Joseph "Joe" Clark

Formerly of Toms River

Joe Clark of Silver Spring, Maryland passed away peacefully at home on August 31.

Born in New York City, he was raised in the Bronx and Lyndhurst, New Jersey. After graduating from Lyndhurst High School, Joe joined the U.S. Army and served as a member of the U.S. occupation forces in Japan after World War II. Thanks to the G.I. Bill, Joe attended and graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University. He went on to work as a warehouse supervisor for General Motors in New Jersey for five decades; in addition he worked part-time as a salesman for Macy's in East Brunswick.

Joe Clark's passion for the Jersey Shore brought him together with the love of his life Geraldine Savrekait in Belmar during the summer of 1955. The couple shared their first date at the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park, where they saw Bing Crosby sing what would become their song, "True Love," during a viewing of the film "High Society." Several years after their wedding, the couple moved to Toms River to raise their two children, who graduated from St. Joseph's/Monsignor Donovan High School. Upon retiring, the couple moved south to live in Maryland and West Virginia, but returned to Toms River in 2007 to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary at the Old Time Tavern.

Joe Clark is survived by his son Joseph, daughter Carol Anne Clark Kelly, son-in-law Bob Kelly and grandsons Bobby and Jack. "We love you, too tight."

Relatives and friends are invited to a viewing at Anderson & Campbell Funeral Home at 703 Main Street in Toms River on Thursday, September 7 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

A funeral mass will be celebrated at St. Joseph's Church at 685 Hooper Ave., Toms River on Friday, September 8 at 10:00 a.m. Entombment will follow at St. Joseph's Cemetery.
