Obituary

Boyd D Clements, 94, of Elmwood, passed away on Thursday, January 2, 2020. Boyd was born in Elmwood, NE to Orley and Emma (Kunz) Clements on February 20, 1925. He had one older brother, Keith and younger sister, Norma. He graduated from Elmwood High School in 1942. Boyd married Donna Anderson on December 23, 1947. They had two children, Sandra and Rex.

Boyd joined the Army Air Forces in 1943. He was part of the 8th Air Force Group and 486th Bomber Group. He was stationed in Sudbury, England where he served 14 missions as a co-pilot on a B-17 bomber. Boyd was very proud to be a WWII Veteran.

After Boyd and Donna married, they moved to California where Boyd went to Cal Aero Tech and became an aeronautical engineer. They returned to Nebraska where he worked as an engineer at Cushman for 30 years, retiring in 1989.

In Elmwood, Boyd spent a large portion of his spare time developing and operating Grandpa’s Woods Golf Course, which he was very proud of. He was a lifelong member of St. Paul United Methodist Church.

Boyd and Donna enjoyed spending summers at North Lake in South Bend, NE and winters in South Padre Island, TX. He enjoyed fishing, family time, and taking multiple friends and family on the Clements Family homemade pontoon.

He volunteered several hours with multiple service organizations including church, the American Legion, VFW and the 8th Air Force Historical Society. In his last years, he was instrumental in the creation of the Veterans Museum at the GAR Hall in Elmwood.

Boyd is survived by his daughter Sandy (Bill) Graham of Eagle, son Rex (Donna) Clements of South Bend; grandchildren Kristi (Rob) Knaak of Lincoln, John (Stacy) Graham of Madison, WI, Joel (Jessica) Clements of Murdock, Justin (Jennie) Clements of Omaha; and 9 great-grandchildren.

My father Raymond Prozinski was tail gunner on Boyd's B-17 for those 14 missions. He was proud of his service and proud of the men he flew with. Ray passed in 2014. My condolences to Mr. Clements' family and friends.

My wife and I are sorry to hear of Boyd's passing. I worked with Boyd in Tool Design department at Cushman from 1974 until his retirement and am grateful for his guidance since I had no previous tooling experience. Those were the days when getting together for company events was a pleasure and it knitted us together as an extended family. Boyd played a big role in that because you could expect to run into your peers at Grandpa's Woods for more good times and a warm smile from Boyd. Those days are gone but not forgotten and Boyd will remain in our hearts along with those memories. The one that really stays with me is the first time I golfed there... I could just see the top of the flag and had no judge of distance. To my amazement when I got there the ball was on the sand green and I yelled over to Boyd who was doing course maintenance, "did you see I landed on the green!". Calm as could be, Boyd says "I saw you would have been 50 yards into the cornfield if you hadn't hit the flag". (some of you may not recall that back then the flags were atop of a sturdy tree branch}. Thanks for the memories Boyd and may The Lord keep you in his care. Rich and Sheryl Jedlicka.
