Vernon Eugene Clemons

July 2, 1955 — December 23, 2023

Vernon Eugene Clemons, known affectionately to family and friends as Vernon, left this world on December 23, 2023, at the age of 68. Born on July 2, 1955, in the close-knit community of Hazard, Kentucky, Vernon's journey through life took him to Piedmont, South Carolina, where he passed away, surrounded by the love of his family.

Vernon's life was a testament to the values of hard work, devotion to family, and a passion for the great outdoors. He is survived by a loving family, including his wife Peggy Slone Clemons, with whom he built a life full of joy and shared purpose. His legacy is carried on by his son Christopher Clemons and daughter-in-law Anna; his daughter Tina Cook; his son Donovan Clemons; and his cherished grandchildren Jade Scarborough, Taylor Scarborough, Alyssa Schomer, Aubrey Schomer, Paige Clemons, Riley Schomer, Jaxon Sentell, and Austin Clemons. Vernon was also blessed with great-grandchildren Aiden Tittle, Greyson Moore, and Everleigh Sacher, who brought him immeasurable happiness in his later years.

Preceding him in death were his siblings Vincent, Ruben, Connie, and Brenda. Vernon's memory will be honored and kept alive by his five brothers and one sister, Lewis, Denny, Kermit, Ira, Ricky, and Sandra, who remember him with deep affection and respect.

Vernon's educational journey concluded with his graduation from high school, where he laid the foundation for what would become a fulfilling career. He retired as a Service Technician, a role in which he was known for his reliability and skill. Beyond his professional achievements, Vernon took the most pride in raising a wonderful and loving family, a testament to his generous and courageous spirit.

An avid outdoorsman, Vernon's interests were deeply rooted in the natural world. He found solace and joy in hunting and fishing, activities that not only provided him with a sense of calm but also allowed him to pass on his wisdom and love for the environment to his children and grandchildren. Family gatherings often included stories of Vernon's adventures in the wilderness and the lessons learned from a life lived in harmony with nature.

Those who knew Vernon will remember him for his wise counsel, his generous heart, and his courageous approach to life's challenges.

As we say farewell to Vernon Eugene Clemons, we celebrate a life that was rich in experiences and love. He was a beacon of strength and kindness in his community, and his absence will be deeply felt by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

Vernon's life story is one of enduring commitment—to his family, his passions, and his values. He has left behind a legacy that will continue to inspire and guide his family for generations to come. Vernon's wisdom, generosity, and courage will remain as guiding lights for all who were touched by his presence.

In the quiet moments when we find ourselves in the beauty of the wilderness, by the side of a stream, or under the shade of an old tree, we will remember Vernon. We will smile, knowing that his spirit lives on in the rustling leaves, the gentle currents, and the fertile earth—a true outdoorsman at peace in the eternal natural world he so dearly loved.
