His life was dedicated to his wife, children, and grandchildren never missing an event, performance, or activity.  He loved coaching, catching, rebounding and being the first person to receive a defeated or triumphant hug. His best smile and twinkle in his eyes was when he saw his grandchildren.  "So Anyways" - Clark's signature line.

“So very sorry for your loss.
Clark was such a great guy, we have run into him so many times after meeting him a few years back! He was a friend of my brother, who has passed away, and always talked so highly of him, which made me feel so good. He made a difference in my life, his kind words, his humor.
Will so miss running into him and Brenda.
Please know he made a difference in so many lives. RIP Clark”

“Brenda, Adam & Jill, We were so sorry to hear that Clark had died. He was a "bigger than life" person, always having a smile and ability to talk to anyone. He was such an important part of Cari's and others' lives when he coached them for several years in basketball. He taught them that teamwork was essential and discipline was crucial if you were going to succeed in life. These traits, I'm positive, the girls took with them long after they left the court. Your home was Cari's second home, and the Totino pizzas the girls went through every game night were so important to them as well as the important lessons that were taught. I am sure your faith will get you through these trying days. God took a good one.”
