Clyde attended St. Luke Primitive Baptist Church, under the late Rev John Cooke. He was baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins by Elder Lavelton Daniels and his brother, Minister Jermane Enoch.
Clyde volunteered in the food ministry at Greater Emmanuel Apostolic Church alongside his mother, providing food for families, and always eager to cook and make people happy, with his smile and laughter. His faith in God was shown by his love for other people. Clyde’s favorite scripture was Psalm 30:5,
“For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.” He was gifted and skilled with his hands. He could fix anything and enjoyed painting and doing things around the house.

Clyde was easy going, and believed in enjoying life to the fullest, going with the flow, and moving at his own pace. He was mild-mannered and never in a rush.
