Lauren J. Clark passed away in the early hours of Friday, October 11, 2013 following a recent cancer diagnosis. He faced his illness with bravery and resolve and through his struggle he was always concerned about the needs of those caring for him.
Lauren was born in San Francisco, CA. January 31, 1932, the son of Lauren J. Clark and Margaret Clark. He grew up in Antioch, CA and graduated from Antioch High School in 1949. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy at the start of the Korean Conflict in 1950, receiving an honorable discharge in 1954. He moved to Reno in 1967 from Oroville, CA and was employed by the City of Sparks from 1974 to 1980. He was then employed by the City of Reno from 1980 to 1997 where he retired as an environmental control officer. Lauren is survived by the greatest love of his life, Kathleen (Pat), his children, John of Reno, Margaret Bostrom (Bob) of Reno, Frank (Vicky) of Reno, grandson Scott Lauren Clark, Amy Chamberlain, sister Sharon Jamieson (Doug) of Estacata, OR., and Pat's children and her grandchildren.
Lauren was a helpful and compassionate man. He will be dearly missed by his family and many friends. He was also a humble man with modest needs. One of his greatest pleasures was cheering on the Wolf Pack.
Lauren spent countless hours attending Nevada football, basketball, baseball and volleyball games. In keeping with his wishes to be remembered in a simple manner, a donation will be made in his name to the University of Nevada Athletic Department. Please remember Lauren as you support The Pack, and cheer on his behalf.
Lauren's family would like to thank Janet, Gabi and Heidi with Circle of Life Hospice, "saints in scrubs", whose dignified care and genuine concern for Lauren and his family was inspiring and astounding.
