Larry Burks Clemons Sr. 85 of Evansville Indiana was welcomed into Heaven on January 23, 2022 by his parents Lida and John Clemons Sr., his brothers John Jr. Clemons (Lacine), James Clemons (Florence), sisters Dona Bell Woolsey (Ray), and Grace Saddler (Jim Wilson) (Ben Saddler), and great grandson Seth Lindenschmidt.

He leaves behind his beloved wife of 67 years Laura, who was by his side always, the entire time, sharing everything. They were best friends; together they raised four children Terry Grimwood (Robert Sr.), Anita Huebner (Don), Larry Clemons Jr. (Debbie) and Randy Clemons (Cindy). They helped raise and loved their 8 grandchildren: Robert Grimwood Jr., Alan Grimwood (Racheal), Carey Allen (Nick), Tiffany Lindenschmidt(Kurt), Katherine Epley, Jennnifer Zoph (Jeremy), Randy Clemons Jr., Breanna Clemons. Larry also had 9 wonderful great grandchildren: Camden Grimwood, Raina Grimwood, Brinden Morell, Mylee Allen, Anslei Allen, Madison Williamson, Kyle Lindenschmidt, Derek Lindenschmidt, and Lily Zoph. A special nephew Chris Wilson, and many in laws, cousins, nieces, nephew, and friends that blessed his life.

Larry was an inspiration to all who knew him. He was born handicapped but didn’t consider himself handicapped in any way. He worked his whole life. He spent time planting trees at stripper pits for $1 an hour, worked as manager of Goodwill, was employed by Craddock’s Furniture and finally worked for the City of Evansville Sewer Department on the West Side of Evansville where he retired after 31 years.

Larry and his family ran a trash route for many years, which allowed them a few luxuries. Larry also enjoyed gardening, traveling, gaming, working puzzles, bowling, hunting, fishing, playing clabber, watching wrestling and laughing were his delights, but he clearly loved his family which were involved in his many endeavors. He will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved him

The family wants to thank Heritage Hospice for helping to keep us all comfortable and a special thank you to granddaughter Carey and great granddaughter Anslei, for helping stand in the gap of our worn-out family. He went peacefully with his two best friends at his side.

Services will be held Wednesday January 26, 2022 at Sunset Funeral Home and Memorial Park. Visitation will begin at 10, service at 12, and burial to follow.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to help the family at this most difficult time or be made in his honor to St. Jude.
