    We all miss you terribly, Clyde. You will always stand as a Prince of a man. Your music and laughter will sing in our ears forever. Your contributions to children and adults though education are a lasting legacy. Your voice and concerts fill the ethos for eternity. Your marriage and expressions of love to Brenda set a high bar for everyone of us. You will be in our hearts forever. God bless you. Love you.

    Your friend,

    Love to Brenda.

  • Mary Anne Espinosa says:

    One of my favorite teachers at H.W. Harkness elementary school. If I remember correctly, he taught the first 5th/6th class split. Sorry I didn’t get to hear his musical abilities. Prayers to the Kidd family for your loss.

  • Robert Salley says:

    Bob and Virginia Salley college friends, Pasadena College class of 1957. We honor your contributions to public education. We remember you fondly.

  • Claudia Chadbourne says:

    My heart-felt condolences and prayers to Brenda and family. Love, like the ocean continues beyond the horizon. Clyde and my husband, Merle, were great friends and they probably have met up are reminiscing, sharing jokes and laughing… those wonderful sounds.

  • Kathleen (formerly Chang) says:

    Sympathies to the Kidd family. Mr. Kidd was the principal at H.W. Harkness elementary when I was in 5th or 6th grade (can’t remember which). Though he served for a short time before I graduated from Harkness, I remember him as a kind man. The years pass so quickly (and now here we are; senior citizens in our own right).

  • Kathie Peron says:

    I remember meeting you at my grandparents home when you first moved to Sacramento. Also knew you at First Church of the Nazarene. Heard you sing often there. Then when you became Principal of Theodore Judah Interdisciplinary Arts Magnate School, I got hired to start a Suzuki Violin Program for K-3 grades with the next grade being added each additional year. That program is what really started me in my career, for which I’ll always be grateful. Clyde was always very happy, helpful and caring and I was shocked to hear about his passing. My thoughts are with his wife and family. RIP Clyde❣️❣️🎶🎻🎶❣️

  • Ples Fisher II says:

    My prayers and condolences to the family. Mr. Kidd was my childhood principal at Bret Harte elementary school. He was a very nice man that I remember well.

  • JoAnn T Chance says:

    My thoughts and prayers to you, Brenda and family. Clyde was a special person. Worked with you both for many years.

  • Sharon M (Wright) Christman says:

    Mr. Kidd was my 6th grade teacher at John Bidwell ES. He would play tennis with my father on Saturday’s and I babysat the boys from time to time. He gave me a love for music when I sang in the choir he directed in 5th and 6th grade. He was a favorite teacher of mine and a great person outside of school too.

  • Meg Burnett says:

    It was wonderful sharing music and time with you and Clyde in River City Chorale, Brenda. Clyde was always a true gentleman, as well as a fine musician. I am sorry for your loss of his gentle brilliant presence in your and your family’s lives; may his spirit shine brightly for all of you.

  • Michele says:

    My condolences to the family. Mr Kidd was my principal at Brett Harte Elementary in the ’70s and I remember him fondly. Reading the tribute to him in the newspaper clip my mother sent me brought a smile to my face, and the video tribute was lovely. It’s always beautiful when a person can impact so many lives in such a positive way.

  • Jeannie McKean says:

    Mr Kidd always had the time to speak with students and parents. He was kind, patient and understanding. He always had a smile on his face. He will be missed. Blessings to you and your family.
