Theodore C. Clements, a retired industrial engineer and resident of Falmouth, died September 30 from old age. He was 95.

Mr. Clements was born in Easton, Pennsylvania, to Alice Clark and Mahlon D. Clements. One of four sons, he lived the longest and was predeceased by Mahlon, who was known as Dick, Thomas and Donald Clements.

He graduated from Lafayette College in Easton with an industrial engineering degree after completing the US Navy V-12 Engineer program near the end of World War II. After the war he worked for Allis Chalmers Corporation for much of his career.

In 1960 he married Barbara J. Wanamaker and lived in northern New Jersey until 1974, when he relocated to Boston and subsequently to the Cape, living in Sandwich, Woods Hole and eventually Falmouth.

He was an active fellow at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Falmouth, holding positions as Social Action Committee chairman and president.

His interests included sailing, tennis, flying, conservation and recycling, running, and walking. He played on the Lafayette tennis team, held a private pilot license until 1992, took up running at 70 and completed the Falmouth Road Race more than 10 times. He was also passionate about donating blood, donating more than 20 gallons in his lifetime.

He leaves his former wife, Barbara Clements; his sons, Timothy, Douglas, Charles and Gregory; his grandchildren, Timothy, Corey, Courtney, Dylan, Camryn, Nolan and Delaney; and eight great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Falmouth, date pending.
