  2. Joanne,
    Our love to you and your family. May God strengthen you, your children and especially the grandchildren as they remember all the memories that you share.

  3. It is hard to say goodby to a best friend. Over the 40+ years we have known Jim from our time as little league managers through the years that we shared our kids/grandkids accomplishments, he was always the one we enjoyed sharing stories with. We shared many great times playing golf and spending evenings together at our Rancho Las Palmas condos.
    The last 15 months were difficult for the Clouse family but it did testify to the great love Jim and Joanne shared. He is now at peace and we will miss him greatly.

  4. I have many fond memories of our times working on Jim’s ’36 Ford, the events at Fuddruckers and especially the trip to Paso Robles for the car show. I’ll miss Jim and my sincere condolences to Joanne.

    I worked with Jim at McDonnell Douglas in Huntington Beach on the Space Station project. He was helpful, kind and professional. I always enjoyed talking with him, from discussing work to getting running tips from him. My sincere condolences to you all. I’m sure you have many wonderful memories of Jim.
