He worked in Human Resources for American Can Company, S & W Fine Foods, Tri-Valley Growers, and Crown, Cork & Seal. He was a member of Geneva Presbyterian Church where he served as an Elder.
Clark lived his life with gusto and spread laughter and love to everyone he met. He will be greatly missed, but he leaves behind wonderful memories for those who loved him.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Kent Hufford and the staff of English Oaks who cared for him during the past 3 ½ years, the doctors and nurses of Memorial Hospital who helped us all transition to the end, and our church family, especially Phyllis Tom, Ruth Crabtree, and the Sedoo family, for their love and support.
A celebration of Clark's life will be held at Geneva Presbyterian Church on Saturday, January 28th at 11:00 am. Donations may be made to Geneva.
