Jimmie Clements Obituary

Jimmie Roscoe Clements passed away on October 4, 2023, at the age of 88 in Montgomery, Ala., surrounded by those who cared for and loved him as deeply as he loved them.

Born in September 1935 to the late Vera Pippin Clements and Woodrow Clements, Jimmie was raised in Tuscaloosa and graduated from Holt High School and later the University of Alabama. He began a long career in fields that spanned military, education, lobbying and consulting. He considered himself a lifelong learner and a lifetime educator who served his community as a high school teacher and principal at Holt High School in Tuscaloosa. Later, Jimmie would teach courses and work as an administrator in the Alabama Community College System. He would be the first to share one of his proudest, defining accomplishments: his service to the country as a member of the United States Marine Corps. Jimmie was also a successful businessman who owned the Cloverdale Gulf Service Station in Tuscaloosa.

Jimmie fiercely loved his family and friends – a trait from which he never wavered. He joins his parents: Vera Pippin Clements and Woodrow Clements; and sisters: Sue Green and Retha Fowler; in Eternal Rest. Jimmie is survived by his wife, Dana Toxey Clements; children: Rhonda Clements Gann (Randy), Tina Clements Dunn (Darrell), and Lindsey Clements Ward (Cam); and grandchildren: Seth Dunn, Hannah Dunn, Emma Dunn, Clements Ward, and Ro Ward.

A world traveler with a voracious appetite for new people, cultures and experiences, Jimmie found fast friends on every continent to which he ventured. At home in Alabama and on ‘his’ mountain in Franklin, North Carolina (where Jimmie was happiest), he sought adventure and found peace in the outdoors. His hobbies included fishing, whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, reading, and ‘classic’ country music – including the likes of Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard.

A celebration of life will be held on October 22, 2023, from 1:00 pm until  4:00 pm at their home in Montgomery. In lieu of flowers, please donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  .
