Warren F. Clark, of Brookfield, Ohio, entered eternal rest on Friday, September 2, 2022, while at home and under hospice care following a period of declining health. He was 80.
Warren was born January 16, 1942, at home in Brookfield, a son to Charles A. & Thelma (Evans) Clark.
He graduated in 1960 from Brookfield High School and shortly thereafter proposed to the gal of his dreams. On June 6, 1961, he exchanged vows with his high school sweetheart, the former Diane L. King, and together they held hands for the next 61 years.
A machinist by trade, he dedicated over 45 years to his profession, working for a number of local shops including: Ween, Taylor, Glunt Machine Shop, CCL, & Exal Corp. In addition, he had assisted Mr. John Madasz, Jr., with both the funeral home and ambulance business in Brookfield.
He was a member of the New Life Community Church, Vienna, Ohio, and was a former vice-president of the labor union while he worked at Ween.
In his spare time, Warren enjoyed hunting, fishing, and going to their camp on Ontario Lake, New York. He was quite the handyman, who also liked farming. He was a very hard worker and was never intimidated by any job before him. He could do anything and everything. Furthermore, he was a big history buff and respected the lessons taught by our ancestors. However, watching his grandkids play ball and spending time with his family is what he loved the most.
He is survived by: daughters, Anita Hawley, Amanda Clark-Smith, and Amy (Keith) Moffett, all of Brookfield; son, Brian (Jennifer) Clark, of Jamestown, Pennsylvania; grandchildren, Ken Hawley, Nick Hawley, Logan Scott, Morgan Scott, Mitchell Moffett, Dustin Moffett, Jacob Clark, & Matthew Clark; great-grandchildren, Arianne Richmond, Jaxton Hawley, & Colton Morgan; cousin, Ron Harris; sister-in-law, Bonnie Clark-Durbin; and many nieces & nephews.
Preceding him in death are his siblings, Verne Clark, Ralph Clark, & Doris Swenson; and sons-in-law, Lynn Hawley, III & Billy Ray Smith.
A memorial service will be scheduled and announced at a later date.
