Clyde was  born on August  19,  1935 in Joliet, IL to Lauralee (nee Hardimon) Williams  and Clyde Williams, Sr. His loving mom,  Lauralee, passed  away when  Clyde  was a toddler and God  blessed him with another loving  mom, Virgilee (nee Minor) Williams. 

Clyde attended Joliet Public Schools. He played football in high school and  was  known as the “Golden  Toe”  because of his kicking ability. After high school, Clyde enlisted into the U.S. Air Force, where he did tours of duty in Greenland  and Germany.
