Dale Clinton “Clint” Hardemon was born to Frank and Shirley Hardemon in Bessemer, Alabama. He grew up in West Blocton, Alabama. He has two sisters, Tammy and Wanda. Clint is survived by his wife, Lisa Lane Hardemon, and his son, Assistant Chief Clinton James “CJ” Hardemon.
Clint always said he joined the fire department to watch over his son, who had joined previously. In fact, every time CJ went on a fire call, he would see his dad standing around watching him. After joining the fire department, Clint put his heart and soul into it, learning all he could, and was promoted to lieutenant.
He was a good friend to many. He loved NASCAR racing and collecting and restoring guns. He was a proud and loving “Paw Paw” to his grandchildren, Cooper and Aisley Hardemon. He passed away several hours after a fire call when he suffered a fatal heart attack.
He is truly loved and missed by many.
