June 21, 1937February 19, 2021

Ronald D. Clark, 83, of Roanoke, Ind., passed away Friday, Feb. 19, 2021. After living with Multiple Sclerosis for over 40 years, Ron left his weary body for his eternal home. Born on June 21, 1937, Ron was a son of the late Howard and Dora (Roller) Clark of Zanesville, Ind. Ron worked at International Harvester until MS forced him onto permanent disability. In the mid-1960s, Ron and his twin brother, Don, built Fawn Forest, a 14-acre campground from swampland and woods. The campground still exists today in Angola, Ind., under new management. Ron and Mary Lou were married for over 61 years and spent their lives together in the Fort Wayne area. Ron was a devoted follower of Jesus Christ and he now resides in Heaven. Because of that, his family rejoices in knowing that he can see, hear, walk and run again. He is survived by his loving wife, Mary Lou; and children, Kimmerly Minniear and Jeff Clark; nine grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and siblings, Delores Fry, Eldon Clark, Don Clark, and Karan Clark. A private service will be held on Monday, Feb. 22, 2021. Family requests donations be made to Our Daily Bread Ministries : The family appreciates your prayers.

Mary Lou, Jeff, and Family,

We loved Ron - especially our Sunday morning talks in the coffee shop before church. He was always so happy, pleasant, and encouraging. We are praying for you and your entire family.

So sorry to hear about Ron, but know He is in heaven and one day we will all see him again.
We’ve been friends since 2nd grade and all through high school end then at Calvary Temple. After moving to Arizona it wad always great getting a call from Ron and just staying in touch.
I hope you continue those calls MaryLou...

Mary Lou, sharing in your sadness as I remember Ron. When I think of my parents, I can’t help think of how instrumental Ron was in our lives after my mother passed. It was an honor to know Ron. He was a good man and a great example of a life well lived. Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs to you and your precious family.
