Robert Joseph Clemenger, 69, our beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother-in-law, and friend passed away very unexpectedly on November 4, 2019. A 34-year resident of Marietta, GA, he was born in Niagara Falls, NY on July 20, 1950 and was preceded in death by parents, Clinton (Scotty) and Anne Clemenger. He recently obtained dual United States and Canadian citizenship.

Earning a B.A. degree in Sociology, he graduated from the University of Buffalo in 1972. Bob also earned a J.D. Law degree from John Marshall Law School in 1985— an accomplishment that was known only to his family.

Bob served eight years as a Public Health Advisor with the Centers for Disease Control, the job that brought he and Louise to Atlanta. He then began a 31 year career as a Letter Carrier with the US Postal Service. Most of his years were spent at the Northside Carrier Facility, retiring from there in October 2016.

Interests included reading, attending Broadway shows, traveling, discovering family genealogy, snowboarding, his two favorite cats, restoring his ’70 Chevy Impala, serving as a deacon at Gwinnett Bible Chapel, and loving on his grandkids.

Cherishing the memories and fun times are his wife of 43 years, Louise (Bain) Clemenger, Marietta, GA; daughter and son-in-law, Caroline and Joshua Josef, three grandchildren: Luke (9), Emberly (6), and Whitley (6mo), Kennesaw, GA; sister-in-law and her husband, Linda and Steven Damiani and their children, Catherine, Steven and Amanda, Barrington, RI.

We’ll miss you Pops!

Louise, Gary and I love you and Bob and have wonderful memories of Gwinette Bible Chapel and my time working with you in the Camp Hope kitchen. We are so saddened by Bob's death, knowing though, that he is with his Lord. We send our love to you and Caroline and her family as you navigate the month's ahead without your husband, father and grandfather. May the God of peace wrap his arms around you and be your comfort in the days ahead. We love you and will see you tomorrow as we celebrate Bob's life.

To the Clemenger family. I worked with Bob for a number of years at the Northside Carrier Facility. He was a very caring man. I enjoyed him as a coworker and a person. He will truly be missed. May God keep you and your family in this time of need. We are praying for you and with you.

Family,
I worked with Bob for many years at Northside Carrier Facility. Always a gentleman and a kind, quiet hard working man. As we were both from NY, we shared stories of Yonkers. I was shocked to hear of his passing and pray that the Lord will comfort you, strengthen you and you will find peace and joy!

In February 2000 I had the pleasure of traveling to Bryson city North Carolina With Bob. Bob had just purchased the Jeep Patriot. Bob was our road trip lead on the way to camp. He had the latest GPS device. I will never forget that trip with GBC families. Bob was a very humble brother. I will miss him because Bob and Louise always prays for my family. May the lord comfort you in the coming days. Love Monzy Mathew.

Louise, We are praying for you and the family. We have known y’all for over 34 years. Bob was always sweet, helpful and a man of few words, so that explains why Bob, Kevin and my Dad all got along so well. We love you both and we will miss him at GBC. Love, Kevin and Cathy Britt

How could it be… Nov 4th, 2019 & now…
To Louise, with Caroline, Joshua and your precious grand-children Luke, Emberly & Whitley! We greet in sorrow Linda and Steven Damiani with your children Catherine, Steven and Amanda.

This stunning news of Bob’s leaving us so suddenly was especially poignant as we were just enjoying each other’s fellowship and company on your trip north; at Bethany Chapel and personal visits! It brought you closer to our hearts. We also saw Bob’s affection of New York and Hastings where Louise and Linda grew up. Then we remember Louise and Bob’s celebration on their 40th Anniversary here with us!

Bob was privileged to enter in the presence with his Lord without the common long trial of suffering. Now with the Lord. We are reminded of the privilege of the moment; whether witnessing, being with family or conversations with those we love. With strangers we seek to know and appreciate.
How valuable are those moments! Now the pain of unexpected loss and sudden change includes us all, brothers and sisters in the Lord with the fellowship of Gwinnett Bible Chapel and with the friends who knew and appreciated Bob. We are thankful for your support from those who have strengthened your heart and your hand as the Lord guides your life anew.
Our prayers are for all of you with our beloved Louise. May the memories of Bob add to appreciate “all the more as you see the day approaching” our Lord’s soon return. As we look forward to that, may your hearts be knit close; as the “love of every one of you all abounds toward each other”; strengthened with thanksgiving to our loving Lord in His wonderful gift of Salvation and the promise of 2 Thessalonians 1:3 and 3:13 through 15. May you stand fast in the sure knowledge of His promise given in I Thessalonians 4: 1 13 – 18. We rejoice in having ‘just’ a “sleeping place” before meeting again around the feet of the Lord Jesus Himself on that Glorious Day! With love, Norm & Rose

Dear Louise, Caroline and family
Sharon and I were shocked at the passing away of Bob “Absent from the body present with the Lord”.
Bob was truly a man who could think for himself. I will miss Bob as a good friend and the many discussions we had.
God bless
Paul and Sharon Derby

Oh Louise, what a shock when I opened Facebook to see the news. My heart goes out to you, Caroline and the family. My memories of Bob are of a quiet gentle man with a servants heart. He always seemed to have a smile for every one. I know you will miss him terribly. It has been many years, but friends are forever. I won’t be back to Atlanta until after the services, but know I will be praying for comfort and strength for you all today and in the coming days.
