Ralph 'Clem' Pummell

Ralph “Clem” Pummell, 63, passed away peacefully Friday, Feb. 16, 2024 at Autumn Years Nursing Center in Sabina.

Clem was born Feb. 2, 1961 in Washington Court House to Ralph “Sam” Pummell and Dorthy Watson.

Clem was a 1979 graduate of Edward Lee McClain High School in Greenfield. He was a record-holding pitcher for McClain. He had a love for baseball, fishing, hunting and the Green Bay Packers. He worked at RCA for 25 years and ended his working career by being the right-hand man to his best friend, Bryan, for Lakeside Tree Service. He loved being outside, drinking a cold one and telling jokes, and he could tell a story of days gone by better than anyone. His loved ones find comfort knowing he is back to fishing with his buddies and hugging his mommy.

Clem was the father of Jennifer (Tim Mcfarland) Pummell, Justin Pummell, Wesley (Sabrina) Pummell and Wade Pummell; grandfather of Jenson, Makayla, Liberty, Kyler, Jaxon and Adilynn; brother of Richard (Sue) Watson, Robert Hester, Sue (Mitch) Hughes and Cindy (David) Stevens; and uncle to several nieces and nephews. Clem had a very close bond with his nephew, Richie Jr., with whom he had his everyday phone conversations about fishing, sports and local gossip. Also surviving are the wives of his late best friends, Esther and Lindsey, along with their children whom Clem absolutely adored. 

Along with his parents, Clem was preceded in death by his stepfather, Richard Watson; brother, Gary Wayne Watson; and best friends, David Mischal and Bryan Stapleton.

A special thank-you to the team at Autumn Years for not only caring for him, but loving him. 

In keeping with Clem’s wishes, cremation will take place. A celebration of life will take place at the convenience of the family. The Anderson-Ebright Funeral Home, Greenfield is serving the family.
