Richard Thomas Clark


Richard "Rich" Thomas Clark, age 87, of Quakertown, Pennsylvania, found peace on September 27, 2023, at Phoebe Richland Rehabilitation Center in Richlandtown, PA thanks to the efforts of a very caring and dedicated staff.

He was passionate about family, finance, and football. Known for his unwavering opinions, practical thinking, and meticulous planning, Rich enjoyed a long retirement.

He was the husband of Sue Clark, with whom he shared 60 years of marriage. Born in Dayton, Ohio, on March 27, 1936, he was the only son of Everett Clark and Dorothy Palmer Clark of Dayton, Ohio.

Richard grew up in Dayton, graduating from Fairview High School in 1953. He attended Purdue University and earned his bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering in 1957.

He served our country in the U.S. Army actively from 1959 to 1961, working as an engineer in Monmouth NJ with several well-known German rocket scientists from World War II. He continued to serve as a reservist until 1965.

After an honorable discharge, he began his career with Ohio Bell, later AT&T, retiring in 1988 as a Senior Engineering Manager, then residing in Kettering, Ohio.

He is survived by his wife Sue, son Thom (Coopersburg, PA), and son Tim (Dallas, TX), and daughter in laws Melissa Hill, and Kimberly Barney. His grandsons are Owen, Harrison and Benjamin Clark, all whom he was immensely proud of.

Cremation will be held privately. Contributions in his memory may be made to Phoebe Richlandtown Rehabilitation Facility.
