Clark Lindsay
Christlieb, who lived to make others laugh and enjoy life as much as he did, joined his heavenly family July 26, 2014. He bravely fought melanoma and set a courageous example for all to follow. A longtime resident of Houston, Oak Ridge North and Missouri City, Clark was born Feb. 27, 1930, in St. Paul, MN. He served in the U.S. Navy and graduated from the University of Minnesota with a BBA in 1956. He spent 30 years as one of Hollywood Vassarette's top salesmen, in Minnesota, the WV-KY-OH region, and Texas and adjacent states after moving to Houston with his wife Olga and sons Isaac and Frank in 1961. He was the epitome of a hard worker and a devoted father and grandfather, and made friends everywhere. He was a charter member of the Missouri City area's "Old Geezers Coffee Club," including Ronnie McCall and several other buddies, most of whom Clark has now reunited with. Clark was preceded in death by parents Frank and Alma Christlieb and wife Olga.
Survivors include sons Isaac and wife Phyllis of Conroe, and Frank and wife Kay of Arlington; grandchildren Lauren Christlieb of Conroe, Jennifer Welch of Spring, and Will and Lindsay Christlieb of Arlington; and dear friend and business colleague Akemi Inks of Missouri City. Service will be at 1:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 1, at Oakland Cemetery in Hutchinson, MN. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cancer Research Institute (cancerresearch.org) or other .
