Pastor Clyde was truly a great man of God !  Such a kind, humble pastor with the sweetest spirit.  He loved people and loved talking with people and really getting to know them. He served Roper Mtn Baptist well and we'll never forget him and how he helped our church by being interim pastor for a season. He baptized my youngest daughter there and met us at the church one afternoon to talk with her...taking time to care about her and serve his Lord. He was also a great friend to my late uncle Ariail Smith. We'll cherish the memories....what an honor to have known him.  God bless you at this time - prayers of comfort for you Paula and your family.  What an amazing legacy he leaves behind.

Brother Clyde was my first pastor when I was saved at 22.  He baptized me and led my ordination council to the ministry. He was a faithful preacher of the Word and a wise, patient counselor.  I thank God for his example of Christian living and ministry.
Charles and Mary Ruth Elliott left a message on November 28, 2020:
Brother Clyde was such a wonderful servant of God.  I am sure that when he gets to heaven the Lord will say:  "Well done my good and faithful servant.  Enter into the joy of your Lord."  In the days ahead my wife, Mary Ruth, and I will be praying that God will comfort his precious family.

I am so very thankful that I was able to get to know Mr. Clyde while working with Good News Club. He was a kind but honest man. He and I would have conversations weekly. His love for God was evidenced in all he said and did. He was wonderful in his communications with the children. I will miss him. My sincere thoughts are with the family.

Rev. Wright was an amazing man who I was privileged to have known.  He and his wife were leaders to the youth of Brandon Baptist Church he was a great friend to my father Doyle Clary and loved to talk sports.  He also loved to tell the story of he and my dad trimming the Christmas Tree at the church and they kept cutting to get it just right that they had very little tree left.  My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.  May God Bless you.
