GLEN R. CLARK Obituary
Glen R. Clark, 90, was called to his heavenly home March 19, 2014. Visitation will at 1 p.m. with services starting at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 23, at Langsford Funeral Home, Lee's Summit, Mo. Burial at Clear Fork Cemetery in Garden City, Mo., immediately following. Glen was born in East Lynne, Mo., on Sept. 26, 1923, to Frank and Cora Clark. He met the love of his life Elizabeth Ann (Betty) Mann in 1945 and married her the same year on Dec. 28, at Oak Hill Presbyterian Church in St. Louis, Mo. He and Betty were married over 66 years before her passing in 2012. Glen was a World War II veteran and very proud of serving in the Army Air Force as a T/Sergeant Flight Engineer. He flew over 50 missions in Europe, Africa and Middle East (EAME) and had the best stories of those years. Most of Glen's life was spent being the best Daddy that three little girls could ask for and providing for them and their Mother by becoming the #1 Nationwide Salesman for Montgomery Wards in the 1970's. He enjoyed baseball, fishing, golfing, the outdoors and taking care of his yard. Glen always put the well-being of others before himself and always showed his thankfulness for life itself. He had a beautiful smile and genuine demeanor. He was jovial, quick-witted and never knew a stranger. Glen was preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Cora Clark, his brothers, Jay C. Clark and Harold Frank Clark and his sisters, Vivian Clark and Doris Nadine Harkness. He is survived by his daughters, Sally Elizabeth Rowe, Karen Sue Wright and her husband Charles, and Christine Ruth Hanes. His pride and joy grandchildren, Kendrick, Corina, Allison and Michael, and his five great grandchildren, Desiree, Madison, Emma, Maxwell and Aaidyn also survive him. A very special thanks to his caretakers at The Villages of Jackson Creek Memory Care and Crossroads Hospice. Any donations may be made to Crossroads Hospice in memory of Daddy. Arr.: Langsford Funeral Home, 115 SW Third St., Lee's Summit, MO 64063 (816) 524-3700.
