Born at Simcoe, Ontario on 28 February 1874, son of Stephen Clement and Eleanor Dixon (1841-1931), he established Clement Pharmacy in Brandon in 1901. He also built the Clement Block, a commercial building, with his brother. He was active on local organizations as a member of the Brandon Board of Trade, Manitoba Pharmaceutical Association (President, 1922-1924), First Methodist Church, Provincial Exhibition Board, Good Roads Association, Brandon Shooting Club, and Brandon Golf and Country Club. He was also active in politics, running unsuccessfully for Brandon Mayor against Harry Cater in 1928, and for a seat in the Manitoba Legislature against George Dinsdale in 1932. He died at Brandon on 14 November 1938 and was buried in the Brandon Cemetery.
