Clem loved being out on the Farm with Marsha & Kevin. He was always kind and considerate. He especially liked going to yard sales and always seemed to find great buys to bring Marsha. The ultimate compliment he paid Marsha was that if anyone would go to heaven it would be her for all the great care she gave him in his last years on this earth. Marsha went way above and beyond her duties as a daughter. Due to this great care Clem was given more years on this earth. He loved his kids and grandkids. Rest in peace dear Clem. Jeanne Motl
