1947 Ron 2022

Ron Norman Clark

December 16, 1947 — March 1, 2022

Ronald Norman Clark was a loving father, grandfather, brother, coworker, and friend. He left this world on March 1, 2022 at the age of 74 due to complications from multiple health issues.

Ron was born to Cassius and Esther Clark on December 16, 1947 in Elmira, New York. After graduating from Cyprus High School in 1966, he joined the United States Air Force where he achieved the rank of Sergeant.

Before leaving the Air Force with an Honorable Discharge, he married Brenda Ard and together they had six children: Don, Randy, Rhonda, Jonathan, Jesse, and Jodi.

Ron had a love of cars and a long career working on automobile transmissions. He tested and worked on cutting edge technology in various automotive factories around the world. His work took him to various positions in Utah, Illinois, Tennessee, Nebraska and even Saudi Arabia. After his retirement, he moved back to Utah to be with his children and grandchildren.

Ron was very proud to be a veteran. He enjoyed coin collecting, shooting his guns, surfing the internet, and cooking food so spicy that only he could eat it. He was a bit of a “homebody” and liked his independence but was always up for a family get together to go camping, shooting, or just have a nice meal together.

Ron passed away peacefully surrounded by his family, just the way he always wanted. He was preceded in death, and now joyfully reunited with his daughter Rhonda and son Randy; as well as his parents.

He is survived by his children Don (Marinda), Jonathan (Tammy), Jesse (Linda), Jodi Woodruff (Brad); ex-wife Brenda Price; 14 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. Also survived by his brother David (Janet); and sisters Renee Garlick (Mikol) and Sherrill Chino; as well as many nieces, and nephews.
