November 10, 1937 ~ August 6, 2020

Born in: Holland
Resided in: Torrance, CA

Clemens F. Meuleman, a 47-year resident of Torrance, California and Long Beach, California, passed away on Thursday August 6, 2020 in Rancho Palos Verdes, California at the age of 82.

Clemens was born in Amsterdam, Holland in 1937, to Father Clemens Franciscus Theodorus Johannes Meuleman, and Mother Magdalena Cornelia Borghmans. He was raised in a post World War II era, with many stories to tell of his early life, including being only seven years old watching American soldiers liberate his home town.

He served in the Dutch army in his early 20’s, gaining work experience in business, before setting his sights west. After immigrating to San Francisco, CA. in the early 1960’s, he found himself pursuing a career in the aviation industry, and later established his own business in aviation insurance. Clemens was an avid private pilot, sailor, and in later life found a tremendous joy in his passion for dancing.

Clemens will be remembered as a loving father and friend. He loved to travel and was a calm and adventurous spirit. He was the life of every dance floor. His sense of humor and laugh was felt in every room. His gentle nature and sweet smile will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved him.

Clemens is survived by his son, Clemens F. Meuleman III, daughters Margot and Claire Meuleman, his brother Frank, and sisters Brigitte, Suzanne, Magda, and Marcelle.

  1. candle 7On behalf of Wisteria Hospice, I want to express heartfelt condolences on the passing of Mr. Clemens Meuleman to Clemens Jr. and all the siblings, as well as the siblings of Mr. Clemen. Grateful that Ms. Bridgette of Florida was able to gather in family members via Face Time and pray the rosary as well as prayers shortly after his passing. May his soul rest in peace. Given these pandemic times, we remain in prayerful support with and for the family and trust in Mr. Clemens prayers through the Communion of Saints. As you begin this time of mourning and grieving under unusual conditions of the Pandemic, may y’all remember you are not alone and our services continue throughout this year of grieving as I serve as Spiritual Coordinator in this aspect of my chaplain ministry.
    Eternal rest unto him O Lord. Let Perpetual Light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

  2. candle 1In behalf of Tarrasa Manor Family, we want to express our deepest condolences to the Meuleman family. You will be missed by all of us our dear “Clems” and “Buddy” in the house.

  3. candle 4My condolences to the bereaved Mueleman family. Clemens is our “Big Buddy” in Tarrasa Manor. You will be truly missed… Till we meet again….

  4. Condolences to Clemens Jr. and Clemen’s family members. I worked with Clem at Associated Aviation Underwriters in the early 1970’s and thereafter when he was an aviation insurance broker. Clem was a skilled pilot and a professional, ethical insurance pro. But my best memories of Clem are related to his keen sense of humor, laser like ability to seek the truth, adventurous spirit and basic human decency. I am truly sorry that Clem has passed away, but I am thankful for his friendship and unforgettable wit.
