Our hearts were saddened when James H. Clark passed away on March 13. 2022, at Essentia Hospital in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. James (Jim) Henry Clark was born on August 17, 1942. His parents were Charles and Evelyn Clark, but he and his two brothers and uncle were raised by his grandmother Anna Pinn. He grew up in Culbertson, NE and then joined the Navy in 1962 and served on the USS Duncan. When he returned home, he married Sandra (Marquardt) Clevenger and had two children, Troy Clark, and Tammy (Clark) Faimon. Later in life he was blessed with four stepchildren and now we have William (Andrea) Clark, Denny (Kelly) Anderson, Robert (Kim) Stromberg and Joe (Diana) Farrell and all their families. Jim spent most of his life as a salesman. He sold furniture, mobile homes and then cars for most of his life. In 1980 Jim moved from Fargo, ND and became the sales manager for Davis Chevrolet and later with Overvold Motors both in Fargo, ND, but in 1990 he took a job with Neresons Auto and moved to Detroit Lakes, MN area where he spent the remainder of his life. His Detroit Lakes life and home were where he found peace and happiness. Jim retired from sales in 2004.
