David served his country in the army national guard for 6 1/2 years and served an additional year in the Air Force national guard based at Dow Air Force base in Bangor, Me. David was a “Jack of all trades” and everyone’s go-to guy for help around the house, be it electrical, plumbing, carpentry, you name it, he could do it. He amazed many by his self-taught piano skills, and his ability to capture the attention of the room as soon as he sat down to play. He had the ultimate green thumb. His garden was his pride and joy. All of his grandchildren spent countless hours in the garden with him eating his exquisitely grown cherry tomatoes until their bellies were sore. He loved doing jig-saw puzzles and loved to watch Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy with the love of his life, they never missed an episode. David’s smile and kind eyes will be remembered by anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. His heart was pure gold. He was a faithful Christian and put the lord first. His last days were spent surrounded by his family, reading comforting Bible scriptures and singing songs. David was at peace knowing this was his last chapter here on earth, and looked forward to eternal life with our lord. David was pre-deceased by his mom and dad, Leoren and Esther Clements. He was survived by his wife of 42 years Sharon Clements and their seven children from a “blended” family. Linda Ryan of Augusta, Julie Hilliard and Gary of Belgrade.
