Will never forget you chasing us and putting shaving cream on our faces, softball games, the teasing, all the Sunday meals & fun at Grandma & Grandaddy's with ALL of our families together in 1 place. Miss Daddy and all of his siblings. So heartbreaking that you are all no longer here. I know God is in charge, will say a prayer for him dealing with all these Clem's in Heaven. Love you very much!

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I have such fond memories of Wayne . His quick wit was very entertaining. It's sooo sad he is the last sibling of The Clem clan. Love and Sympathy to you all.

The hunt club won't be the same without 4 Speed. So many good memories.

My sympathy is with your family. Enjoyed for years seeing and talking with Wayne at Kenbridge Supply.

Some people you meet, you just never forget. They make that kind of impression. Wayne told us we were expecting our second child. Only a blood test confirmed because it was too early otherwise. He knew, but how. Through the years his love of his wife, daughter, son in law and granddaughter was so evident. He was happy and kind. He was funny. He was just nice. A good person. We have thought of him and so many others in the two years since we left Virginia. Our hearts break for his family. God Bless you.
