Ken Bressett writes:
"Clyde was my dear friend and inspiration for over 50 years. He was always a charming host and entertainer at his home in Cuernavaca whenever I visited him there. He will be missed by all for his vast knowledge, cheerful attitude and good humor."
Anthony Tumonis of
Tucson, Arizona writes:
"Clyde Hubbard was a pioneer and scholar in Mexico Coinage who will be missed by everyone he came in contact with. Kind and generous, Clyde showed compassion and made you feel like you were family. I always looked forward to visiting with Clyde at numerous coin shows though out the years. Clyde made me a better Numismatist with his friendship."
Adrián González-Salinas writes:
"Don Clyde Hubbard will be missed by all of Mexico's numismatists.
QEPD Mr. Clyde Hubbard."
