Clarke, Arthur L. - Quincy  
QUINCY -- Arthur Leonard Clark, HMC U.S. Navy (Ret.), died Friday (Feb. 6, 2015) in Watsonville, Calif., with his family at his bedside. He was 89 years old. Born in Quincy, "Art," as he was affectionately known, graduated from Quincy High School in 1944. He completed boot camp and advanced training in Farragut, Idaho, and served his country in the Navy with a career that saw him perform duties during World War II and the Korean War, and in Vietnam. He worked at the Oakland (Calif.) Naval Hospital at the conclusion of World War II and as hospital corpsman stationed with the Marine Corps. He provided medical aid aboard many different hospital ships, transporting injured soldiers from Vietnam to California, and was also stationed at the naval medical facilities in Monterey, Hawaii, Alaska, and Port Hueneme. He retired in 1971 at the naval shipyard in Vallejo, Calif., earning the rank of chief hospital corpsman, after 29 years of service to our injured soldiers. After his retirement from the Navy, Art was employed for 10 years as a warehouseman with the Santa Cruz, Calif., city schools. He was very civic-minded and a member of many clubs, including the Elks Lodge in Quincy, VFW, American Legion, and the Fleet Reserve Association Branch 178. Art was a proud plank owner of the U.S. Navy Memorial and supported the Wounded Warrior Project. Family and friends will always have fond memories of Art's gregarious personality and his ability to tell jokes with a mere mention of a topic or punch line. Art was passionate about his road trips to Reno and Lake Tahoe, Nev., and those stories will forever be cherished. He loved sports, and enjoyed following the St. Louis Cardinals baseball club and the San Francisco 49ers. Art was a talented craftsman and handyman. He enjoyed working on projects that others appreciated or needed assistance in completing. He enjoyed the annual fishing trips to Quincy and Missouri to fish with his brother and friends, and was usually accompanied by his best friend and wife, Lydia. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Lydia Clarke of Aptos, Calif.; his son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Corry Clarke of Aptos; and his son, Mark Clarke of Hawaii and his three children. Art also leaves many loving nieces, nephews, their families, and many more extended family and friends. One of five children, he was preceded in death by his four siblings. SERVICES: 11 a.m. Mass of Resurrection on Monday, March 2, in the Holy Cross Church, 126 High St., Santa Cruz, Calif., with military honors rendered after the Mass.
