his Florida neighbors, but we are thankful for many great memories!
