Jeffrey Clark Obituary
Jeffrey T. Clark Saratoga Springs, NY - Jeffrey T. Clark peacefully passed away on May 22, 2014. He and his wife Laura enjoyed forty-four years of adventure together, including service and life in faraway places like Germany, the Marshall Islands and Georgia. With three children and three grandchildren, he will be sorely missed by those he left behind. A warrior all of his life, he served his country for twenty two years in the United States Army, serving first in the Big Red One in Vietnam, and then in the First Military Intelligence Battalion in Germany. His daughters will remember polishing his service boots, water skiing around Kwajalein Island in the Pacific and showing Bagheera the bunny at the Saratoga County Fair. His wife will remember traveling across country while first married, visiting art museums in Europe and going on various trail running, snow shoeing and kayaking expeditions in the Saratoga area. He was exceptionally community service oriented, serving as a Judge for the Town of Northumberland, helping St. Peter’s Parish and the Special Olympics and perhaps his proudest achievement was serving as the President of the Saratoga Springs Downtown Business Association. While his time was far too short, he leaves behind a rich legacy of family, friends and colleagues who are enriched by his life. He has left behind his much loved wife, Laura and three children; Julie Suarez, Jill Woolley and Jacky Gilchrist. He was blessed with three sons-in-law, Darren Suarez, Robert Woolley and Grady Gilchrist, along with three grandchildren Elena and Emilia Suarez and Bryce Arlene Woolley. He leaves behind Walter J. Clark, his father from Cobleskill and brothers John and Robert Clark and his sister Mary Swartz. Relatives and friends may call from 4 to 7pm Tuesday May 27, 2014 at the Burke Funeral Home, 628 North Broadway 584-5373. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 9:30am Wednesday in the Church of St. Peter, 241 Broadway. Burial with military honors will follow at 11am at the Gerald BH Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery. Memorials may be made in Jeff’s name to the Wounded Warrior Project, PO Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675 to honor his memory. Online remembrances may be made at burkefuneralhome.com.
