|To the Children of Clyde, Your dad was a great guy. We were in explorer scouts together over 60 years ago. I remember very well a 34 mile hike we were on and my tail was dragging. Clyde saw that I was running out of gas so he gave me a candy bar and lifted my pack for a few minutes. That simple act lifted my spirits and my energy level. I was able to finish the hike thanks to him. I also worked with him at Armco / AK where he had a very good reputation. It was my pleasure to know him. He will be missed. Fred Rentschker|
