CLARKE, JAMES ROWDY James Rowdy Clarke, 36 years old, passed away Saturday, December 3, 2005. Jimmy was a property manager for Crown Pacific Group, his family's company. He was born on July 16, 1969 in Van Nuys, Calif., but lived all of his life in San Diego County. He was a devoted and loving son, brother and uncle. His adored niece, Alli, was a priority in his life and he spent many days taking her to movies or on walks in a shared spirit of family togetherness. Jimmy will be remembered with deep devotion by his life-long friends. He loved the impromptu evening poker game or the camaraderie of attending Charger games together. His closest friend, Eddie Sanchez, said Jimmy's hallmark was, "doing all the wrong things at the right time." His outgoing and friendly personality impressed everyone who knew him and everyone who was fortunate to have known him was enriched by his personal charisma and joyful personality. He is survived by his sisters, Deborah and Shani; his mother, Diane; his niece, Alli, and his father, James. He is also survived by his grandmother, Frances; his great-grandmother, Dora and many great-aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by a brother, Robert, in 1995. He was loved unconditionally by family and friends and will live in their hearts forever. Services will include a Viewing from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, December 9th and a Funeral Service at Noon on Saturday, December 10th. Both will be held at El Camino Memorial Park Chapel, 5600 Carroll Canyon Road, (858) 453-2121. Please sign the guest book at obituaries.uniontrib.com
