SUBLETTE - Don Clark, 85, of Sublette passed away Jan. 19, 2021 at home surrounded by family and loving friends, and his faithful cat “Charlie.”
Mass of Christian Burial at Our Lady of Perpetual Help and committal service at St. Mary's Cemetery, Sublette will be private. Rev. Randy Fronek will officiate. Pallbearers will be Bryan, Bob and Jason Williams, Bob Stewart, John Kehoe and Skip Miller. Wasmer Funeral Home is privileged to assist the family.
Don was born April 28, 1935 in Sublette to Raymond Aubrey and Valeria Catherine (Kellen) Clark.
In Don’s life, he was lucky enough to have two families, his biological family and his car family. He held both families close to his heart, and they made his life complete.
Survivors include two sisters, Cora (Ron) Williams of Yorkville and Mary (Butch) Jones of West Brooklyn; three nephews, Bryan Williams, Jason Williams and Bob Williams; five nieces, Linda (Williams) Hernandez, Marjorie (Williams) Duerr, Jennifer (Jones) Huinker, Rachael (Jones) Wilson, and Elizabeth (Jones) Burgner; nine great-nephews; 10 great-nieces; one great- nephew and two great-step nieces.
He was preceded in death by two brothers in infancy and his parents.
Don owned and operated his auto repair shop, Clark Auto Repair in Sublette for many years. He was well known throughout the community and beyond for his love of antique and classic cars. He had the talent and ability to restore cars deteriorated by age to original condition. His knowledge of engine repair and restoration was sought after by people from all across the country. If Don did not know how to fix it, then no one could. His ingenuity and resourcefulness enhanced his reputation and people fully respected his knowledge and abilities, probably more than he ever knew.
Memorials may directed to the family, memorials will be established.
