Blue Springs - On July 13, 2021 George E. Clemmons received the inheritance he has lived his life for – his crown is full of jewels. George spent his life making sure the love of his life, Nancy Clemmons, was taken care of. He could often be heard serenading "Remember When" and told everyone she was his dessert, to which she would roll her eyes. In their 50 years together they raised three children, Stacy, Michael and Elizabeth in Blue Springs, the city he loved. George loved to do many things – fish, find arrowheads, explore the woods, ride his Harley, tell stories and jokes, but most of all he loved nothing more than spending time with his family. He would lovingly tell the story the first time he bought his children a brand new pair of shoes. As he proudly watched them run around the mall in their new shoes he realized those shoes cost as much as he was spending on cigarettes and alcohol – he never bought another six-pack or pack of cigarettes but instead would bring prizes home in his lunch box.
George left behind a heritage. George lived his life to serve God, his family and his country. If the church doors were open George was there – it didn't matter if he didn't feel well, he was at church. He was a faithful man who loved to tell others about the Lord. If you asked him to pray about something you could count on him truly touching God on your behalf.
If you went to Home Depot or the grocery store with George you would meet numerous of his friends along the way. Not only did those who knew him love him but anyone who stopped to talk with him instantly became his friend. In reminiscing his memories the words most used to describe him are kind, love for people, true friend, strong work ethic, stories, jokes, and lots of laughs.
Goldie, or as we knew her G-ma, has been reunited with her baby. George has joined his parents Gayle and Goldie (Landis) Clemmons, and his siblings Kenneth Clemmons and Lee Etta Dangerfield.
Left behind to mourn his loss but rejoice in his victory are his wife, Nancy Clemmons, children Stacy Mays, Michael Clemmons, and Elizabeth and Chris Birkenmaier all of Blue Springs. His quiver was full in the role as a papa leaving behind Tyler, Hannah, CJ, Stephanie, David, Lucy, Jazmine, Travis, DeShaun, Cody, Mya, Ryder, Brandon, and Breanna. George loved his sister children as his own, his extended Landis cousins, extended family, his church family, and his many friends.
If you knew George he always made an opportunity to tell you how good God was to him. As you look for ways to honor him give whenever you can, love those around you, have fun and laugh at every opportunity but most of all live your life to please God. He would proudly say he memorized a Bible verse and with a smile quote "Jesus wept", today as we weep, we also have peace that he has obtained his greatest reward.
