Charles Eldon Clement M.D. Obituary
Charles Eldon Clement M.D., age 92, of Marysville, CA, passed away on June 19, 2015 at his home in Marysville surrounded by family. Dr. Clement was born to Eldon and Lillian Clement of Colusa on January 21, 1923.

Charlie originally told his Mom he wanted to be a "Fly Boy" aka Fighter Pilot for the Navy but his Mom wanted him to go to medical school. He made a deal with her that if he wasn't accepted for medical school he could be a pilot, so he applied to only one medical school. Fortunately for all of us he was accepted.

He began his studies of internal medicine at Yuba College. From there he received his undergraduate from the University of California, Berkeley and went on to complete his doctorate from the school of medicine at UC San Francisco in conjunction with an accelerated Naval medical program due to the war.

Charlie practiced in Yuba and Sutter County since 1953.

He was one of the founding members of Marysville Medical Group and a very active member of the community serving on the Hospital Board of Directors and many other organizations too numerous to mention. He briefly attempted retirement but found it wasn't for him.

For all that knew him Charlie was a man of few words, but extraordinary actions and an infinite wealth of knowledge.

Charlie was in the United States Navy where he met his wife of 50 plus years, Grace Clement. Grace passed away November 25, 1995, together they had two children Charles Clement (Sue) of Tillamook, OR and Steve Clement (Debbie) of Marysville, CA.

Dr. Clement is survived by his wife Kathy Posey, married May 6, 2015; two sons Charles Clement (Sue), Stephen Clement (Debbie); his six grandchildren, Alexa Coulombe (Christopher), Corey Clement (Kristina), Chad Clement, Bryan Clement, Stevey Clement (Michael) and Casey Clement and two great grandchildren Oden and Xander Coulombe.

Charlie is preceded in death by his parents Eldon and Lillian Clement; wife Grace Clement and brother Meridith Clement (Jackie).
Services will be held 11 AM, Saturday, June 27, 2015 at Yuba College, 2088 N. Beale Road, Linda. A reception will follow at Peachtree Golf and Country Club, 2043 Simpson Dantoni Road, Marysville.
