Clyde and Jeanne were wonderful mentors to me when I was a student at Otterbein College from 1958-62. They played a major role in guiding me to a very successful career as a professor in biochemistry at the University of California. We have kept in touch over the past 50 years and I cherish these many years of friendship and support. They have left a wonderful legacy for many former students.

Clyde and Jeanne were a remarkable couple and it was a privilege to know them. Jeanne was first my professor, and then my mentor as I taught at Otterbein. To know Jeanne was also to know Clyde, a wonderfully kind and generous person. We had memorable visits in their beautiful log home. They gave so much to all of us, and we will miss them.

I will forever remember your kind words and loving smile.

Forever in our thoughts you and Jean will always be part of the the Bush's family. Truely missed by us all at Bush's Restaurant.

Clyde and Jeanne were wonderful friends of my mother and stepfather Kay and Jim Stahl; and they were always so welcoming when my husband and I and my brother David Harrison happened to be along for the visit to Logan as well. Clyde and Jeanne leave a legacy of historic preservation; and Clyde's membership and contributions on the behalf of the Columbus Wheaton Club will always be remembered.

Clyde was such a happy person who treated everyone with respect. I will miss his early morning Kroger visits. He was a great Buckeye fan and we had many conversations of their ups and downs. He will be missed.
