I was surprised and shocked to read of Clark's death; I always considered him "permanent," and, of course, in some sense, he is. Introduced to me by contractors 11 years ago as I was renovating this old farmhouse, we connected immediately. He understood the kind of rough wall of local stone I wanted behind the wood stove, helped me find a trove of a centuries-old rock pile out back, and worked with me to pull out and bring in the likely candidates. As he built the wall, he talked to his rocks, questioned their personality and suitability, discarded the rejects with sharp words and set the victors, all the while delighting all around him with his ongoing conversation. He insisted that I myself place the final stones, but the wall is his; his sensitivity to texture and size and color, his imagination, and the wild side of his spirit all are out to be seen, appreciated, and admired. When the time came for finding a hearth, I suggested a large piece of stone; so he took me off to J. C. Stone's "junk pile," where we selected a five-by-ten, quarry-side-out slice of local Heritage, which, it turned out, was the same rock I'd selected, polished of course, for counter-tops. He cut it to size and salvaged a mantelpiece out of one edge; four men spent the better part of a day successfully getting that one-ton piece into the house and lowered onto its specially constructed support. From my armchair facing the stone wall, and hearth, I live all year with Clark's work and mind. The final contribution in the house was his suggestion -- and installation, behind my armchair -- of asymmetrical stone shelves on the back side of a chimney that was exposed in enlarging the living room; the sense of humor in those shelves is all Clark's. At the conclusion of the whole process he presented me with one of his cleaned-up old bottles, still displayed, a fragile, delicate counterpart to his insertions of stone. Years later, as I realized that I could make a nice amphitheater out of the massive granite foundation stones removed when cement had replaced them in the renovation, I called on Clark again. He examined the site, wondered whether a farm building once had occupied it, warned that without proper drainage the stones would sink into the earth, and went to work excavating; in the process he uncovered great flat slabs of stone that indeed once had served as floor; then he saw to drainage, carefully arranged and placed the foundation stones, and, added his touch to the view out my back windows. His spirit remains, enlivens the house, and regularly brings admiration and smiles. Bill Weary, Newcastle

An Admired Classmate
To Clark's family,
I truly am saddened to know Clark has left this life and left a void in so many hearts. He was an honorable man and he was a very giving person even from the early years of school.
I attended Woodland Consolidated School and Clark and I were in the same class. He was very artistic and even the first and second grades he would draw things and they would be displayed on the walls.
He kept at his drawings and sketches and would draw for some of us classmates if we asked him too, and if he had the time to do it.I always admired Clarks ability to draw and to see things in his mind and then put them on paper for others to see. He was always willing to explain angles and his perspective as to why he drew a certain way. What a talented person he was.
I know Clark loved the Lord and was not afraid of facing his own mortality. Knowing this joyous news has made it easier to deal with Clarks passing. I've known him since first grade and then on through high school. I look forward to seeing him myself one day on the other side of heaven.
My deepest sympathies to you all,
God Bless You,

Memories of Clark
Offering my deepest and most sincere condolences on Clark’s passing, truly a sad and moving time. It’s always difficult losing a friend and especially so when that friend has been a part of ones life since childhood. Easy to recall with a smile on my face and a warm glow in my heart the many many good times spent playing basketball upstairs in the barn at our family’s farm. Struggling through adolescence as a young boy was quite difficult at times but made much easier and way more fun with Clark as a regular companion. Clark was well liked and respected as evidenced by the many evenings the “boys from Woodland” would ride around Caribou receiving a warm welcome from those whom paths we crossed. Clark touch the lives of many people in a positive way and will truly be deeply missed.

My deepest sympathies to Clark's sons, Louse and the rest of Clark's family. Clark was loved by many. I feel blessed to have been one of his many friends. Once of my treasured memories was when I lived in Damariscotta and we ran into each other when he lived in Topsham. He let me drive his dump truck. It was thrilling and stays one of my treasured memories. Rest in Peace Clark.
