No words can express how sorry I am! There is not enough room here to list all the wonderful memories we have made through the years. Annual trips to Possum Kingdom and our White Christmas dinners. I will miss his big bear hugs, stories, and laughs. Zona, Tim, Craig, I love y’all very much! -Sherri

I cannot believe that Mr. Clark, a mentor, a leader and family man is gone. He was such an important part of my life as well as the lives of my brothers; I still see him as a man that I want to mirror in life. Death is part of life but the world has lost a good and decent man. My thoughts are with his family but also with all of those who are grieving this loss.

Thank you Mr. Clark for being part of my life.

We send our deepest sympathies to your whole family for the loss of your dear "Bear". Robert was such a pleasant soul, gentleman and friend. I had the pleasure of working with him shuttling cars at Brink Fleet.
May you feel God's comfort and peace in the days ahead

Robert was a great friend, wonderful gentleman, and a true role model for all the young men whom he served as Boy Scout Leader. Our lives were blessed by his presence and example and he leaves a hole that will not be filled. Our love and prayers for Zona, Tim, Craig and those precious grandchildren.
