Clem’s association with St. Martha’s began in 1965 when he married his wife, Tina, whose family had vacationed in a Bethany Beach summer cottage (no heat, A/C and few amenities) for generations. After college and a tour in Vietnam with the army, he pursued a career in engineering and management in several large paper industry corporations. During that time, his family lived in the Philadelphia area and in Albany, NY, but they always managed to come back to spend a several weeks in the summer in Bethany Beach with their three boys. After, retirement in 2005, they moved full-time to Bethany where they now live in their year-round house. Clem has served on the Vestry, in the Choir and Bell Choir, on several other church committees and currently as videographer for the Online Services. Tina and Clem have seven grandchildren.
