John “Jack” C. Clouse, 77, of N12649 Old Highway 27, Osseo, passed away Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2009, at Luther Hospital in Eau Claire, following a sudden illness.


John Charles, son of Louis and Estella (Lindle) Clouse, was born Oct. 31, 1931, in Auburndale.  He attended school in Auburndale until his freshmen year, when his family moved to Taylor, where he graduated from high school.

In addition to farming most of his life, John hauled bulk milk for Stewart Redville Dairy out of Greenwood.  He had been a member of the Greenwood Lions Club, Registered Holstein Association, and instrumental with the Taylor Old Fashion Days Tractor Pull. Through the years he enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening and rebuilding tractors.

He was preceded in death by daughters Deborah Clouse, in 1968 and Barbara Klatt in 2003.
