Bob Clemons: 1926-2018


The boating world lost a longtime boater, businessman and industry great; Robert L. “Bob” Clemons, 92, of Catawba Island, passed away on October 8, 2018. Clemons was the founder of Clemons Boats, Inc., which he started in 1966 and continued as owner until his retirement in 1992. The business he founded continues his legacy more than 50 years later, still under family management.

Clemons previously served as the president of Catawba Island Chamber of Commerce and as the commander of the Port Clinton Power Squadrons. In the late 70s, he served as an officer on the Lake Erie Marine Trades Boat Show Committee.
