Support UNC Lineberger in memory of Harry Clark
Harry’s shining spirit and personality lit up every space he entered with an electric energy of joy and laughter. He was known by family and friends as the “hardest working man” because he gave all of himself to any task with extreme pride. He was known far and wide for his famous fluffy pancakes, tender grilled ribs and delicious lemonade! Harry really enjoyed fishing, classic muscle cars, playing cards, cutting wood, candle making and special creative projects. He was especially proud of creating “The Wall of Love” display of family photos. He loved history and wanted to become a history teacher, and if you ever heard one of his stories, you could say he became just that. He loved visiting family and friends and helping anyone who called on him. He was a dedicated man of action and did what he promised. He loved his family and his loyal dog, Beau. You couldn’t be in a room with “Shorty” without having a big smile put upon your face.
(Bet you’re smiling right now!)
We are all blessed to have known him.
Harry passed away of metastatic kidney cancer.
He is survived by his loving wife, Helen Mitchener Clark of 53 years, his two children, Jaconna and Bakari and his faithful dog, Beau.
