Johnnie Ralph Clark, Sr., age 66, beloved father, brother, uncle and grandfather passed away peacefully at home on March 26, 2022.
Johnnie was born October 8th, 1955 in Mesa, Arizona to Earl Eugene Clark, Sr. and Doris Naomi Clark. Johnnie worked for the family business, Earl Clark Roofing, Inc. from the time he could hold a hammer. He and his brother, Paul Clark, became the new owners after the passing of his father, Earl Eugene Clark. He spent the rest of his life dedicated to the family business. He loved roofing and mastered all aspects of the trade. He worked his heart out, rain or shine, even during his time on chemo, which earned him the nickname “Superman.” He was the one to get down on the floor and wrestle with the kids and always had a joke to tell. Perhaps his most endearing quality was his unconditional love. He always said “I love you.” Johnnie was fun-loving and loved a good time; perhaps his favorite pastime was hitting jackpots at Casino Arizona.
Johnnie will be missed by his surviving sister, Betty Jean Springs, his brother, Paul Clark and his children, Linda Bury, Johnnie Ralph Clark, Jr., Kevin Clark and Nicholas Clark. He was preceded in death by his parents, Earl Eugene Clark, Sr. and Doris Naomi Clark and his brother, Earl Eugene Clark, Jr.
Godspeed Dad, Grandpa and Brother. We know the angels have welcomed you with open arms.
