Charles Leonard Clark

“Uncle Chuck” or “Coach” was born to Robert and Erma Clark on Feb 17, 1958 in Medina, New York on a blustery winter day. The weather was so bad they had to call a snowplow to get the ambulance through.

And it is exactly how Chuck comes on. Everywhere he goes he makes an entrance. He is pure joy and makes you feel like you are, or could be, the best there is.

Throughout his life you could always find him on the basketball court, baseball diamond or football field either playing or coaching.

Chuck graduated from DeSales Catholic High school in Lockport NY. He went to the University of Kentucky for criminal law and following graduation, became a New York State Trooper. After a bout with illness, he came to Oak Harbor to visit and decided to stay. He worked at Home Depot and trained to be a maintenance man. However, nothing could stop him from his first love of coaching football and he got the opportunity to do so with the Coupeville Wolves. You would find him on Saturdays from first to last game at Fort Nugent Park and touching the lives of the youth and parents of Oak Harbor. On Sundays we remember his hearty smile and amazing voice singing songs of praise. No service is planned at this time due to the holidays.

Chuck was preceded in death by his parents and siblings : Jonni Morant, Ruth (Rueben) McKenzie, Rufus Clark, Jessie Clark, Henry Clark, Vera Brown, Stella Jackson, Betty Gadsden, Geraldine Clark, Elaine Clark, and Beverly Clark. He is survived by Ernie Clark, Barbara Beauford, Milton (Floria) Clark, Catherine Johnson, Wayne (Mary) Clark, Gwen (Tim) Oest, 2 very special sisters in law, Mattie Clark and Gloria Clark. And more nieces, nephews and cousins than I can count and that’s the amount of love that he had for each of them.

In lieu of flowers or cards, Chuck would ask you to gift one another with your smiles and kindness.
