WILMINGTON — Mark Hampton Clements, 60, loving husband, father of three, son and brother, unexpectedly passed away Monday, April 12, 2021.
Mark was born Oct. 28, 1960, in Jacksonville, Florida, to Doris Fay and Capt. Mick Clements. He grew up in Florida and moved to Wilmington, where he met his wife Kim when he was 23. He and Kim moved to Hampstead in their mid 20s when they had their first son. Shortly after in 1996, he started his business, Clements Marine Construction, which he proudly ran everyday from that day on.
Mark enjoyed and lived every day of his life to the fullest. He had a way of bringing light to every day. He was the life of every party. He was a good listener, sincere, warm, kind-hearted, patient, motivated, compassionate, encouraging, strong, loving and funny, so very funny. His favorite days were always filled with sunshine, family, lots of laughter, fishing, anything on the water or any type of adventure. He had a passion for the water, fishing, and a deep, deep love for any activity he could do that included his family. He loved his family fiercely. Even on his hard days, he brought joy to all of those he saw and met. His smile and his laugh were contagious. His ability to make you laugh, feel better and to make everyone feel welcome, special and seen is something that will be missed every day by each person he met in his life. He was the person you wanted to be around, always.
Mark is survived by his wife, Kim; three boys and their spouses, Daniel and Brandy Clements, Chris and Kayla Clements and Marky Clements; parents, Doris Fay and Capt. Mick Clements, two sisters and their spouses, K. Kay and Andrew King, Terri and Chris Klingenberger; and four grandchildren, Juliana Benson Clements, Victoria Clements, Travis Clements and Myra Clements, who will all miss everything about him until the day we see him again.
Visitation will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, April 17, at Wilmington Funeral Chapel. A memorial service will follow at 3 p.m.
