Ray Lawrence Clark, Jr. Age 89

Passed away peacefully at the Minneapolis Veterans Hospital Palliative Care Center at 15:30 on Thursday, June 6, 2013 of multiple myeloma, cancer of the blood and bone marrow, caused by ionizing radiation exposure received in WWII when he was a weather observer at Tachikawa Air Force Base immediately following the dropping of atomic bombs in Japan. Ray’s earlier symptoms of blood disease were treated in 1989 by removal of his spleen at the University of Minnesota Hospital. Ray comprehended love to his last breath and beyond. As a list-maker he had a generous agenda and with great foresight, patience, and determination, Ray was able to fulfill major goals in the final weeks and days of his life.
