  • Notes 
    • “As the middle of eleven children, Clois learned early to take on family responsibilities. At age nine he had a paper route and sold newspapers on downtown Dallas street corners at the age of ten. The Depression hit and the family followed the strawberry and cotton harvests, occasionally settling one place long enough to enroll the children in school if other work was available. Educations was always encouraged, and Clois graduated from high school, Lewisville, Texas, in 1937. He served in the Navy during World War II as an electronics instructor and then used the GI Bill along with working at the state headquarters of the American Legion to complete his degree. He attended the University of Texas, graduating in 1949 with a degree in industrial engineering, the first in his family to get a college degree. They went to Ottawa, Ohio where both were employed by Sylvania Electric Products with stops at Shawnee and Dewey, Oklahoma with a short stint with Phillips Petroleum before returning to Rockdale in 1952 to work for Aluminum Company of America. Clois progressed from various industrial engineering positions to home office staff positions, management functions, and then into environmental management where he became instrumental in crafting environmental state policies and helping to draft legislation that impacted state and national environmental agencies. Clois worked 43 years for Alcoa before retiring at age 76 in 1995. Since retiring, he plays golf and spends time with family and friends. He is a family man and is always interested in the activities of the children and grandchildren. He is a Bible teacher and teaches adult classes at his church. He leads local marriage seminars and has become interested in genealogy, visiting many libraries and cemeteries in search of family history.”
