Clinton's first love was his family. Between the two families he was father to 15 children, 20 grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren.

Clinton's second love was fire fighting. He started fighting fires as a teenager in high school. In 1954 he started as a paid fireman at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station. He worked his way up to Fire Chief and reluctantly retired at the mandatory age of 55. Throughout all of this time he was an active member of the Leonardtown Volunteer Fire Department. He especially loved teaching fire safety to children. Using the character and costume of Sparky the Fire Dog, he introduced several generations of young children to the elements of fire safety through school visits and community parades. He is an inductee to the Hall of Fame of both the Southern Maryland Firemen's Association and the Maryland State Firemen's Association. His membership in the U.S. Navy Fire Chiefs Association enabled him to travel and make friends in all 50 states of the country. A few years after his retirement as fire chief, he trained to become a Court Commissioner for St. Mary's County. After a decade of this, he once again tried retirement. Only a few months went by before he took on the job of court bailiff for Judge Abrams.

He served in the Maryland National Guard for 10 years. He was a 4th Degree Sir Knight with St. Mary's Knights of Columbus, Council 1470 holding many Officer Positions throughout his years of service. He was a member of St. Aloysius Choir, and the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
