Tribute

Earl R. Clark earned his angel wings on July 16, 2022 at the age of 91 in Boise, Idaho

Earl was born October 12, 1931 in Boise Idaho to Charles and Eva Clark.

He lived his entire life in the Boise Valley, excluding a few years as a child, when his family moved to Stibnite, Idaho, where his Father worked in the mines.  Upon the family returning to Boise, Earl completed his education at Boise High School in 1949

From 1951 – 1954 Earl served in the US Air Force in engineering as a staff sergeant during the Korean War, receiving an honorable discharge on November 8, 1954.   Upon his return back to Boise, Earl began his lifelong career with the US Bureau of Reclamation as an Engineer.

Earl met and married the love of his life, Yvonne L. Rodabaugh November 1st 1958.  They had two children, Chris Clark, 1959 and Colleen Clark Brown, 1961. Although Earl and Yvonne eventually divorced in 1978, they remained true friends, enjoying many outings and trips together and sharing in the joy of many grandchildren.

Earl lived life to the fullest.  He was a master wood worker, which all of his friends and family have received and enjoyed gifts of his wood crafts.  He bowled almost his entire life on many leagues.  The one constant was the Bureau of Reclamation bowling league, which he was honored later in life by being inducted into the bowling hall of fame.  In his earlier years, he spent time hunting and fishing with friends and family.

During his life, he made so many lifelong friends, which he cherished each and every one of them.  Whenever visiting with him, he loved to tell stories of his escapades and especially his time living in Stibnite. 

Earl was proceeded in death by his Father, Charles R. Clark Sr., his Mother, Eva Dolph Clark and his brother, Charles R. Clark, Jr.

He will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him.
