SABATTUS: David Henry Clark, 81, of Sabattus peacefully passed away on Monday August 24, 2020 at home, after a long illness.

He was born in Malden, MA on February 14, 1939 the son of the late James A Clark and Gladys (Nichols) Clark of Kittery, ME.

From the time he was a youngster in Kittery, he was taught and enjoyed being in service to others. A leader in the Sea Scouts, he taught boatmanship, knots and coastal living to youngsters and was also a member of the DeMolay. As an adult, he was never happier than when sailing the coast with his best-friend and wife Marcia, or spending a weekend working with her at the Mt Washington Weather station. His other love was the woods. He enjoyed learning about and managing his “Clark Woods” as a family-based woodland to be enjoyed by many generations. Some activities he found most joyous were the yearly trips pulling a trailer full of Christmas-tree seekers into the “back 40” to find their “perfect” tree while sharing hot cocoa and taking the gang from the Methodist church into the woods to cut greenery to make wreaths for the annual Christmas Fair.

The Lisbon Methodist Church was another beloved place for David. He was a member of the “Wednesday Crew” fixing and restoring the church. He would spend hours at home steaming wood to be bent around the beautiful, fully restored stained-glass windows or painting the pipes and restoring them for the organ and refinishing the majestic front doors to the church. Always enjoying a laugh or three at the donut and coffee break, he found great friendship from his Wednesday Crew and missed them greatly. His impish demeanor and striking blue eyes will be sorely missed.

He is survived by his children; Tracy Gosselin and husband Robert (Lisbon), Deborah Clark (Sabattus); Steven Murchie and wife Michelle (Maryland); and Michael Clark (Lisbon Falls) He also leaves behind his grandchildren: Lorra Carney, Amanda Holden, Justin Hartung, David Holland, and Maverick Clark along with his great-grandchildren: Jade Connor, Kadence Holden, Ryen Hartung, Ava Hartung and Karson Holland. He was predeceased by his first wife, Barbara (Haggett) Clark, best-friend and wife Marcia (Littlefield) Clark, granddaughter Sandra Gosselin.

Dave and Marcia we neighbors at the lake. We shared many meals together, boat rides and nights sitting around the campfire telling stories.

Always enjoyed visiting Dave and Marcia at their home. Enjoyed all the tractor rides and the many walks to find that perfect Christmas tree.
So many wonderful memories with such wonderful friends.

David was a very special person who will be especially missed. He trained me to service oil burners and heating equipment and helped me get my own license. He was a perfectionist in how he did his work. He became tired of doing the paper work of self employment, so he worked for a short time with my Brother-in-law and I, before getting the job that he was much better suited for at Brunswick Coal, as Service Manager and we loved the stories he would tell us in the office between jobs or first thing in the morning or last at days end. I did not visit as often as I should have because the last time I did left me in tears to see him degrading so. Rest in Peace!
