He developed a successful contracting business and built many homes. He also built dressers, desks, entertainment units, and many coffee and end table sets treasured by family members.
Clem always enjoyed teasing and pulling a joke on someone, playing cards, working in the garden, sleeping in the sun, making wine and was proud of Beth’s beautiful flower beds. He loved music and dancing, and had a large circle of friends through square dancing.
Once retired they spent winters in Yuma AZ with round dancing winter friends, he and Beth were superb round dancers. But above all, he loved his wife and children, and delighted in his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
A celebration of life will be held in spring.
