Madison – Robert L. Clark

It is with great sadness that we inform you that Bob Clark at age 79 has pulled his last pull, and it was a full pull; we were all there to see him exit the arena on December 7, 2020. Bob wasraised in Skowhegan by his parents Winnifred (Peggy) and Carroll Clark with his four siblings. He married Donna Clark in 1977 and lived over 40 years in Starks. Bob and Donna moved to Madison 4 years ago to enjoy retirement.

Bob enjoyed working outside and took great pride in maintaining the roads in Starks as the town road commissioner for many years. He owned and operated his own excavating business until hisretirement.

Bob was passionate about his hobby of antique tractor pulling with his John Deere 720. He was a long-time member of the Maine Antique Tractor Club serving as President from 2009-2014, earninghimself a lifetime membership.

Bob was very proud of his four daughters and two step-sons - Barbara Jordan and husband Mark, Pam Vaillancourt and partner Nate Richardson, Sheila Turcotte and husband Peter, Roberta Roy andhusband Marc, Howard Lynds and wife Jennifer, and Kevin Lynds and wife Wendy. Bob has 13 grandchildren – Wesley Jordan, Derik Jordan, Ethan Vaillancourt, Jessica Vaillancourt and partner Derek LaChance, Isaac Vaillancourt, Tanya Turcotte, Laura Coyne and husbandPatrick, Kim Roy and partner Todd Stevens, Spencer Lynds, Rachyl Nelson, Steven Nelson, Alex Shuster and husband Zach, and Mitchell Lynds and partner Maggie Pierce. He was very proud of his great granddaughter Aaliyah Jordan and his soon-to-be grandson babyLaChance. He also leaves behind his brother William Clark and wife Harriet, the mother of his four daughters, Ann Cody, sisters-in-law Arlene Cabriel, Diane Young, and brothers-in-law Eddie Brackett and Wayne Brackett.

Bob was pre-deceased by his parents, his sister Carolyn Dawson, two brothers, Clayton Clark and Reggie Clark, his mother-in-law, Marie Brackett, as well as his good friend Cliff Quimby.

The family wishes to thank the Hospice Team for all their guidance thus enabling us to care for Bob at home the past few months. We have been blessed to have had this time.

A celebration of a life well lived will be held at a later date.

To Donna and all of Bob’s family we send our prayers.
Bob was a classmate and such a wonderful guy. He will be missed by many. We missed out on all of the mini class gathering this past summer due to the pandemic....we enjoyed those gathering so
much and Bob will be missed if and when we can gather again.

Sending our love and prayers to Bob's family. We have many wonderful memories of Bob when we visited the Maine Antique Tractor Club events. We will always remember the big smile he always had when he was pulling his John Deere. He will be missed.

Condolences to Donna and to all of Bobs large family. He will be greatly missed.
Bob was friend to all he met. I enjoyed our chats together
after he retired he’d often come to Starks to visit, I was honored
that he’d come by to see how we were.

Bob was nearly four years older than I; he and his brothers looked like big boys to me. I was in the first grade but only five years old and being close neighbors, rode the same bus. He was always nice to us little girls and never picked on us.
Interesting that my husband, Carroll's middle name was Lee and he also liked tractors, antique machinery; all of the "old iron". We went to many pulls and shows around Leesburg, Fl.
It saddens me to hear of Bob's passing, but I'll bet he's looking at an old Deere, leaning back and laughing a big Clark laugh that I remember.
