Life Story / Obituary
Roger William Clouse, age 87 of Walker, passed away January 18, 2020. He was born September 14, 1932 in Grand Rapids. He was preceded in death by parents William Merritt Clouse and Alice Pelon Perkins Clouse, and sister, Ruth Clouse Williams. He attended Grand Rapids Community College, Aquinas College and Michigan State University. He married Nancy Luttenton in 1963 when they were teachers at Harrison Park Junior High. They enjoyed sharing and supporting each others many interests: travel, deer hunting, art, classic cars, skiing, biking, long walks, as well as keeping up with current events.
Roger is survived by his loving wife, Nancy (nee Luttenton) and his treasured daughter Susan Clouse Randall (Chad) and two grandchildren, Cole Randall and Morgan Randall; brother-in-law Dr. Charles and Mary Luttenton, and many nieces and nephews.
He proudly served in the Army Security Agency (ASA) of the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict (1952-1955), followed by 4 years with the Air Force Reserves. He attributed his loyalty to all military services to his own positive experience as an army cryptographer. He had a strong patriotic spirit.
Please join us for a celebration of life on Sunday, February 16 from 1-4 PM (taps will be performed at 3 PM) at the American Legion Boat and Canoe Club, 401 North Park Street NE in Grand Rapids where light appetizers and beverages will be served.
