Brian F. Clemmey

January 7, 2020


Brian F. Clemmey, 60, of Taunton passed away unexpectedly, on January 7, 2020, at Morton Hospital. He was the husband of thirty-five years to Sharon (Tartaglino) Clemmey.

Brian was born in Taunton; he was the son of Francis W. Clemmey and the late Elizabeth A. (Medeiros) Clemmey. He was a graduate of Coyle & Cassidy High School (‘77) and then achieved his bachelor's in Education at Bridgewater State College. He was a dedicated educator of 18 years. His teaching career began at Taunton Catholic Middle School where he started the Butler Memorial basketball tournament. He later took his career to James L. Mulcahey Middle School from 2002-2010 and was most recently in his 9th year of teaching at John F. Parker Middle School.

His passion for educating extended outside of the classroom and onto the field. His coaching career spanned across many years and earned him many accomplishments. In his first year as head coach of the Taunton High Varsity football team he earned the Division 1 Coach of the Year title. He was also the founder of the Mass Dynamites where he first started coaching his daughters. He had many other accomplishments but most notable was being inducted into the Coyle & Cassidy High School Hall of Fame.

Outside of his life as a teacher and coach his main passion was spending time with his family. He enjoyed spending time at the beach and vacationing with family and friends. Most recently his favorite hobby was spending time with his granddaughter on their many different adventures. His passion for coaching soon transferred into his love for officiating. He spent many nights and weekends umpiring and refereeing slow pitch softball, basketball and football.

Survivors besides his wife and father are two daughters; Kaylee Clemmey of Taunton, Kirstee Clemmey and her fiancé Christian of New York, a granddaughter; Layla, one brother; Scott Clemmey and his wife Sharon of Taunton, two sisters; Robyn Clemmey-Lawrence of Taunton, and Sondra LaPlante and her husband Jayson of Taunton. He was the son-in-law of John Tartaglino and his wife Paula of Tiverton, RI and brother-in-law to the late Sandra Tartaglino of Tiverton, RI, Stephen Tartaglino of Somers, MT, Shelly Croft and her husband Alfred of Tiverton, RI, and Sally Charbonneau and her husband Brian of Taunton, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
