Michael “Mike” Tarver Clements, 76, went home to be with the Lord on November 23, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents, Otis and Mary Clements; wife, Shannon Hill Clements; children, Michael Clements, Jr. and Patty Clements; and sisters, Lauren, Nora, and Carol. Michael is survived by his wife, Dee Clements; children, William Clements, Aubrey Wormington, Richard Wormington, Chasity Skinner (Eric), David Bailey (Camille Furr); grandchildren, Miranda Clements (John Rutherford), Casey Dalton (Wendy Schoenrock), and Tyler Upchurch; and 17 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren, and one great-grandchild on the way; and daughter in-law, Sonya Clements.

He was the owner of Metal Products of Alabama, a company that he started from the ground floor and made it a success. He worked side by side with his son, Michael until Michael’s passing. Mike was a member of Bethlehem United Methodist Church in Hueytown, where he gladly served His Lord and Savior faithfully. He was an animal lover, rescuing many. He never turned away a stray and that extended to people as well. He had a servant’s heart and would extend grace to those who needed 2nd chances. He would give to everyone he could, including jobs when none were to be found elsewhere. He loved music, singing, and dancing. Restoring classic cars and going to the shows to see them when he could. He was an avid coin and gun collector. He loved watching the garden grow. However, his biggest enjoyment came from his family, who he loved dearly.

Michael was a member of the NRA, several classic car organizations, Sons of the Confederacy, the Republican Party, and a big lover and supporter of President Donald J. Trump.

Michael had a heart for supporting many charities with is gifts of love, which is why his family requests that in lieu of flowers, that donations be made in his memory to the American Liver Foundation, www.liverfoundation.org.

A visitation will be held on Sunday, November 28, 2021 at 1pm at Johns Ridout’s Elmwood Chapel with a celebration of his life to follow at 2 pm; burial will follow at Elmwood Cemetery.
