The ABANA Central Office would like to thank all those who attended the Bill Clemens Memorial on Tuesday, August 8th 2017 in New Columbia, PA. Bill’s family, friends, and community were honored by a grand Celebration of Life service. The Blacksmith Guild of Central Maryland provided an historical anvil and hammer for smiths to ‘Ring’ in honor of Bill’s dedication to our profession. He devoted many hours to support ABANA, local guilds and community functions – all for the love of blacksmithing.
It isn’t possible to put into words the importance of friendship and how much Bill meant to our smiths. He positively influenced our lives in so many ways and we will miss him with all of our hearts. Bill, thank you for your friendship, we will miss you forever and never forget all of the time we spent together.
