TALLMADGE -- Richard W. Clem, 49, passed away December 16, 2013.

Richard was born in Bedford, Ohio and resided most of his life in Tallmadge. He was a 1983 Tallmadge High School graduate and went on to earn his BS in Finance from The University of Akron. He was the owner of Accurate Lawn Maintenance and Manager of Tallmadge Towne Apartments for over 25 years. Richard was an extremely hard working, kind hearted, generous man who was dedicated to his family and friends. He loved a good football game and was an avid animal lover. Richard had a great sense of humor, had the ability to make everyone laugh and could tell a story like no other. "Professor Clem", as his family often referred to him, loved to explain theories and how things worked and was often told he missed his calling and should have been a teacher. He was deeply loved by many and will be greatly missed.

Taken too soon, he is survived by his wife of 18 years, Debora; daughters, Alexis and Alyssa; son, Evan; father, James L. Clem Sr. of South Carolina; mother, Barbara L. Johnson of Akron; sisters, Deborah (Sanford) Rich of Darien, Conn. and Diane L. Anderson of Tallmadge; brother, James L. Clem Jr. of Tallmadge; many nieces, nephews and friends.

Funeral service will be held 10 a.m. Saturday, December 21, 2013 at The Donovan Funeral Home, 17 West Ave. (on the Historic Tallmadge Circle), with Pastor Scott Baker officiating. Interment will be at Chestnut Hill Memorial Park. Visitation will be 4 until 7 p.m. Friday at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Humane Society of Greater Akron, 7996 Darrow Road, Twinsburg, OH 44087.
