Clements "Clem" Quint Obituary
January 3rd, 1923  Clements Quint was the sixth of eight children born to Andrew and Catherine (Kreutzer) Quint in St. Joseph, Missouri. Clem passed away March 7th, 2016 in Sterling, CO.   He was baptized at St. James Church.  He moved to Colorado with his family when he was a child and  attended schools at a country school in Ft. Morgan, CO in Brush, CO and graduated from Merino High School in 1940.  
After graduating high school Clem joined the United States Navel Reserve as an Aviation Cadet. He was discharge from the U.S. Navel Air Station in Hutchinson, KS in  August of 1943.  After being discharged he worked seasonally for various farmers around the area and he started working for Ferdinand Luft of Sterling  where he met his future wife Martha Luft. He later worked for Conrad Luft, Martha's father farming and ranching.  Clem and Martha were married January 28, 1945 at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Sterling, CO.  To this union five children were born, Karen, Ruth, Mike, Tom and Mark.   After they were married they leased a farm at Messex's for two years after which Clem returned to work for Conrad Luft until 1951 when they purchased a farm in Fort Lupton and moved their family there until 1954 when they moved to Atwood, CO to farm for Conrad.  In 1961 Clem and Martha purchased and moved to a farm in Merino, CO where Clem farmed and did custom farm work until 1970 when they moved to Garner, Iowa where he took a job as District Manager of Archer Oil Company. He later became an agent for Farm Bureau Insurance.
In 1977 Clem and Martha moved from Iowa to Akron, CO where he continued to sell insurance.  They later purchase the Homestead Restaurant that he and his daughter Ruth and son-in-law Cliff operated.  In 1989 they moved back in to Sterling.  He decided he wanted to be more involved in agriculture again so when his son Tom opened the Lazy E Bar Feedlot in Atwood he helped operate it until it closed in 1994. He  drove south of Brush everyday to drive the feed truck  at  Livestock Exchange Farm for Bob Walker until he finally decided it was too much driving.  In 1995 they moved to the Luft House on West Main in Sterling to maintain the farm and yard.  He remained there until May of 2012 when he decided it would be nice to get out of town and be back in the country so he moved to Tom's ranch north of Akron.  He loved the peacefulness there and being able to watch the cows and horses from his porch. 
During his life time he was very active in many organizations, some of which were The Lutheran Church, Farm Bureau, Rotary Club, Lions Club, the Legion  Akron Town Council and The Akron Chamber of Commerce.. He also enjoyed bowling, golfing and fishing.
He was proceeded in death by his parents, his brothers Andy, Tony and an infant brother, his sisters Flavia, Hilda, Lydia, and Lucinda a grandson Ryan Quint, his son Mark, his wife Martha and a daughter-in-law Suzanne. He is survived by daughter Karen, daughter Ruth, her husband Cliff, son Mike and son Tom and his wife Sue, twelve grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren, three great, great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews and many friends.
