I have so many fond memories of Pastor Clem. He counseled my husband and I before our marriage 38 years ago. I learned much from him in prayer meetings. I still sing the songs from the Summer Bible Club in my private devotion. I was also very blessed by his sermons. He used his gifts to bring Glory to God! You knew he loved the children. I will be praying for your comfort!

Pastor Clem and his dear wife, Marie, are two of the kindest Christian hearts we have the good pleasure of knowing. Pastor was always soft-spoken and tender, displaying the character of Christ our Savior. He and Marie modeled again and again for us what it is to put God above all else. Thank you dear Pastor and true friend. Until we see you again with Him in glory. Lovingly,

I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers to the family. I did not know Pastor Clem personally but I have known his daughter Annette for many years. I see the faithfulness and love for our Lord in Annette . I look forward to meeting this amazing man someday.

Pastor Clem,

You and Marie worked together and served so many people in so many ways. I will never forget all you have done for me and my family, our conversations about the struggles and joys of this life, and the reality of Jesus Christ and life in Heaven. You are there! Thank you for your kindness, wisdom, and teaching us the truth.

A true man of God. Clem taught me how to live as a godly man. His life in itself was a testimony to all. Greg Rose
