    Judge James Clement dies at 74
    ~ By Michael Puente, Post-Tribune staff writer
    Lake Superior Court Judge James Clement, who served on the bench
    for 27 years before retiring in January 2001, died Wednesday
    evening at a local hospital, surrounded by most of his immediate
    family. Mr. Clement, who suffered from congestive heart failure,
    was 74. During his career, Mr. Clement built a reputation for
    being a hard worker who balanced the law while being a devout
    Christian. "Jim Clement was the model of hard working. He was in
    very early on Mondays, and left late on Fridays. He really set a
    standard. He had a profound effect on me and other people around
    here," said Lake Superior Court Judge Richard Maroc, who became a
    judge six years after Mr. Clement. Mr. Clement presided over 1,300
    jury trials, including 15 death penalty cases. Gary native Robert
    Rucker, now an associate justice with the Indiana Supreme Court,
    often went before Mr. Clement. "I had the honor of appearing
    before him many times," Rucker said. "He was highly respected.
    ...I am going to miss his wise counsel." James Clement Jr. said
    what made his father a good judge also made him a good parent.
    "He did not make quick judgments or decisions. It was always well
    thought out," Clement Jr. said. "He always told me to be on time,
    be prepared and be a gentleman." Some cases, such as deciding
    whether to sentence a defendant to death, often weighed heavily
    on the mind of Mr. Clement, his son said. Public defender Noah
    Holcomb, who practiced before Mr. Clement for about 20 years,
    believes Mr. Clement's deep religious faith assisted him on the
    bench, especially when he had to sentence a defendant to death,
    which he did at least three times. It pained him to make some
    very tough decisions on the lefe of people. ...But as a judge, he
    knew to dispense a harsh sentence if the case called for it,"
    Holcomb said. "His religious faith helped him to impose those
    sentences." Clement Jr. wished his father could have had more time
    to enjoy retirement. After leaving the bench in January 2001,
    Mr. Clement worked part-time for his son's law practice. A 1945
    graduate of Horace Mann High School in Gary, Mr. Clement went
    on to graduate from the University of Miami in 1952 and the
    Valparaiso University Law School in 1956.
