Clint's soul was summoned from this world to the presence of Christ on Sunday, August 6, 2017. On earth, he was devoted to God's Word and the Sovereignty of God as taught in Scripture. As a member of Independent Presbyterian Church, he felt privileged to serve as a Deacon and a long time Ruling Elder. He and his beloved wife, Dot, joined IPC in 1969, both ministering for Christ by serving, teaching, and leading in the church.

He was a long-time securities broker, first with Orvis Brothers and its Memphis successor, EFHutton. He moved to Prudential Securities and its successors Wachovia Securities and Wells Fargo Advisors, where he continued to work with his business partner, Mike Zachry, until his death. Clint was a former president of the Memphis Security Dealer's Association. He was a former member of the Memphis Country Club.

He was preceded in death by his loving, sweet wife of 43 years, Dot Jordan Early; his sister, Martha Early Clark; his brother, Wm. Cole Early; and his grandson, Christian Alexander Early.
