Memories

I was saddened to hear of your loss. I visited Fairbault with Barry in 1989 when we were both in the USAF. It was a great Memorial day weekend and I was forever impressed with "Clem and Aud." They were full of life and great hosts. I know their friends and family will miss them greatly! I am sorry to hear of their passing. Chuck Ericson

Memories

Hello Kim, Paula, Barry and Trisha, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I have many fond memories of both of your parents. The most vivid of those of course are of your dad. All the fun things he did while camping with us at Fox Lake. The lawn mower races, the rides home from White Sands, and many others will live on through those lives he touched... My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. Love, Cheryl and Brian Bisping

Just got the news today and my thoughts and prayers are for all of Clem's family. Clem touched so many people with his giant heart, warm smile, quick laugh and his uncanny ability to make a stranger into a friend in a very short time. The world needs 'good guys' and we lost one of the best in Clem. It was truly an honor to know you Clem. You won't ever be forgotten, and I promise to 'infect others' the way you touched me with a genuine love of life and a wonderful kindness you showed to all who crossed your path. I miss you and thank you for being a part of my life.
