For those who might have known him, Clive Sweeney, a local Flash Developer and friend of Heather and I, died in a bicycling accident this week. The accident happened just before 8am on Tuesday near the Ebenezer Church Road intersection.

I met Clive through his wife, Brenda who worked with Heather at Watts Elementary School in Durham. Clive was a teacher, an educator in energy conservation, an actor, a graphic designer, a website designer, and a Flash developer. I knew he was into cycling, but we hadn’t seen Clive and Brenda in a while, so I didn’t realize that he had gotten as serious about riding as he had.

His funeral will be at 11am Saturday June 7 at the Chapel of Hall-Wynne Funeral Service. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that people donate to the Animal Protection Society of Durham, 2117 E. Club Blvd. Durham 27704.

I know we will all miss Clive.
