  4. Clyde was known and loved by many in this community. Our love and prayers are with his family at this most difficult time.

  5. So very sad to hear of Clyde passing ! I have known him almost my entire life! From pumping air in my bicycle tires as a child, to working on my car as an adult! Hanging out at the garage, to hanging out at his house! Watched with envy as a child, him playing basketball! Clyde was a good man! Misunderstood his sarcasm and his humor at times, only to see that big grin, and know he was just having fun! Although I moved from Danville almost 30 years ago, I always tried to drop by and see him and the gang, when I visited! I\’ve missed those times for 30 years, and now I will miss him even more! May God Bless the family, and like me look forward to reuniting with him in the future! Prayers to all!
