Beth, the loss of a parent is always a devastating loss especially when the child and parent were extremely close as you and Clyde were. May you find comfort and healing in the memories you have of your dad. Tina

Clyde is now in Heaven watching over us all; we know he's in a much better place. I'm sure he's watching the Cubs in the World Series and hopefully will give them an extra push for a big Win!! He will always be in our hearts and he is with all of our other loved ones up in Heaven. Clyde, we love and miss you forever. Give Pinchy a hug for us.

This is my Grandfather, the Man that raised me, the Man I have called "Daddy" my entire life. He taught me how to play softball & helped coach the team. We would run around our yard at night grabbing earthworms so He could take me fishing the next morning. He will forever be in my heart.

My condolences to Clyde's Family. I had the pleasure of working with Clyde for several years at DuPont's East Chicago plant. He was a great coworker. Many times he treated us to his "Hungarian pancakes" for lunch breaks. I last saw Clyde while I was on the Hammond Fire Department. He came into my office and we had a very good visit. I can still remember him sitting at my desk, and both of us sharing some good laughs.Clyde's Family is in my thoughts and prayers at this sad time.
