|Dr. Hyder was my Dean when I chaired the Applied Human Sciences
Dept. He was the best administrator I ever served under. He treated
every person with dignity and respect. He taught me so much and I
was always happy to see him and spend time talking with him. My
heart is broken for all of you and us. I pray you find peace. He was
truly a great man. |
|Dr. Hyder was truly the most caring, interested, and genuine
boss I have ever had in my life. He quickly eased my nerves
and turned into a mentor and role model. Even after his
retirement , keeping up with both Jimmie and Dr. Hyder was
always a pleasure. My family would have done anything they
needed in a heartbeat. He was so genuine and sincere. So is
Jimmie. I feel blessed to have known him. He always asked
about my son and his illness - he put others before himself.
There truly are not many like him - I feel very blessed my path
crossed with Jimmie and Dr. H. Thank you for allowing me to
share a glimpse of your life. Your inspiration and
encouragement definitely improved mine. God bless you.|

friend, Mr. Hyder. As a heating and air conditioning service
technician for Bailey’s Htg and Air I have had the pleasure to
get to know Carroll on a personal basis and enjoyed many a
long conversation with him. Always a true gentleman in the
purest sense in that he always took time in his busy schedule
to speak with me. As of right now I am working a government
position in Somalia, Africa so I send my prayers and sympathy
to the Hyder family- to Chris and Jennifer, and to let them
know that I am thinking about them.|
