We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Respect of Life Funeral Home
Clement Lee Wind, age 61, went home to be with his Savior on May 22, 2021. Born August 11, 1959, to Clement Liebfried and Dorothy Wind in Houston, Texas. Clement lived his entire life in the Houston area where, as a young man, he met his wife Kathy, married in 1982, and where they raised their family. He was an exceptional husband and father who not only cared for his family, but also cared for his neighbors and friends by lending a helping hand.
Ambitious and eager to provide for his family, Clement used his knowledge of engineering and craftsmanship in metalworking over his 40-year career as a machinist. Clement was a proud machinist and entrepreneur; you could find him on any given day working and tinkering around the house. Riding the waves of the oil and gas industry gave Clement the opportunity to pursue other ventures, such as being sole proprietor of a machine shop, building cake stands, and a firewood business to help each of his children work their way through college and graduate debt free.
A humble man, beloved by all, Clement’s greatest legacy was his faith. After studying his Bible, in 1982, Clement placed his faith in Christ. Following this decision, he became a member of Greenwood Village Baptist Church serving Christ through the children’s programs and as a deacon and church leader. Clement was a very active church member and ensured that his children were taught the Bible.
Clement is preceded in death by his father, Clement Liebfried Wind. He leaves cherished memories with his loving wife of 38 ½ years, Kathy Wind; daughter, Rebecca Gallardo and husband Rudy; daughter, Stephanie Blasdel and husband James; son, Daniel Wind and wife Jojo; son, Jonathan Wind and wife Helen; grandchildren, Rose, Owen, Daniel Jr., and Claire; his mother, Dorothy Wind; and sisters Gayle Shearer and Theresa Wind.
Family and friends are invited to attend a visitation on Thursday, May 27, 10-11am, with services to follow at Greenwood Village Baptist Church, 20300 Cypresswood Drive, Humble, TX. There will be a graveside service at 2pm at Brookside Memorial Park, 13747 Eastex Freeway, Houston, TX 77039
