In Memory of

Ray Lawrence Clark, Jr.

May 30, 1924 - June 6, 2013

Ray Lawrence Clark, Jr.
Age 89

Passed away peacefully at the Minneapolis Veterans Hospital Palliative Care Center at 15:30 on Thursday, June 6, 2013 of multiple myeloma, cancer of the blood and bone marrow, caused by ionizing radiation exposure received in WWII when he was a weather observer at Tachikawa Air Force Base immediately following the dropping of atomic bombs in Japan.
Ray's earlier symptoms of blood disease were treated in 1989 by removal of his spleen at the University of Minnesota Hospital. Ray comprehended love to his last breath and beyond. As a list-maker he had a generous agenda and with great foresight, patience, and determination, Ray was able to fulfill major goals in the final weeks and days of his life.

"Ray was special to many of us. His passion for life was an inspiration. I'm so happy I got to spend time with him and especially in May at the UNITED SHOW..." maureen torrey marshall (elba, NY)
