David E. Clark Obituary
BRATTLEBORO, VT - David Erik Clark, 72, of Brattleboro, Vermont, passed away suddenly of natural causes at home on December 12, 2016. He was born in Brattleboro, Vermont on January 23, 1944, the son of John Aaron and Ruth Emma (Gahn) Clark (both deceased).

He attended Guilford schools until the eighth grade, and graduated from Brattleboro High School in 1962. He attended the University of Vermont for a year before entering the United States Army and serving in Europe during the Vietnam War. It was while deployed for the U.S. Army, stationed in Erlangen (north of Nurnberg), Germany, where he met his future wife, Elise Theresia (Kuchenreuther) Clark.

David married Elise in Nurnberg in 1969, and they moved back to Brattleboro to start a family in 1970, where David lived until his death.

David was a rural mail carrier for the United States Postal Service for over 20 years. He loved the people he worked with and the customers he served.

His passions were antique firearms (particularly muzzle loaders, which he recreated and built, and attending weekend shoots), fly fishing and history, and spending time with his family and friends.

He was predeceased by his wife, Elise, and his sister, Celia Clark.

He leaves daughters Teresa K. Vicent of Massachusetts and Melissa A. Clark of California, son John C. Clark of Brattleboro, aunt and uncle Greta and William Shores of Bernardston, Massachussetts, and many Clark relatives in Guilford.

MEMORIAL SERVICE: A memorial service will be held at the Guilford Community Church, located at 38 Church Drive, Guilford, Vermont, on Sunday, December 18, 2016 at 2 pm. Burial will be private at the convenience of family.

Memorial contributions may be made in David's name to Rescue Inc. of Brattleboro or the Guilford (VT) Volunteer Fire Department.
