    The world has become much less interesting and much less fun with the passing of Clyde! I knew Clyde through my good friend, Henry Hamilton, and had the opportunity to be a guest at Clyde’s home on a couple of occasions – he was the most wonderful host – disco ball and all in the garage. I will miss Clyde.

    A week ago he was holding court from his bedroom, joking with us about his adventures traveling the world with Chuck and his many friends. It’s hard to accept that he’s gone from our lives but his memory will stay with all of his many good friends for a lifetime.
    Godspeed, my old friend…I know there is one heck of a party going on in the hereafter and you are right in the center of the action. I’ll miss your energy and wit and our terrifying rides down Paper Mill Road in Mary Todd Lincoln. Party on, my friend!

    Clyde was such a fine Southern Gentleman. I enjoyed talking with him about all his years in the business of decorating in Atlanta. I met him thru my work in Estate Liquidation . He will be missed. I will alway remember how as he grew older he kept going no matter his health. One of his great stories of his Army days was being assigned to decorate the rooms on base for General Dwight Eisenhower. Rest In Peace Clyde. Thank you for your service!
