Robert Alwyn Clements

February 25, 1946 — March 13, 2020

Robert Clements (Bob) of Edgewood, NM passed away on March, 13th in his home surrounded by loved ones, following nearly two years of living with ALS. He just passed his 74th Birthday and is survived by his wife of 55 years(Gloria), 5 children, 18 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. As well as the many people he adopted into his care over the years. He was born and raised in NM and truly saw it as the land of enchantment. He knew more about being a husband and a father than most can even hope to imagine. Bob and Gloria set the example of marriage for all that were lucky enough to bear witness. They worked for their marriage and never gave up, epitomizing the ideal of being together through sickness and in health, good and bad. Their love held them and the family together through the losses of two of their children, Sarah and Jim. They celebrated the good times with gusto, showing the value of good company, and good food, rather than money spent. Christmas would arrive and Bob would spend Christmas Eve getting things ready and then wake all the kids up around 4am to see what wonders Santa had left, even though he had “tested” out all the toys already. He left behind a legacy of love, adventure, work ethic and mischief. His love was unconditional, in the true sense of the word. He was a man of many talents, and shared his penchant for hobbies, and adventure with his children and grandchildren. There wasn’t anything he wasn’t willing to learn. He was an accomplished fisherman, hunter, rancher, farmer, craftsman, musician and loving Christian. A true jack of all trades. He would stop and chat with anyone that was willing to converse and left most with a smile (as long as the conversation wasn’t politics). Bob spent years working within the farming and ranching community throughout NM, hauling anything from hay to pumpkins. He worked in Mount Taylor during the uranium’ boom, owned a motorcycle repair shop and managed a trading post in Ramah. He worked many years at the Albuquerque Publishing Company, as a pressman and then went on to build, repair, refurbish, and tear down printing presses across the country. To sum it up in the words of A.A. Milne “how lucky we are to have something so great that it makes saying good bye so hard”. In lieu of flowers please donate to the Ronald McDonald House or St Judes Hospital. These were both organizations Bob truly believed in and shared with when he could.
