He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Roberta; children Angela Dawn, Katherine, Jonathan (and wife Casey Jo), and Cherise; two brothers and best friends, Alan (and wife Dora) and Donald (and wife Cindy); and two grandchildren.
The Dryden family appreciates all who have poured love into the family in so many amazing and wonderful ways, including the guys of Grace Church who were a gift from God on a special Saturday; Stone’s, Inc. for the immeasurable gift of giving Roberta time with Cleve; and a special dose of gratitude and thanks to the nurses and physical therapist of CenterWell Home Health and Gentiva Hospice who were such blessings and also became caring and compassionate friends.
