Edward J. Clark, Jr., 84, of North Berwick went to be with the Lord on April 30, 2023 after a long battle with cancer.
Ed was born May 27, 1938, the son of Edward and Ella (Brooks) Clark in Medford, MA. After attending Winthrop High School, Ed proudly served in the United States Air Force for 21 years, stationed in England, Bermuda, Massachusetts, Korea, the Midwest, Delaware, Turkey and New Hampshire. He settled in North Berwick, retiring from Pease Air Force Base as a weather forecaster. He worked for Portsmouth Naval Shipyard for 18 years. After retirement he worked in the Noble School district and Seacoast Christian Academy. Not wanting to completely retire, he operated Superior Sharpening and also painted houses for local folks. Ed was a dedicated parishioner of Bethel Christian Church in North Berwick for many years.
With his family scattered all over the world, he and his wife of 60 years, Lenore loved traveling to see all of their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Ed was a happy outgoing man who enjoyed each and every day God gave to him, never taking for granted one minute. He enjoyed fishing, a good game of cribbage, and Boston sports teams.
Ed was pre-deceased by his parents and son, Michael Clark in 2022. He will be forever loved by his wife, Lenore Clark of North Berwick, 2 sons, Lawrence (Kristen) Clark of Tijeras, New Mexico and Edward (Trish)Clark III of Portland, OR, daughter Kim Clark of Isle of Barra Scotland; daughter-in-law Pamm Clark of Lake Havasu, AZ; sister Mary McBrearty of Hartford, CT, 11 grandchildren, 14, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.
