Clarke was a great person and friend. Worked with him at Enlow Fork Mine. His heart and love for his family was the only thing bigger than his personality. He was a very intelligent man who could always make you laugh. God bless him and his family.

A man that I looked up to and I could call a dear friend and a brother. His heart was big and taught me a lot about life. He put his heart and soul into Chartiers Lodge and Freemasonry. He was bigger than life itself. God has a special place in Heaven for him. I loved him and will miss him dearly.

I just talked with Clark on Thursday and as usual a pleasant and happy visit. Time well spent and I'm so grateful now that we had that visit. Always a gentleman and my memories go all the way back to when I was Marine Corps recruiter and he once thought he might join. Rest in Our Lord's Arms now my friend and soar with the Angels. Prayers sent.

Clark was an inspiration to everyone and especially me. He always had a smile on his face and an opinion that I frequently agreed with. He was positive, energetic and passionate. Clark served Chartiers Lodge #297 on the Mentor committee and the Wild Game Feast committee. I supported him when I could, but he was always there and always available to help, day or night. He also held an elected officer position, learned all the work necessary to advance and learned it with extreme precision. Clark was a born leader. Clark was a giant man with a soft side. I always enjoyed his stories of his family and especially his wife. You couldn’t pry him away from taking Sis out on a Friday night and if they couldn’t go out, he was staying home with her and that was that. I am proud to call Clark my friend and am grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know him. Rest in Peace Brother

I am extremely saddened to learn of Clark's passing. While we had very limited contact over the last years, I recall with a smile the many great times. It started with my first day underground at Enlow in 1991 when I was sent to work with/for him and was literally scared out of my boots. He turned out to be one of the nicest people at the mine and eventually invited me to lift and eat at Curinga's. It was wonderful to meet Sis and become part of the gang. I learned a ton from Clark, especially about mining and restoring old buildings. I loved debating issues with him. Eventually, we were involved in various projects, sort of fell out of favor with each other and lost touch. I had recently been thinking about reaching out to Clark to inquire about his possible interest in a local history group. It is sad to realize that that will not happen but I will focus my thoughts on all the good that he brought to so many.

Sis, Our Deepest Sympathy to you and your family. So saddened to hear of Clark's passing. He was one of a kind and possessed so many wonderful qualities. I will treasure our times spent with the "Enlow Breakfast Club" where Clark always had a good story to tell and have us all laughing when he did his CoCo imitations. He was much loved and admired by so many and we will all miss him dearly.

So sorry for your loss, Sis. Clark will be greatly missed! He always told me he took me under his wing when I started at Enlow in 1999. I enjoyed lifting weights with him at Curingas. So many laughs and memories that will stay with me for a long time. Rest In Peace Clark.

I'm very sorry for your loss. I'm a Cranmoor resident and Clark was so very kind and helpful. God bless you.

I knew Brother Clark when I occasionally delivered his mail years ago. We had sat in Lodge together on a few occasions, but he rarely attended back then. I asked him to join our Mentor Committee, he agreed, and he took the ball and ran with it. He obviously enjoyed his service, and made quite the first impression on our new members. Now as an elected officer, the loss of his leadership is a bitter pill to swallow for our Lodge. I had to smile when I saw his picture in his tuxedo. He shared with me on numerous occasions how he hated it! Personally, I'll miss his sense of humor and his storytelling. It was a privilege to call him Brother, and his giant heart will be sorely missed. My deepest sympathies to the family on your terrible loss. I pray for your peace and strength. Zeke Brenkus

Please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. I am also 32nd degree mason from Claysville Lodge #447. I've known Clark for the past 2yrs from visiting Chartiers Lodge and working on the Regional Team with him. His smile, sense of humor and welcoming personality were as large as he was. I will miss seeing him at future visits very much. All the best to the entire family of Clark.

Clark was one of the best human beings that I had the pleasure of knowing. Clark worked on a different shift than I did but I got to know him between shift changes. He always was in good spirits,humorous,easy going and a pleasure just to talk to. A star has gone from our world but God just added another angel. God bless his family, we will all miss him.

Patty came upon and shared this very sad news with me last night. Our deepest sympathy to Sis and the family. I had the pleasure of meeting Clark years ago as a coal miner. Working together on the same shift for 13+ years I also had the pleasure of many wonderful, spirited and philosophical conversations that I enjoyed and have cherished. A kind man with a heart bigger than him. Rest In Peace my friend, the world is a better place from your presence, as is everyone who had the pleasure of spending time you. Sis, you and your family are in our thoughts.

My deepest sympathy to Sis and family over the loss of Clark. I worked with Clark for many years. I respected his spiritual wholeness, his process of deep thinking and his problem solving ability. He came to my need numerous times. The favorite blessing he had was making everyone who was near him feel like they were close friends. He will be missed by many. Love you always and rest peacefully!
