Enoch was the father of Methuselah and great-grandfather of Noah.  The reference Renfield has in mind is this:

And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Genesis 5:24


The passage seems to imply that Enoch did not die in the normal way, but was raised to Heaven by God.  The Book of Enoch is considered part of the bible by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.  It describes Enoch's visits to Heaven.
