Sorry for your loss. Your Dad was a very kind man. He'll be missed by many.
Condolences to the family.
We need more people like Allen, Norma and the Clark family in this world. Many of my greatest childhood and adult memories revolve around this family and I am greatly appreciative of that. Brian is someone I have been lucky enough to consider as one of my best friends ever since I was in late elementary, and that designation remains to this day. Allen and Norma always welcomed me to their farm, and my spouse and children have been lucky enough to also spend time and make memories on the farm. The Clark family is the epitome of what family should be, welcoming, close-knit, and fun to be around. This holds true for not only Allen, Norma, and Brian, but also the family members that I have also considered friends for many years, through Brian, such as Allen Jr., Diane, and her husband Brad, and their son Curt. Thanks for always including my family and I in your lives.
Sorry for your loss, Thoughts and prayers for family and friends.
Deb and Diane- sorry to hear about you're loss.. know i am thinking of you in the hard time in you're life.
My son Jared was warmly embraced by the Clark family when he was in grade school and spent many hours with them. It was his second home and I know his favorite memories revolve around them and the farm. I have never known finer people. They were rich in love and shared it generously.
Uncle Whitty he always had a smile when we talked, he made sure my mom had some morel mushrooms so when I come home i'd have some. Many good memories on the farm, Prayers for all the family, he will be a great man missed, whether dad, grandpa, great grandpa, friend or uncle. I talked to him not long ago. Many fond memories.
Diane and family, Thinking of you as you cope with the loss of your father--I know he meant so very much to you and, I'm sure, appreciated all you did for him. Praying for peace in your hearts.
My condolences to the family on your loss. May your memories help you through your grieving 🙏🏻

ALLEN CLARK was the love of my sister Norma. They shared good memories together, laughter was in their life with their children: Allen Lynn, Debra, Diane, Linda, & Brian and all of their spouses and their children. Grandchildren they all adored. They were very private and enjoyed their family Clark farm together. They will be remembered by us and those who knew them and thought well of their good and kind feelings towards others. God Bless The Family and all who knew them.
Janet & Marvin Hansen and our children and our family.
