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.

Dr. Hyder was a wonderful inspiration when I returned to ETSU for graduate school. He served on my thesis committee and was always so encouraging. He was pleased to know that one of the teachers in my high school career that I felt helped me so much in Math was his mother in law. Prayers for his family.

Dr. Hyder was an inspiration to me, having taught me architectural and house construction classes in the early part of my career. I have never forgotten his help and encouragement. I am so sorry to hear of his passing and wish to express my condolences to his family.

It is with a heavy heart that I hear of the passing of a dear 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.

My thoughts are with you and family at this difficult time. Love and Hugs
