Sincere sympathy to all on Clark's passing. I was fortunate to work with Clark before he retired and always respected him. He was a good person.

I currently work for Peoria Public Schools in the maintenance department, hired in 1996, interviewed by Clark and Dan Witt. I always described Clark as a boss who loved working there and wanted you to enjoy it also as much as he did. He was always respectful, honest with you, and I never heard him raise his voice. He made a big impression on me by what kind of man he was and how he carried himself. Always enjoyed seeing him. I am glad I got to know him.
