To put it simple, Clyde Lewis was my best friend during my late teenage years in Meridian, Mississippi. I made a few great friends in Meridian, but Clyde Lewis was my main man. If you got to know him, he had a heart of gold. Sometimes, his rough exterior made people a little anxious about him. Clyde was a big man, not in height but in mass. People, who did not know him, were not sure if he was going to hug you or knock you out. Clyde was tough. When I first met Clyde I had my concerns about him, but soon afterwards he became a very close friend to me and my family. Later in life once we found each other again, it was like no time had passed. We was still the best of friends. I loved my friend, Clyde Lewis.
Once you got past his rugged exterior and his very brash language, as stated above he had a heart of gold. First and foremost, Clyde was the type that he was not going to be bully or push him around. If anyone was going to do the pushing, he was going to do it. Underneath, he was a person, if you became his friend and he felt he can trust you. He will be your friend for life. Later, after I left to go to the Navy, Clyde continued to check on my sisters and mom to make sure everything was alright. My mom and sisters loved Clyde.
During that time in Meridian, we would go play pool, check out movies, lift weights, go swimming at Highland Park and hang out at the Big Nickel Disco located in downtown Meridian. Clyde helped me get my first Job in Meridian, laying bricks for a new building located by the old Village Fair Mall. We both didn’t last long. That was hard work. We laugh so hard on our last day, getting that last check. We spent the money on potato chips, cookies, and soft drinks. I guess that what 17 years olds did back in the day. Some of the best times were listening to music like Earth, Wind and Fire, LTD, Rick James, and Maze. Sometimes we would get people to buys us liquor and after drinking and listening to music, all of a sudden we became philosophical. Like at 17-18 years old, we knew want we was talking about.
Yeah, right.
Finally, at one time Clyde and I attended a church revival being held at Harris High School Football field, we both asked God to come into our lives. It lasted for a while, but sometimes 17-18 years olds, just wanted to be cool. I believe this led us on the path to rely on God later in life.
Clyde rough and tough shell got us in trouble, once or twice. Our friendship had sides, I had the calmed and thinking side (sometimes) and Clyde was the rough and tough side. I could sometimes talk Clyde out of situations and sometimes he could talk me into all kind of mischief. Some of the mischief we got into was like egging cars on 8th street, turning over Porta-Potties with or without people in them. There were two situations we did and till this day made us both laugh so hard
One Halloween, we got someone to buy us some alcohol. During our drinking we came up with an idea to scare people. There was a cemetery next to Harris High School that had a long dark walkway into Frank-berry Courts where we both lived. I got some of my mother bedsheets and Clyde had a tape recorder. We decided to put the sheets up on sticks in the cemetery by the walkway. What was great that night it was windy, and it added to the ghostly movements of the sheets. We recorded ghost sounds on the tape recorder and placed it next to the sheets. . We sat on his front porch drinking our liquor and all of a sudden people were running thru the walkway sacred to death. One person yelled out: “Did you see that!” We laugh so hard all night.
The other situation was the night of the Redmen Chewing Tobacco event. Clyde talked into chewing the tobacco. Finally, he said we could get high if we swallowing the juice. We did. I got so drunk and high, I had to sleep on his mom’s coach that night. My mom came down in the morning and saw her 17 year old son out cold. She told Mrs. Lewis, Clyde’s mother, to send me home when I get up. When I finally got home with a headache, everything I ate and drink for the next couple of days tasted like Redmen Chewing Tobacco. YUK!
Finally in closing, I am going to miss my lifelong friend since I was a teenager. I love you Clyde Lewis.
