Clyde had many different jobs throughout his life some very interesting.

Clyde loved his family more than anything, Clyde’s favorite pass times were fishing especially with his grandson Andrew, driving around and listening to music with his granddaughter Jenna Rose, and playing pool. He always looked forward to family reunions in Denville New Jersey and going out to eat with his best friend Paul Melo. Clyde dedicated his time to the Knights of Columbus and the Legion of Mary. He had a passion for animals especially horses and dogs. Our late dogs Abby, Rosie, and Katie knew him as the treat man. Clyde was a giving man that made friends wherever he went.
