He was the son of the late Albert Nickelberry and the late Alberta Nickelberry. The once extravagant, impeccably-dressed Memphis, Tennessee native was especially proud of his accomplishment of parlaying his fascination with trucks into a rewarding transportation industry career and successful entrepreneurial venture, spanning more than 5 decades.

Besides his wife and parents, Clem was also preceded in death by his step-mother Carrie Nickelberry; sisters, Clemmie Williams and Louise Jones; brothers Edward Nickelberry and Odell Nickerberry.

Additional survivors to treasure his memory include 2 sons his firstborn named after his beloved brother Odell and his youngest, DeAnthony Nickelberry; 1 granddaughter; a wide circle of additional family and friends, including Lynn (Skip) Rentie, Gregory (Chandra) Nickerberry and Shirley (Clarence) Wright, two nieces and a nephew to whom he was a generous father figure.

Visitation will be held Friday, November 3, 2017 from 5 PM to 6:30 PM and the funeral service will be held Saturday, November 4, 2017 at 11:00 AM, both in the chapel of Roller-Chenal Funeral Home, with the Rev.

Clem will be lovingly remembered for many years to come.
