Clem was a talented carpenter and during his 40 years in the industry, was involved in the construction of many homes and businesses in the Hinton area. He enjoyed sharing his knowledge and worked closely with his brothers, son, son in law, and many nephews over the years. Clem loved sports of every kind and was an avid Montreal Canadiens Hockey Fan. In his younger days he loved to camp, hunt, quad, ski doo, and generally spend time with his large, extended Michaud family. In his middle years, he could often be found watching his grandchildren, acting as an anchor point for their blanket tent in the living room, while he watched his sports on TV. In his later years, he loved spending time in his Filipino Food Store and enjoyed supporting the Hinton and area Filipino community.
