Obituary for John "Jack" A. Clark

John A. �Jack� Clark, a lifelong resident of Highland Twp., passed away October 17, 2013 at the age of 79.

Born on June 12, 1934 to parents Eleanor (nee Middleton) and John Lyman Clark, Jack and his twin brother Jerry were born in the white family farmhouse on Middle Road in Highland Township. Jack and Jerry were raised with their brother Jim and sister Marilyn. Jack and Jerry remained living in the ancestral home on Middle Road throughout their lives.

Jack was proud of his 1957 Chevy which he drove to many of the local classic car shows. This summer, Jack and his Chevy attended at least 26 car shows--his weeks were booked with shows: Tuesdays at the Comeback Inn of Highland and Wednesdays at the Red Devil of Holly. Jack was a sports fan; he loved to watch sports, especially baseball, and enjoyed following the scores and lineups. Year round, Jack wore his Crossroads Village Huckleberry Railroad engineer�s hat everywhere--proudly, he considered himself a walking advertisement for the Village.

Prior to Jerry�s passing, it was rare to see one without the other. To those who encountered the pair, it was as obvious that Jack and Jerry were twins as it was that they were best friends.

Preceded in death by his brother Jim, twin brother Jerry, sister Marilyn (Robert) Salisbury, nephew John Salisbury, and niece Sharon Hughes.

In addition to his sister-in-law Mary Lou Clark, Jack is survived by his nieces and nephews Deborah (Ed) Pilarz, Robert Clark, Rachel (Jack) Clark-Swalla, Richard (Amy) Clark, nephew-in-law Ken Hughes, great-nieces and great-nephews Paige (Alex) Barson, Megan Pilarz, Stuart Pilarz, Clark Pilarz, Melissa Clark-Swalla, James Clark-Swalla, Brandon Clark-Swalla, Marcia Clark, Ricky Clark, dear friends Cliff and Fran Priestly and Steve Newman.

Funeral Service from Highland Congregational Church, 1605 N. Hickory Ridge Rd., Highland on Monday at 11 AM. Gathering to begin one hour prior. The Rev. Gary Evans to officiate. Burial West Highland Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to the church in Jack�s memory or to the American Heart Association.
