I remember meeting Claus at Canyon High and immediately knew he was a kind and thoughtful guy. I remember visiting Claus, Cindy, and Baby Stefan in their mobile home and thinking what a kind and thoughtful husband and father he was, and how he looked always looked at Cindy with such love. I remember visiting Claus and Cindy in their home in Mint Canyon on the family property and thinking what a good guy Claus was and how he always looked at Cindy with such love. I remember seeing Claus and Cindy during summers at my parent's place in Northern California; Claus always watched Cindy with great love in his eyes. I remember visiting with Claus and Cindy in Grants Pass, Oregon, and again, it is the love between them I remember most. That kind of love will always live on in our hearts.

Claus was the kind of man who had an uncanny ability to know what someone needed to hear and then was gifted to share it in the most beneficial way. He instinctively knew when to be a boss, mentor or friend and handled each role with class. I’m so very thankful God allowed our paths to cross in life and am blessed that our relationship progressed to a wonderful friendship with him Cindy and the family. We will miss Claus terribly but I know we will see him again. So thankful for the hope we possess through Christ. Rest in the arms of Jesus my friend.

Claus was a world-class sweetie: he was kind, funny, open-hearted, sensible, creative, and had a certain solid presence that just felt good. I’ve known Claus since the 1970’s when he was dating my cousin Cindy. They were crazy in love and no one was surprised and everyone was thrilled when they got married. I remember once in Mint Canyon around that time when they visited us at the new house along with Grandma & Grandpa. We were in the sunken living room, playing music; Claus on guitar, Frank & I alternated on the organ, and Cindy, Carol and Joan were singing. Claus was good, and I recall his tact when he helped us stay on the beat by starting the metronome; our improvisational style tended to be a bit loose.
Although we kept in touch regularly, the last time we saw Cindy & Claus was last Spring; they invited Mario & me to stay with them at an inn in Big Sur. Still crazy in love, these two were great to hang out with; we swapped stories, caught up on all the doin’s, had some excellent meals together, and went for walks on the beach. I remember a lot of laughter. We will miss him so much, and our hearts are with Cindy and their sons, Brian & his family, and Stefan, and their extended family and much-loved friends. Our love and prayers are with you. We will all be together again soon, joining all those who have gone on ahead of us. Love, Katie & Mario

Clausman, as I would call him, was the most respected people I know. I miss my times with him, he was always the one I could count on. When he would call me at work he would start the conversation by saying "what it is" and my response was, what it shall be! Then Claus would proceed with good news or bad news, let me know what was on his mind, or just say hi. I and many others owe Claus a great deal for making life easier. I am so sorry for your loss. Bless you all.

Claus was a very good friend of mine. I went on several trips with him when he was a qualify control inspector with the Gas Company. Lots of good memories. He will be missed emensily.
RIP my friend.

I worked for Claus at SoCalGas; he was a friend and I knew he would always try to do the best for you. He will be truly missed. Rest In Peace.

I had the privilege of working with Claus at The Gas Company for many years as he was the FOM for the Needles District. I thoroughly enjoyed working for the man, he was the most intelligent person and most knowledgeable of station and pipeline operations in the company. On top of all that knowledge he had common sense and that was hard to find. He was my boss but I always considered him to be a good friend and always enjoyed spending time with him. I am deeply saddened that he didn't follow through with the plan that Jim Montgomery, Claus and I had made. We were all going to retire in 2008 but Claus decided not to. I truly wish he would have left the company and spent more time with his family and friends but he was so damn obligated to that job and didn't think they could survive with out him. Well now we will all have to do without his presence and he is one that will truly be missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing him. To all the family, you have our deepest sympathy and know that we all share your sadness with the loss of a one of a kind man. This was written with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes.
