Jonathan Wayne Clark
Jonathan Wayne Clark, at 63, completed his life mission here on earth Thursday, May 22, 2014, surrounded by his family. He was under hospice care at the Fargo VA Health Care System in Fargo.
Jon was born to Marilyn and the late Dr. D. D. Clark on August 5th, 1950. He attended Cooperstown High School where he enjoyed scouting, football, wild times hanging out with his friends, and sometimes even drag racing a neighboring town's fastest car.
Jon graduated from North Dakota State School of Science with a degree in electronics. He served stateside in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam Conflict. He worked various jobs out of ND throughout the USA, most recently employed at the Cooperstown Medical Center as maintenance engineer, until his health started to decline.
He will be sadly missed by family and friends whom affectionately referred to him as "Tuba" or "Doc." He was a very genuine and humble person. He had opinions but often times did not share them. He will be remembered for his love of jumping rope, Ford Mustangs and lionel trains. He attended many car shows over the years with his Mustangs. Jon loved music and DJ'ed around the area hauling his turntable around using vinyl records in the 70's. People often commented Jon could fix almost anything.
Survived by his mother, Marilyn, Cooperstown, sister, Mary Beth (Zane Rud) of Albertville, MN, brother David (Margie) Mitilonian, Virginia, and Tim (Tam) of Turtle Lake, ND. Nieces and nephews Sarah Clark, Grand Forks, Jarrod Widiger, Drayton, Melissa Clark Moorhead MN and Dustin (Brooke) Clark and his great niece Sutton Claire Clark, Park Rapids, MN. He also leaves behind a lot of caring relatives and friends.
His father, Dr. D. D. Clark, grandparents, Kenneth and Neva Hanson, Hannaford, ND and Dave and Margret Clark of Onaga, Kansas, preceded him in death.
The family ask that you stop by and tell stories from 9:30 till 11:00 am, Monday, July 14, 1014 in the Trinity Lutheran Church, Cooperstown, ND. A Celebration of the Life of Jon will be Monday, July 14, 2014 at 11:00 am in the Trinity Lutheran Church, Cooperstown, ND.
