Kenneth V. Clark lost his battle to cancer Sept. 28, 2018. He was born Nov. 20, 1951 to Roberta Clark and Vern Bevis.
Ken was raised and lived most of his live in Omak, Wash. He loved to fish and hunt with his friends, children and grandchildren.
Ken had a passion for music, he played guitar, drums and the harmonica. He took a lot of pride in his music studio at home, where he recorded his own music, recorded with friends and family members.
Ken was a man of many talents, he was a mechanic, carpenter, scaler and musician, there wasn’t anything he couldn’t figure out. If you wanted to DIY it, and needed expertise, a very articulate description was handed out at no charge.
Kenny was kind, passionate, loving, sincere and a patient man; all the qualities that a man could have in his life, and without fail, he displayed them daily. No matter what the situation was, he always had a way of overcoming matters in a positive light.
There are no faults this wonderful man had, his kind smile and helpful manner to anyone in need. And, to his friends and family who knew him well, his sense of humor… and let’s not forget the corny jokes accompanied by his infectious laughter… we all came to love.
Phillip and Barb Quintasket, long-time friends of Kenny brought many good times and memories; the blues festivals, concerts, the band jams with all his good friends.
Kenny is survived by his wife of 30 years, Elaine George Clark; sister, Linda Clark; daughters, Shelly Clark, Carlene McDowell (significant other Shawn Myrick), Jamie Smith, and Adrianne Smith; sons, Shawn Clark, Reese Clark (significant other, Diane), Kenneth Clark, Kevin Clark, and Jeremy Smith (daughter-in-law, Alisha); grandkids, Stevie, Asley, Damian, Isaac, Curtis, Mick, Alias, Courtney, Haley, Shaelyn, Kaden, Jamin, Evan, Ivan, Jesse, James, Edward, Kaylee, Lil Joe, Baby Bear, Myah and Bowen; and great-grandkids, Lorraine and Nick.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, and Robert “BC” Clark; Gary Clark; sisters, Carol Clark and Mary Clark; and baby Jeremy.
Services were held Oct. 1, 2018.
There are not enough words to identify all the goodness Kenny had in him. To his wife, Elaine, sister, Linda, and all his children and grandchildren, know that he would not want to see you hurt and with the pain you are experiencing. Be strong for his sake, for all the love he had for all of you. Keep your family close and goodness in your heart.
We will miss him dearly, here on earth, but he will always be with us in spirit. Remember the good times and his memories. Cherish!!
