Clement, the youngest of 11 children, was born May 23, 1933 in Mankato to John and Katherine (Schaack) Bachmeyer. At age 13, he started his first job as stock boy at Jabbra’s Grocery Store on Third Avenue, stocking shelves and delivering cases of beer to customers. Clem began working at Continental Can (later Crown Cork and Seal) when he was 19 years old, a career that lasted over 46 years until retirement. While taking his twin nieces, Donna and Darlene, to Hillcrest Drive-In for root beers, Clem met the love of his life, Linda Reichel. They were united in marriage on August 30, 1952 and were blessed with five daughters. In his spare time, Clem enjoyed lawnmower and Volkswagen repair, traveling throughout the United States with Linda, and spending time with family and friends.

Clem is survived by his wife, Linda, of Mankato; daughters, Carla (Bruce) Carlson of Mankato, Sandy Bachmeyer of Holmen, WI, Debbie (Tim Gates) Paulson of Andover, Vicki (Ron) Bultman of Faribault, and Teresa Bachmeyer of Austin; grandchildren, Michelle (Scott) Grimes-Gary, Jason (Kari) Sack, Joan Kruckeberg, Crystal Wiehr, Jenni (Mike) Walker, Melinda Paulson, Mike Paulson, Amy (Tracy Storlie) Bachmeyer, Katy (Marshall) Hanson, and David (Rena) Paulson; great-grandchildren, Mike Walker, Tiffany Walker, Keyanna Wiehr, Keith Sack, Lilly Rollag, Makaylynn Rollag, Cassidy Rollag, Evan Sack, Kaytrina Hanson, Trent Hanson, Nythaninelle Bachmeyer, Graham Paulson, Levi Paulson, Owen Hanson, Theresa (Chad) Goodsell, and Thomas (Danielle) Grimes; brothers-in-law, Roger Reichel, Jerry Reichel, and Don Klint; sister-in-law, Pat Reichel; and many nieces and nephews that were all very special to him.
