He was a member of Watkins Chapel AME Zion church where he served as a deacon for many years. Occasionally he attended Joy Delight Church in Troutman.
He was married to Lee Olyoun Sherrill McCoy, who preceded him in death. In addition to his wife and parents, he was also preceded in death by two brothers, R. D. McCoy and L. B. McCoy.
He leaves to cherish the memory of his life a son, Clifford Lewis McCoy, Jr., of the home; a daughter, Nichelle McCoy Williams of Troutman; three grandsons, William McCoy, Luke McCoy and Justus Saller; three granddaughters, Leesha McCoy Martin, Keniya Brown and Caliyah McCoy; one great grandson, Dion Martin; his mother-in-law, Mrs. Mabethel Sherrill; a brother-in-law, Gary Sherrill; two sisters-in-law, Prophetess Beverly (Pastor Walter) Leach and Lynn Sharon Blue; two nephews, Walter Leach, Jr. and Michael Leach; two nieces, 1st Sgt Natasha Blue and Shalay Blue-Diaz; cousins, Blanche (James) Sherrill, Barbara Smith and Charlie Smith; and a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, the Watkins Chapel AME Zion Church Family, and friends.

In tears we saw you sinking, and watched you fade away
Our hearts were almost broken, we wanted you to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping, so peacefully and free from pain;
How could we wish you back with us to suffer that again.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
Submitted with love by The Family
