After five years of struggling with colon cancer and dementia, Jerry Clark passed away on June 2, 2018, at the age of 69. While Jerry was born in Glendale, CA and raised in Burbank, CA by his parents, Clifford and Gertrude Clark, Jerry’s heart was always in Carson Valley, having been a Douglas County resident since 1974.
Jerry is survived by his high school sweetheart of 4 years and wife of 47 years, Teri Clark. Jerry raised two sons here in Carson Valley, Wade and Nicholas Clark. He was the kind of father who taught his boys how to camp, hunt, fish, play football, baseball, and whatever other sport they decided to pursue. If Jerry wasn’t coaching or assistant coaching, he was at every event cheering on his sons.
Jerry was the owner/technician of Clark Dental Lab for over 30 years and passed on the principled work ethics to his sons that had been passed on to him by his father.
Jerry loved tying flies and making the poles, woodworking, and was an Open Water PADI SCUBA instructor.
At Jerry’s request, no services will be held, rather he requested you send comfort to Teri and Wade by sending memories/stories whether the stories make them laugh or cry.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to “Reno Police Foundation” with “Dedicated to Hashimoto Widows and Orphans Fund” as the memo; The community Foundation of Western Nevada, 50 Washinton St. #300, Reno, NV 89503 as Jerry’s and Teri’s son, Sgt. Wade Clark works for The Reno Police Department or to Tahoe Youth and Family Services to continue the fight against substance abuse so other families might not lose a child to substance abuse as did the Clark family when they lost Nicholas.
Please keep Teri and the family in your thoughts and prayers. RIP Jerry... you will be missed by many.
UPDATE: Found a few fun fotos to share...
This is Jerry in 1st grade... so cotton pickin' cute! Then found this comment from 2008 from friend and classmate, Jeanne Barron Aikman: "Jerry W Clark received my birthday call tonight. A couple days off but oh well, I'll help prolong the pain of turning 60. Hey, are you next?? HA! He and Terri are in Tahoe and we talked a bit until we lost the connection. Whenever I think of him, I always remember him in 1st grade on the old Miller playground kicking his cowboy boot off with the ball. And it always went so high up. Man, he knew how to impress the girls at such an early age didn't he?"
Here's how I best remember Jerry, laughing with that great smile!

Heartbreaking news... Today received this email from fellow classmate, John Rocke:
Sad News. I don’t know if you heard of the passing of Pat Marro. I got a message from his niece that Pat had passed recently in a bout with cancer. He was to use an overused cliché, a great guy. I knew him for over 60 years from Jefferson. What a talented guy who just never made the big time in entertainment. He was just too “nice” in such a competitive field.
I don’t know the exact date of his passing but will find out soon.
Another one, another one.
Best to you always,
Pat and I had reconnected via Facebook and he told me of his cancer. He tried but was unable to attend our reunion last year.
We send our deepest condolences to Pat's family... He will be greatly missed.
