Jerald Lee "Bud" Clements Born in Lamar, Missouri on November 6, 1931 and entered into rest on December 31, 2010 in Carmichael, California. He is survived by his wife and high school sweetheart, Jodee. They were married 59 years and have three children Deborah Ritchie, Jerald L.Clements II (Susan) and Lisa Berringer (Rod). He was the proud granddad of seven and the great-granddad of one. Bud moved from his home town of Colton, California in 1965 to Rancho Cordova where he was a 45 year resident. Bud served in the U.S. Air Force and retired from McClellan Air Force Base with over 30 years of service. Following his retirement, he worked for Folsom-Cordova Unified School District for seven years at Rancho Cordova Elementary School. He was a 21 plus gallon blood donor for the Sacramento Blood Source and received the honorary service award from the Parent-Teacher Association. He was a member of the Rancho Cordova United Methodist Church. Bud was active in the Masonic Lodge in Folsom, where he supported other fraternal organizations-the Ben Ali Shrine, the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls (IORG) and the Order of the Eastern Star (OES). He was awarded the Masonic Hiram Award and the IORG Grand Cross of Color. Both awards are for service above and beyond the call of duty. He presided as OES Worthy Patron in 2005. He served on the IORG Advisory Board and was proud to be Rainbow Dad for many of the girls. Bud enjoyed traveling with his wife Jodee. They had just enjoyed a wonderful 33 day trip to the east coast to attend their grandson's wedding. Bud enjoyed duck hunting with his son and his son's friends, his son-in-law, his grandsons. He loved to bird watch from his backyard where he supported the local dove population. Bud liked nothing better than to share a cup of coffee around the kitchen table, in between his DIY projects and crossword puzzles. But his favorite thing was to spend time with his family. A memorial service will be held Saturday, January 8, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at the Rancho Cordova United Methodist Church.
