Transitioned peacefully at age 89 to eternal life with God on Friday, February 11, 2011, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, surrounded by deeply loving family and in the care of the thoughtful and highly professional staff of Luther Manor. Cliff was born in Milwaukee on February 22, 1921, to George B. and Mary G. (Gregor) Clemens, the seventh of eight siblings. He served his country as a member of the US Army's 105th Calvary, being honorably discharged as a Corporal in 1940. With an exemplary work ethic and as one who truly loved his job, he retired as Interstate Forging's certified purchasing manager after 43 years of employment. He had a lifelong love of horses and dogs, and was an avid golfer. He epitomized the kind and considerate gentleman, and had an endearing smile and a wonderful sense of humor. Cliff was preceded in death by his dearest wife Judith Yvonne (Lunde) after more than 50 years of marriage, and his brothers and sisters, Lillian, Viola, Howard, George, Harvey, and Norma. He is survived by his beloved daughter, Susan C. (Roger L.) Schneider, grandson, Jacob J. Schneider, and close sister, Muriel C. Patzer, and loving nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Cliff enjoyed humming tunes while he went about his daily activities. Just eleven days short of his 90th birthday, he lost his hum. Donations in Clifford's name to charities, especially those helping our military servicemen, or Luther Manor will be appreciated by the family. Private Services will be held at Krause Funeral Home in the spring.
