Clemente Mejia, 58, entered into the arms of his Lord and Savior on Sunday, February 8, 2015 surrounded by his loving family. He was born on January 30, 1957 in Fresno, California.
In heaven Clemente joins his sister, who entered into rest this past February 4th, 2015. Surviving Clemente are his parents Clemente and Josephine Mejia of San Leandro, his loving wife of 25 years Felepa Mejia of Manteca, his children are Richard Clement Mejia of Mendocino and Manuel Loredo Moreno of Manteca. He was blessed with three grandchildren, Israel, Peter and River Mejia. Clemente leaves five siblings, Janie Vela of Hayward, Jessie Mejia of Hayward, Frances Marquez of Hayward, Mary Keates of Reno, NV, Sophie Rodriguez.
Clemente was a Manteca resident for over 25 years. He retired as a heavy machine operator for Waste Management of Livermore. Clemente was the highlight of any event; there was never a dull moment. In an instant he could captivate an entire audience with his comical personality. Clemente never met a stranger; he would make friends where ever he went, and cherished each and every relationship. He had the ability to open hearted give you advice, based on his own struggles. Clemente had music running through his veins; he played any percussion instrument like no other. He loved his church family. Christian Worship Center was his home, away from home. Clemente adored his family; his wife whom he lovingly called “Reyna” was the center of his life. He loved his children unconditionally and was a true hero to his son Manuel. Clemente will be remembered for his everlasting spirit, unbelievable love and of course, his music. He will be greatly missed.
