Jack Clark

John J. Clark, “Jack”, age 76, of New Port Richey, passed away December 13, 2016 under the care of Gulfside Hospice while surrounded by his loving family.  He was born to John J. Clark and Clair Dillon on November 8, 1940 in Kearny, NJ.  Jack served proudly in the National Guard.  He came to Florida in 1999 after retiring from his position as a Manufacturing comptroller.

An avid traveler, gardener and pool player for the APA league, Jack’s real and abiding passion were for his family and friends. Jack was known for his entertaining storytelling, his memorable laugh and his generosity. Everyone seemed to know him everywhere he went because of his welcoming nature, natural warmth and charisma.  His optimism and happiness made him a wonderful person to spend time with. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend.

Aside from his parents, Jack is preceded in death by his brother, Harry Joseph Clark.  He is survived by his beloved wife of 47 years, Patricia; his son, John J. Clark; his daughter, Susan Montgomery (Jason); his niece, Lauren Ross; his granddaughters, Olivia and Kaitlyn Montgomery; his sister-in-law Joanne Clark; and many more loving family members and dear friends.

    Uncle Jack I will always treasure your smile, welcoming nature and the openness with which you greeted us all. I enjoyed your company as a child growing up with Susan and John like I was their sister in your home. I will carry you forward in my heart.
