In Memory Of Clem Mendicino
To our precious Father, Grandpop, Uncle and Friend we love you and will miss you. Thank you for everything you did to make
our lives a blessing in knowing you for so many years! You will forever be in our hearts.
Clement J Mendicino
1927 – 2010
Clem Mendicino was born on February 7, 1927 and passed away on March 1, 2010. He was a wonderful father, grandfather, husband and friend. He was committed to his
family above all and instilled values and morals deeply within them, which encouraged his children to always do their best. He instilled integrity, honesty and taught
all he met the value of hard work and commitment.
Clem was a patient man who possessed an unquenchable thirst and hunger for knowledge and should really have been a teacher, since he enjoyed teaching and helping others to reach
their full potential. There was never a crossword puzzle he wouldn’t attempt, a Jeopardy show he didn’t watch as well as his incessant singing of the ABC’s to his children and
grandchildren and drilling the names of the states and their respective capitals is indelibly written in all of their minds.
Clem also tried to learn Norwegian by listening to tapes borrowed from the library, so when he came to visit his daughter and grandchildren in Norway, he would be able to
understand a little of the language.
Clem served his country in the US Navy during WWII in which he then started his own photography business in Philadelphia. As a side job, he became a Good Humor
man and drove an ice cream truck through Philadelphia neighborhoods. He was a lifetime member of Lantana Lions Club and he served more than 50 years.
Clem was always available to help a friend, neighbor or stranger in need. He rarely said no, he was never afraid to go to a new place or venture out on a
limb to help another, in any capacity.
Clem will be missed by all that knew and loved him, but we have his memory and love that will live with us forever.
