Larry E. Clark, 80, of Owensboro passed peacefully at his home on August 13, 2023. He was born in Daviess County on August 20, 1942 to the late Elmo and Kathryn Clark.
Larry was a U.S. Army Veteran and retired from Century Aluminum after more than thirty-five years of service. He was a member of Owensboro Christian Church.
Larry was an avid bicyclist and logged over 108,000 miles over 32 years and 6 bicycles. He was an Ornithologist, with a particular fondness of hummingbirds. He also spent many hours on his piano, including Monday, August 7th, surrounded by his family, playing and singing some of his favorite gospel tunes.
Above all, Larry treasured every moment he spent with his family during Sunday meals, impromptu visits, trips to the Lake and his favorite private "swimming hole". In addition to his parents Larry was preceded in death by his grandparents Avery and Lizzie Goodman.
The loving family left to cherish his memory include the love of his life and wife of 59 years, Connie F. Clark (nee-Unsel); son, Kevin Clark (Susan); and daughter, Stacy Watson (Drew). His pride and joy were his eight grandchildren, Justin Clark (Lisa) of Woodlands, TX, Mackenzie Clark of Owensboro, Zachary Anderson of Louisville, KY, Jacob Anderson, Ann Lawton Watson, Ellie Watson, Chelsea Yewell and Jeremy Yewell, all of Owensboro. Larry was incredibly blessed with six great-grandchildren, Rae Lynn, Thea, and Stella Clark of Woodlands, TX and Aubrey, Jeremiah and Micah Yewell of Owensboro, KY. He is also survived by his brother, Dennis W. Clark (Nancy) of Maceo, KY and several nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to express their deepest gratitude and admiration for the talented and caring medical support Larry received from Hospice and Palliative Care of Western Kentucky and the nursing and medical staff of Owensboro Health, especially Dr. Alan Mullins.
Visitation will be from 4:00 until 6:00 PM, Friday, August 18 at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory.
Larry and his family requests expressions of sympathy take the form of donations to Hospice and Palliative Care of Western Kentucky, 3419 Wathen’s Crossing, Owensboro, KY 42301.
