James Ephraim Clark – July 25, 2017

James Ephraim Clark

James Ephraim Clark was born June 30, 1933, in Reserve, New Mexico to William Jackson Clark and Lula Mae (Joy) Clark. He passed away July 25, 2017, at 84 years old in Susanville, Calif. at Banner Lassen Medical Center.

He had three brothers Charles, John Lloyd and Willis Jackson, and one sister Charlene (Snyder) Ford. In 1950, James moved from New Mexico to Susanville at 17. He was inducted into the Army on April 8, 1953, and served as a light infantryman in Korea before being honorably discharged March 5, 1955.

James married Patsy Lea LeDou January 14, 1961. They had two children, son William Thad and daughter Angela Lucille. He was a timber faller most of his life and owned a small sawmill with Willis, and loved to cut his own firewood, supplying him and his family plenty of warmth for the cold winters in Janesville.

He loved the outdoors, spending time as a hunter and trapper, raising wild game birds and gardening, both flowers and vegetables. He planted many fruit trees and loved to try the heirloom varieties in all of his gardening.

Very much a family man, he loved and cherished all of his family and friends.

James was preceded in death by his father William, his mother Mae, two brothers Charles and John and son William.

James is survived by his wife Patsy, daughter Angela, grandsons Robert James and Justin Guy, granddaughter Kayleen, great grandsons Jacob and Joshua, brother Willis, sister Charlene and numerous nieces and nephews.

Graveside services will be held for James on Saturday, Aug. 26 at 11 am at the Lassen Cemetery on Chestnut St in Susanville, Calif., officiated by Bob Summerville. The family will be gathering at the Monticola Club at 140 South Lassen St in Susanville Ca. after the services. Everyone is welcome.

Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
