Dear David,
My most sincerest condolences. Your dad was a man for all to emulate and to try to achieve to be like. His guidance and friendship will be missed. To see Clement at the Masonic Lodge and to hear him recite the Staircase and Master Mason charges was incredible and humbling. Always a friendly handshake and genuine smile is what I will remember.

I always enjoyed talking with Clem at Eastern Maine Retirees meetings when I was President of his union. His pride for his state service was second only to the pride he had for his family. My sincere condolences b
