Dan Stanley Clements Sr.

Dan graduated in 1968 from John Yeates High School. He retired as a millwright and toolroom mechanic from Union Camp Corporation and International Paper after 37 years. Dan lived a full life. He was exceptionally proud of his family and never missed an opportunity to brag on his children and grandchildren. Winter was undoubtedly Dan’s favorite season. He loved decorating for Christmas, being one of Santa’s favorite helpers and then heading off to the ski slopes as often as possible.

Dan is survived by his wife of 40 years, Cindy Crumpler Clements; daughter, Lisa Clements Lucas; sons, Dan Clements Jr. (Stephanie), Jesse Clements (Helen) and Derek Clements (Erika); grandsons, Tommy Lucas (Austin), Austin Clements, Peyton Clements, Jacob Clements, Charlie Clements, Dan “Trace” Clements III; granddaughter, Kennedy Clements; great-granddaughter, Amelia Lucas; sister, Delores “Dee Dee” Clements Darden (Tommy) and many other loving family members and friends.

A visitation will be held on Sunday, July 11 from 7to 8 p.m. at Parr Funeral Home and Crematory, 3515 Robs Drive, Suffolk, VA 23434. A funeral service will be held on Monday, July 12, at 2 p.m. at Parr Funeral Home with Rector Eileen Walsh officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Dan’s memory to Special Olympics – Area 29 c/o Diann Holt, 5117 Stratford Drive, Suffolk, VA 23435.
