I moved to Silverstone in December of 2020. After having some drainage issues, I went next door to ask if this was normal, Mr. Cluck came to the door and we talked for 10 minutes. He shook my hand and welcomed me to the neighborhood. Mr. Cluck was a very kind and approachable man. Sincerest condolences to the family.
