Raymond Luther “Luke” Goude


Raymond Luther “Luke” Goude, 64, the beloved son of Bethel Oliver Goude and Miriam Helena Joye Goude, departed this life Tuesday, January 16, 2018 unexpectedly at his residence in Myrtle Beach.
         Mr. Goude was born May 13, 1953 in Hemingway.  He was a 1971 graduate of Pleasant Hill High School. He earned a Business Associate degree from Columbia Commercial Business College.  In 1988, he opened the St. Clements Beach Bar & Grill in Myrtle Beach.  He was also the owner and operator of Proper Attire Hospitality Wear in Myrtle Beach for over 20 years.   He was a devoted Clemson Tiger Fan.  He was a lifelong member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church.  “Luke”, as he was affectionately known by family and friends, had a natural radiance of continuous joy and love.  His loyalty and care reached beyond those who were apart of his life and to those strangers who would cross his life’s path.  Luke’s life leaves a legacy fulfilling the great commandment, love your neighbor as yourself.  Above all, he loved God, his country, and his family.
         He leaves behind:  his parents; a brother, Reuben Goude (Wanda); two sisters, Gwen Goude Hartgrove (Duane) and Brenda Goude Rich; and his nieces and nephews, Jennifer (Hayward), Taylor, Cassidy, Courtney, Alexis (Zach), Binkie, Anna, and Bentley.  He will be dearly missed also by his extended family: Aunt Annie, Aunt Ruthie, Aunt Lois (Uncle Hassie), Aunt Doots; and many cousins and friends. 
Funeral Services will be 2PM, Saturday, January 20, 2018 at his home church, Mt. Zion Baptist Church, 5542 Carvers Bay Road, Hemingway, SC 29554.  Interment directed by the Hemingway Chapel of McKenzie Funeral Home will follow in the church cemetery.
The Goude family will receive family and friends, 6-8PM, Friday evening, January 19, 2018 in the Mt. Zion Baptist Church sanctuary.
