James W. Clear, 75

James W. Clear, age 75, passed away June 1, at his home in Ellsworth, Wis.

Jim was born Aug. 17, 1938, in Granada, Minn., to Wilbur and Velva (Anderson) Clear. The family moved frequently during his childhood, so he attended several schools. From 1955 to 1958, he was enlisted in the U.S. Army, a portion of which time he served in Korea.

He spent most of his life as a truck driver, employed by many different companies over the years, before becoming an owner-operator later in his career.

He was preceded in death by his son, Jimmy; his parents; and two brothers, Ben and John.

Survivors include his sister, Jean Heine, of Lewisville, Minn.; three stepchildren; one granddaughter; several step-grandchildren and great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews.

Private Interment will be at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis, Minn.
