    Sorry to hear of Clyde’s passing. I will always remember his stories, him singing along to his CD’s and having a laugh with him. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him. Condolences to Max and the rest of his family and friends.

    So sad to get the call about Clyde’s passing. Loved every day I spent with Clyde..We laughed alot together . Lots of good memories with Clyde. Setting at the table listening to the music he loved and all the stories he told about him and Max growing up. He was like a father figure to me, had a smile to greet me every morning. Gone but never forgotten. Love to all the family at this sad time.

    So sorry to hear of Clyde’s passing. Last time I saw Clyde in Stag Harbour was around 1963 or 1964 around the Time His Dad passed away. I moved to Labrador City in 1970 where I worked until 2002. Then in 2018 I got to visit Him & Max at Their home in Clarenville . I really enjoyed that visit & wished there was more time for more Visits. R.I.P. Clyde until We Meet Again, George & Ruth Coish
