Fred was born March 28, 1940, to Rollie Dale Clemons and Laura Katherine (Arnold) Clemons and was a life-long Kearney resident. In addition to farming with his father, Freddie, as his mother called him, was a retired member of the Carpenter’s Union and worked many years as a construction superintendent in the Kansas City and surrounding areas. One of his most memorable and proudest accomplishments was completing Southview Elementary School in his hometown of Kearney and being able to see his grandchildren and great-grandchildren attend “his” school. He loved to watch his sons, and later his grandsons race motorcycles, and he truly enjoyed watching his grandkids play sports until his health prevented him from doing so.
Fred is survived by his wife Bette (Thomas) Clemons of 59 years, as well as sister Shirley Jobe, Camdenton; daughter Cindy Johnson, Olathe; son Mark (Linda) Clemons, Kearney; son Mike (Becky) Clemons, Kearney; daughter LeAnn (Dale) Bradberry, Kearney; 9 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, and a host of in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
