Clarence C. Bemis

Raymond – Clarence C. “Junior” Bemis, 78, died peacefully June 6, 2008, at his home surrounded by family.

He was born In Hooksett, on August 23, 1929, to Clarence Gardner and Albertha (Bernard) Bemis. He grew up in Hooksett and moved to Epping in 1952, where he married his beloved Alice before settling in Raymond in 1964. In his later years, he enjoyed spending time in Florida.

He had a major stroke in April 2007, and made an amazing recovery that gave his family another whole year of precious time with him. He moved in with his daughter Tami and her family in August 2007, and with the help of her brothers and other family members, he spent many enjoyable days with them all.

Junior served in the U.S. Army as a mechanic for 58th Engineer Treadway Bridge Company and was stationed in Korea. He worked as a volunteer for Raymond Community Action. He also attended Raymond Baptist Church and soon became part of the church family. In his final year he came to know Jesus and is resting in Heaven now. He will be truly missed by all.

Junior was predeceased by his amazing wife Alice (Eaton) in 1987, two brothers, Wilder Bemis and Leon Bemis, and a sister Nora Bemis.

Family members include two brothers, Andrew Bemis and his wife Louise of Goffstown, and Frank Bemis and his wife Vi of Manchester; three sons, Greg Bemis and his longtime companion Kathy Daskal Lee of Raymond, Peter Bemis and his wife Karen of Northwood, and Bill Bemis and his wife Kim of Raymond; one daughter, Tami Cole and her husband Michael of Raymond; 11 grandchildren: Melissa Buckner and her husband Daniel of Deerfield, Daniel Bemis of Northwood, James Bemis and his wife Tracy of Northwood, Ryan Bemis of Northwood, Sean Bemis of Raymond, Richard A Smith III and his fiancé Stevie St. Hilaire of Derry, Derek Bemis of Raymond, Matthew Bemis of Raymond, Marc Bemis of Bedford, Benjamin Cole of Raymond, and Nicholas Bemis of Raymond; two great-grandchildren, Rigby Buckner and Noah Buckne, both of Deerfield; and several nieces and nephews.
