[Andy Anderson, director of U.S. Rep. Al Swift's Bellingham office, said he spoke to Clement less than a half-hour before he collapsed, reportedly while dancing with his new daughter-in-law. Anderson said Clement had a history of heart trouble. Clement, whose 64th birthday would have been Tuesday, and Swift were good friends and collaborators in numerous Democratic election campaigns in the 1960s and 1970s, Anderson said. Former Democratic state Sen. Barney Goltz called Clement "a great person" with "good political insights." "He cared a lot about people," Goltz said. Clement was a former chairman of the Whatcom County Democratic Central Committee, a long-time member of the Whatcom County Planning Commission, and former chairman of the Lake Whatcom Watershed Advisory Committee. He also was instrumental in developing Whatcom County's Home Rule charter in the 1970s.][From a thirst for books that couldn't be quenched to a laugh that began in his toes, Bill Clement was remembered Friday as "loyal, caring, outrageous." More than 200 people gathered at Central Lutheran Church to honor the popular figure and hear several friends revisit their memories of Clement. They ranged from his role as strategist for local Democrats to project director at Western Washington University; from adviser to the state on social programs to boss, husband and father. Clement died Saturday at a country club near Seattle while dancing with his son Scott's bride at the couple's wedding reception. He was 63. U. S. Rep. Al Swift, D-Bellingham told several anecdotes about a man he described as "a broad-gauged guy with a fine mind" who helped his fellow political activist "plot the demise of the Whatcom county Republican Party." Many a night that scheming took place in the San Juan Room of the old Bellingham Hotel, where Swift said some of the best ideas took shape "somewhere between the beginning of the first drink and the end of the fourth." The Congressman told several yarns: How Clement the politician cut off a ponderous speaker by declaring that a motion to adjourn had succeeded, when it had not; how he accurately predicted a meat-buying "strike" by price-conscious shoppers during the years his parents ran a Bellingham grocery. But "the good anecdotes, I'll never tell," Swift said. " One of the things I learned from him was 'trust your instincts,' " Swift said. "Bill was phenomenal that way; he had an uncanny ability to assimilate information and synthesize it. He had a feeling for the pulse of the community that was phenomenal" - especially in his years working at his parents' market, which he used as his "community database", Swift said. Calling Clement "loyal, caring, outrageous," Swift said "there's no reason to feel bad for Bill. We're just feeling sorry for ourselves. That's all right, for a while." Looking ahead to his own demise, while harkening back to their San Juan Room days, Swift said, "I see Bill now, sitting on cracked black leather in the corner, nursing a bourbon and soda and thinking of some outrageous remark to lay me low when I walk through the door." Chuck Ensign, an organizational psychologist from Portland, Ore., described Clement as "a combination of realist and romantic." " I always felt comfortable to be with him," said Ensign, whom Clement once hired to work at the Bureau for Faculty Research he administered at Western. "And when I examined that, I knew it was because I was in the presence of a generous soul." Ensign said that "even now, the ideas he spawned are rumbling through bureaucracies throughout the state." Longtime Western administrator and professor Sam Kelly shared those same perceptions, saying he harbored "memories of courtesy" and "memories of accomplishment" for a man who was "impatient when knowledge couldn't be applied." Among Clement's legacies, Kelly said, are a "model of cooperation" between Western and the state Department of Social and Health Services that has left a "strong mark" on the state's social service system, in part by helping to create "improved mechanisms" for delivering social services and creating networks to meet social needs. Woven through that, Kelly said, was Clement's "passion for social justice." Clement's longtime friend, William B. Pope of Olympia, recalled their Bellingham days, when Clement sold crabs at his family's market for 50 cents apiece, and "three for a dollar on weekends;" when he had the first deli in Bellingham, selling everything from chocolate-covered ants and grasshoppers to rattlesnake meat. Referring to Clement's voracious appetite for the written word, Pope said, "he's the only person I ever knew who returned from a trip packed in paper." But for all of his love of books, telling stories and travels, -- "a person in the middle of what's going on" - Clement was "always ready to help a friend. His family and his extended family were his greatest love." While "his time was cut short," Pope said, "there's much of him with us now." "You left too soon. No chance for planning, no chance for preparations," Pope said. " But you lived well and left behind jobs well done, a community well-served and a family who loves you dearly."
