We became friends when I started daily walks by his house. Steve could talk to you about any subject. I was always amazed at what an interesting life he had and how very smart he was. His ability to get a deal was legendary and enjoyed talking about his latest bargains.
He was a welcomed fixture around the neighborhood and will be sorely missed.

He was scary quiet, I was just the teenage girl who lived across the street that he frequently found in the middle of his living room with his own children. Needless to say I was super well behaved when Mr Clark got home from work. He was always very kind but you definitely paid attention when he spoke. Eventually he got used to me being around and over a couple of summers of boat trips, we begged him to let me tag along on ... he taught me how to water ski. That was the awesomest, it is my favorite memory of Steve, it was 38 years ago and I remember those lessons like it was yesterday..... I pray you had a beautiful birthday in Heaven sir, Melissa Read Kisner ✝️🌹💜
