In keeping with Robert’s wishes, services will be private for family. In lieu of flowers, the family asks those who would like to make a donation in Robert’s memory to kindly consider the Tunnels to Towers Foundation.
Robert was born in Elmira on August 11, 1956, a son to Roger and Patricia (nee Masone) Clark. He graduated from Horseheads High School and then joined the United States Army where he honorably served his country from 1974 to 1976.
Robert was employed as a correction officer working various places throughout the state prior to retiring in 2006 from the Willard Drug Treatment Center. He was an avid collector of many things and loved camping. His annual camping trips with family and close friends to Robert Treman Park every Memorial Day weekend and trips to Brandywine, Pennsylvania created some of his most cherished memories.
He is survived by his wife, Karen Clark; son, Robert (Amanda) Clark; mother, Patricia Clark; brother, Daniel Clark and William (Mary) Clark; sister, Carol (Chris) Cuyler; and best friend, Robert Campagna. He was preceded in death by his father, Roger Clark.
