Kenneth M. Clark, age 58, of Painted Post, passed away Friday evening, August 4, 2017 at home, surrounded by his brother Norman Clark, sister Donna Horton and special cousin Sharon Hobson.
He worked 34 years at Dresser Rand, but retired early due to illness. He fought a long battle with cancer for over 15 years. Before his illness, Ken loved to fish and hunt, and he loved his dogs, having several throughout his life time.
Ken was predeceased by parents Jack and Joyce A. (Ellison) Clark of Monterey, his brothers Joe Clark and Terry Clark. He is survived by sister Donna Horton of Addison and her son Jeremy Horton, brother Norman Clark with his children Gregory and Megan, Terry's girls Kelly Clark, Tiffany Farren and Rachel Wilson, Joe's sons Michael and Timothy, sister in law, Cheryl Clark. He is also survived by his uncle Rodger Clark of Caton, uncle Clifford and aunt Donna Ellison of Savona, aunt Sarah O'Rourke of Coopers Plains and several cousins, and one great nephew, Mason Horton.
It was Ken's wish to have a gathering in lieu of a funeral. Donna and Norm are having a celebration of his life on August 19, 2017 at Matt's Place (formerly Monterey Jacks) and invite all family and friends to join them from 1pm – 3pm. Anyone wishing to bring a dish to pass would be welcomed, but just coming to share memories will be a blessing. Ken's sense of humor and kind heart will be missed by all that knew him.
