Richard Allen Clarke, 65, was called to help the angels gather cows on Sunday, May 8, 2016. His father Verle Elfred Clarke, his mother Billie Mae Clarke, his brothers William Tally (Bill) and Perry Wayne were waiting for him with his horse all saddled up.

He has left his wife Marla Jean 'Kid'; his daughter Cheryl Lee and her husband Kenny Anderson; his son Ted Michael and his wife Cindy; his grandkids Lana Renee Anderson and Wyatt Preston Clarke and great grandson Levi Michael Clarke back at headquarters to oversee day to day operations; his sisters Karen and her husband Frank Batte, Suzie and Floyd Stone; sister-in-law Peggy Landers; along with numerous aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Rick was born August 12, 1950, to Elfred and Billie Clarke in Alamogordo, N.M. He graduated (or was asked to leave) Alamogordo High School in 1969. He married the love of his life Marla Jean Bednorz Dec. 18, 1970. They quickly settled into their lives together with the birth of their daughter in 1971 and son in 1974.
