Jack was united in marriage to Mary Ann Yager on January 27, 1951 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, Bettendorf.
Jack owned and operated Clark’s Barber Shop for 49 years, retiring in 1995.
Jack had a wonderful sense of humor and was quick with a joke. His passion was tending to his yard. Jack was also a great fan of John Wayne and collected a lot of The Duke’s memorabilia over the years.

He was preceded in death by his parents. May they rest in peace.
The Clark family would like to thank Genesis Hospice, especially Julie VanMelekebeke for all the loving and compassionate care shown to Jack in his final days.
