Clyde was the fifth of ten children and a twin brother, to the late Rev. Clevion Robinson. Clyde and his wife, Mae Pearl (Miller) Robinson, met at the age of 12 and enjoyed a blissful marriage of 68 years. They were joined together in holy matrimony in May of 1953. In the same year, Clyde was drafted by the U.S. Army where he served in Korea for two years in the same unit alongside his twin brother. After Clyde was honorably discharged for his service, he came to Saginaw in 1955 with his wife and son Clyde Lavern. Clyde was the first of his family to come to Saginaw and join Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church, where he remained a faithful member until his passing. He led a decorated life of service to his community and to his church. While a member at Mount Olive, Clyde was on the usher board and also a member of the Laymen’s, the finance committee, and the transportation ministry.

Clyde continued the remainder of his occupational career in the manufacturing plants of General Motors in Flint, MI. He was a committee man for the UAW and retired from GM in 1987 after 30 years of service. During the time of his employment, Clyde established two successful businesses: Robinson’s Auto Clinic and Xpress Mart. These businesses collectively prospered in the Saginaw community for over 44 years. Clyde’s family later grew to include three additional children: Sheryl Jean Robinson, Doyle Wayne Robinson, and Reginald Lloyd Robinson. From these offspring came 12 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren, 1 great great granddaughter, and one daughter-in-law, Barbara (Doyle) Robinson.
