Clifton Curtis Sneed was born on February 17, 1934 to James "Red" Albert Sneed and Allie Mae Franklin in Pilot Knob, Texas. He attended school in the Austin Independent School District and was a graduate of the original L. C. Anderson High School.

After attending high school, he enlisted in the U. S. Army in 1958. It was during his tenure in the army that he exercised his athletic ability in boxing. Originally taught by his older brothers, he was able to dominate the sport while serving his country. After his short tenure in the army, he moved back to Texas where he met the first wife, Inez. This union produced a bubbling baby boy, Clifton Curtis Sneed, Jr., his pride and joy. After the union ended, Clifton Sr. moved to the east coast, New Jersey, to be close to his sisters, Marie and Bill and brother Van Sneed. It was there where he met the love of his life and best friend, Rosie Lee McNeil. They were married in 1963. Although no children were born to this union, they lived a life full of love and shared that love with their only child, Clifton Jr. as well as nieces and nephews.

In 1987, Clifton and his wife moved to Texas and joined the family church, New Hope Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend O. T. Arnold. Clifton served in many capacities of the church: the choir, the deacon board, and the male chorus, just to name a few. In his later years, he even tried his hand at playing the piano.

Clifton was preceded in death by his parents, brothers James Roger Sneed, Van Albert Sneed II; sisters Mable Davis, Mildred Jones, Marie Payton and Harriet Davis.
Mr. Clifton Curtis Sneed, Sr. left this earthly realm on August 18, 2013. He leaves to cherish his life and his memory, his loving wife of fifty years, Rosie L. McNeil-Sneed, son: Clifton C. Sneed, Jr. (Marva), grandchildren: Cheron and Tychique (Mahogoney); great-grandchildren: Jaworski, Hovita and Aziriah Gabriel; brothers: Belvin (Gertie), Kennie and Kermit (Shirley), sisters: Lucille Payton and Bobbie Bigham; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
