Many nieces and nephews, Diane Oliver (Frank), Kim Pace (Rich), Mark Clark, Scott Clark (Cynthia), Renea DiLorenzo (Mark), Donald Jr. Clark (Eva), Carol Clark III (Skip) (Ronee), Kyle Clark, Kelly Freed (Dan), Penny Pelletier (John), Connie Kelley. Also surviving Jack is his daughter Lisa Klein (Stephen) and her children Jamie, Judith, Sebastian & Alystair of Monte Rio California. Jack was born and raised in Conklin before moving to Vestal. He was a World War II veteran stationed in Austria. After returning home he worked at the Tri-Clties Airport where he and his father purchased the Airline Limousine Service, where he worked with many of his brothers. After he sold the company he continued working at the airport until he retired in his early 70's. Jack enjoyed spending many of his summers at the St, Lawrence with family and friends. Christmas was a special time when all the family would gather at the Clark home on the Vestal Pkwy where many laughs and memories were made. He welcomed friends all year long and until his brother Doc's move to California they would spend mornings together drinking coffee and reminiscing. He enjoyed going to the Roaring Fork back in the day and then the Outback and the Red Lobster where he made many dear friends. A special thank you, and much gratitude to his niece Penny Pelletier for looking out and taking care of Jack before his failing health, lead to his transition to Ideal Nursing Home where after a short adjustment he made some very special friends Pat and Bill and truly loved all the workers who cared for him. The Family would like to give much thanks to the entire staff of the Ideal Nursing Home for the outstanding care and compassion you gave to Jack. Funeral services will be Monday 11:00 AM at the Leon Pucedo Funeral Home, Inc. 1905 Watson Blvd. Endicott, with the Rev. Daniel Ling, officiating. Entombment will follow in Vestal Hills Memorial Park. The family will receive friends at the Pucedo Funeral Home on Sunday from 5 to 7 PM. In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Animal Care Council, 131 Washington Ave, Endicott, NY 13760.
