    My sincerest condolences to the family.
    Mr. Clark is a prominent figure in most of my childhood memories, learning to ride a bike on Penrise St, to toilet paper in the trees in October (which had to be cleaned up first thing the next morning). Deepest sympathies to his family.

    I would like to express my deepest sympathy to Darlene and all Don’s family
    I best knew Don through our fishing trips. When the boat motor would not start Don would say “remain calm let’s not panic let’s keep our spirits up “and then we would laugh
    Good friends make good times!
    Hey Don

    So very sorry to hear of Don’s passing. We are shocked at this news. Knowing ‘Clarky ” since the time I started at Shell in 1967, Don and I were referred to as the “kids” because of us being younger. Many great memories over the years, lots of good times. Don was always the same, take the good with the bad with a chuckle. Will be greatly missed by all that knew him. Ben & Donna

    I am shocked to say the least of Don’s passing. I was looking forward to getting to renew our relationship as you had recently moved to Valentina St. in Petrolia.
