Obituary for Eugene Cleu, Jr.

Eugene Leo Cleu, Jr., son of Eugene Leo Cleu, Sr. and Mabel G. Cleu. Husband to Cecilia, father to Stacy Cleu Boschetti (Dino) and Michael Cleu (Elisa Tobin). Grandfather to Danielle and Nicolle Boschetti. Predeceased by his sister, Paula Peterson. Also survived by his nephew, Dennis Winn and niece, Michelle Purdy.

Mike was born and raised in Oakland, California. He graduated from Oakland Technical High in January of 1953. He graduated from Saint Mary's College of California, Class of 1957. He was a member of the California Highway Patrol from May 22, 1961 to December 30, 1990. After retirement, he worked at Saint Mary's College from 1994 to 2002. He would have been married to Cecilia for 60 years this August.

Upon retiring from the CHP, "Motor Mike" was the state agency's senior motorcycle officer. It was estimated that he rode 750,000 miles, wore out 14 motorcycles and wrote between 30,000 to 40,000 tickets.

Mike enjoyed reading, riding his many motorcycles, watching the Oakland Raiders and Golden State Warriors. He was well loved in the community, even by the many people he handed out tickets to. Mike was always there with a kind heart to help those less fortunate.

Funeral services will be held at Saint Mary's College of California in the Chapel on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. Reception to follow on campus. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Saint Mary's Alumni Association.
