William Hunter Clemenceau

William Hunter Clemenceau of Dallas, TX left this world March 31, 2022, due to a sudden catastrophic illness.

He was 28 years old. Hunter was born in New Orleans, LA and grew up in Egypt, Azerbaijan and Katy, TX before graduating with a degree in Finance from LSU. He leaves behind his parents George and Cielle Clemenceau, brother Anderson Clemenceau, grandmother Ouida Rellstab, uncle Martin Muller, cousin Camille Tyra, and extended family members “Aunt” Cindy and “Uncle” Dave Berkey, grand-aunts Audrey Rubis and Gladys Cramer, grand-aunt and grand-uncle Mary and Bob Hammer, and countless friends and family that loved him.

 

Hunter was an excellent golfer and loved Bayern Munich soccer and LSU football. He lived a large life and got to see and do so many things. He sat on the Pyramids, cruised the Nile River in a felucca, played on an undefeated soccer team while in school at Cairo American College, camped in the desert of Egypt, swam in the Red Sea, saw Windsor Castle and the Tower of London, visited Disney Paris and the Eiffel Tower, went on a safari in Kenya and Tanzania and saw lions, hippos, rhinos, and leopards, glamped near Mt. Kilimanjaro and watched the elephants roam, walked on Table Mountain and drank wine in Cape Town, South Africa, panned for gold in New Zealand, skied in the French Alps, explored castles in Austria and Germany, fished the Zambezi River and was showered by the mists of Victoria Falls, saw acrobats and the Forbidden City in Beijing, walked on the Great Wall of China twice, visited the black sand beaches of Hawaii, hiked to the top of Pike’s Peak in Colorado, toured Knights Templar castles in Spain, ran a cross-county race in the Republic of Georgia, visited Moscow and New Delhi on school trips, played rugby in Dubai, threw stones into Cloud Catcher Canyon in the Caucasus Mountains, played in mud volcanoes near Baku, ate in a caravanserai in the old city of Baku, saw the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque and shopped the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul, waded in the hot spring waters of Pamukkale, Turkey, and had so many other adventures.

 

Hunter landed his ideal job in Dallas in May 2021 as a Financial Project Manager and had a promising career ahead. He was a registered organ donor, and his generosity has helped individuals in 3 states have a chance for longer and healthier lives.

 

The family would like to thank the medical staff in the Neuro-ICU at Medical City Plano Hospital who worked relentlessly for days to try to save Hunter, as well as the special friends who were by his side at the hospital until we arrived. A Celebration of Life is planned for a later date in Dallas.

 

Hunter loved dogs and, as the grandson of two World War II veterans, would want to help provide a service dog to those who served our country or to help save homeless or special-needs dogs. Donations honoring Hunter’s memory can be made to Patriot Paws (https://patriotpaws.org/donate2/) or to Best Friends Animal Society, where a fundraiser has been set up in Hunter’s memory (https://support.bestfriends.org/site/TR/PersonalFundraising/General?px=3743612&pg=personal&fr_id=1480).

What a lovely tribute to a life well lived. We have warm memories of the adventures we shared with Hunter, and join the many, many friends who are grieving his loss.
Touching the lives of others in such a positive way through organ donation is a true reflection of his heart and character.
Our thoughts, prayers and love are with Cielle, George and Anderson.

There are absolutely no words to convey my deepest sympathy

Cara Loveland says:

I have some of the best and greatest memories growing up as a third culture kid and Hunter was a big part of a lot of those. Our little close knit group of friends had so many adventures that I will treasure forever. Me and Hunter had a friendly rivalry between our two favorite German teams and even though Bayern Munich was a power house my little team would often beat them and we would have wonderful discussions and good natured ribbing when that happened. I never thought I would ever root for Bayern, and definitely never foresaw it would be for this reason, but a little part of me will forever have to be a Bayern supporter now. I’ll miss you, Hunter, hope you’re hitting nothing but hole-in-one’s now.

What a beautiful young man he was! Though his life was not long in years, it was full of experiences and adventure. Sincere condolences to his parents and all who loved him.

When I think of Hunter I think of grins and laughs. I remember meeting him when he and Cara were in the 3rd grade together. They bonded over being the youngest and smallest and went on to have a fast friendship until present time. So many CAC adventures, games and parties! I loved watching Hunter grow (a lot!) and mature into a fine young man. Nothing can take away the pain of losing a child but I hope the pain can be softened by all the friends who knew and loved him.

What an, adventurous, well-lived life he had! Our hearts go out to George and Cielle. We never had the pleasure of meeting Hunter; however, we knew what a special young man he was by the way Cielle and George’s face lit up every time they talked about that beautiful son of theirs.
Our deepest sympathies go out to you and all of those that he touched.

He lived his life with such energy and exuberance. It was fun to watch him grow and entertain those around him. He was a good friend and an even better son. He will give those angels in heaven a run for their money, that’s for sure!!
