Chris T. Clark
Chris T. Clark (1955–2020) passed away suddenly 9 August 2020 in La Crosse, WI. He was the son of Theron and Lois Clark (both passed away). Chris grew up in the San Francisco area (father was Solano County Airport Director) and graduated from Fairfield CA HS (1973) and Solano College CA. His parents retired to La Crosse and Chris and brother Barry eventually followed. Chris was a positive, welcoming person who lived a full life available to the smart and witty. He had many lifelong friends. He had a heart of gold.
He was a self-employed contractor. He loved carpentry, was a true craftsman, worked on many historic homes, and could build anything (wood, stone, brick, etc).
Chris was a lifelong music aficionado and liked telling of the famous Bay Area venues/musicians he attended (Fillmore West, Winterland, Pepperland, Warfield Theatre, Oakland Coliseum, Marin Veterans Auditorium, Alameda County Fairgrounds, Mabuhay Gardens, Candlestick Park, Concord Pavillion,…) He enjoyed what music the midwest provided also.
Chris enjoyed driving his cars (restored 1972 MGB, Nissan 370Z), motorcycles (Kawasaki 900Z, 1000Z) and jet skis. Weekend car shows, back road touring, Road America. He and brother Lane’s month-long motorcycle trip (La Crosse – Colorado – San Francisco – Yosemite – Death Valley – CA/NV 6 – Tonopah – Hoover Dam – Albuquerque – La Crosse) .
Brothers Lane Clark and Barry Clark (and his daughters Kelly, Rachel, Samantha) survive. “Chris was our beloved little brother”. The brothers thank Chris’ special friend Jessie Stanek for her love and support.
