Roland (Rick) Clark, 92, of Colorado Springs, died February 6 at Pikes Peak Hospice. Born in 1920 in Kansas, he attended Wichita State University before serving in the U.S. Army Air Force in the South Pacific during WWII. After the war, he relocated to Southern California to work as a U.S. Postal Service superintendent. In 1978, he retired to Colorado, where he became a real estate agent and motel owner. Known by family and friends as kind and generous, Rick was always ready to lend a hand or lighten the day with a humorous story. He lived by the Golden Rule. Rick was an insatiable reader, avid follower of news and politics, and armchair agriculturalist. He will be greatly missed. Rick is survived by his devoted wife of 64 years, Audrey, and his daughter, Cathy Clark. He was preceded in death by his son, Craig. A private memorial service will be held in the spring. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Penrose St. Francis Hospital and Pikes Peak Hospice for their skilled and compassionate care.
