Clinton Bertrand "Clint" Nunez
May 29, 1943 - March 16, 2010
Clinton Bertrand Nunez, or as his friends knew him by "Clint", age 66, of Apple Valley, CA left to be with the Lord in the early morning hours of March 16, 2010. He had suffered with the complications of multiple sclerosis (MS) since being diagnosed with the disease in 1992.
He was born in Chicago, IL on May 29, 1943 and has lived in Southern California since 1953; Victorville, CA from 1981 and Apple Valley, CA since 1999.
Always the lawman, he entered law enforcement as a police officer with the Hawthorne Police Department in 1964. He was called into the Army as a CID Investigator from 1967 to 1969. On his return from Vietnam, Clint settled in the Palos Verdes Police Department where he medically retired as a Sergeant in 1979. After he left police work he became an investigator for the Department of Defense where he was forced to retire in 1993 as a result of MS.
Clint was a Life Member of the California Peace Officers Association; L.A. County Peace Office Association; National Rifle Association and the National Association of Federal Employees.
Mr. Nunez was very active up to a few years ago in the Victorville and Apple Valley Chambers of Commerce. He was a Charter member and past president of Wuzz Fuzz International, Inc.
Clint is survived by his best friend and wife Georgiana Nunez; a cousin Jane Schaller of Carlsbad, CA; close friend and former college roommate John Strottner and his wife Katherine of Anaheim, CA; and close friend, caretaker and buddy Chuck Utgard and his wife Kristy of Apple Valley, CA; as well as many, many other friends and co-workers.
Mr. Nunez, at times, well, could be stubborn. This last year there were two things that he was adamant about: First he was not about to eat much "Hospital" food, thus his wife brought food to him almost daily. The second point was that Clint did not wish to have a service. Years ago he planned for cremation and interment at Sunset Hills in Apple Valley. Our fond memories of Clint and his life are ours to keep: God's speed Clint, there is no more pain my friend. We'll see you again.
