He left home in 1948 and joined the service, serving in the Air Force, Army, and the United States Navy, earning ribbons, metals, and the purple heart award. The war left him with scars he would take to his grave; but, those scars and a disabling muscular condition from Korea never stopped him from being the man he was. He was a master carpenter, who would share his skills with all who would listen and wanted to learn. Upon his retirement, he went back to the land he so loved, tilling on his tractor and herding his livestock from pasture to pasture giving him peace and serenity. He returned to school and graduated from Union County adult program in 1986. Active in the VFW, lodge#1082 and member & past Master of the Masonic lodge #52. He was also a historian for those who wanted to learn of the history and growth of Lake Butler. Mr. Clemons was a member of the Church of God and Faith Baptist Church, both located in Lake Butler. Win or lose, he was always a dedicated Gator fan.
