Daniel Perry Clark

| August 26, 2020

Daniel Perry Clark, age 79, of Coshocton, passed away on Sunday, August 23, 2020. He was born on November 7, 1940, to the late Russell and Margaret (Pierce) Clark.

Dan graduated from Coshocton High School in 1958 and joined the National Guard serving from 1963 to 1969. He worked for General Electric for 10 years and then Stone Container as a supervisor for over 30 years before retiring.

For 6 years, he fought to be with his family and quoted often “I’m tougher than whale shit”. Dan loved music; he played many instruments by ear that included the piano and harmonica. He also had a beautiful singing voice. He was a wonderful artist, painting many pictures that he gave away to family and friends. He was an avid reader often sharing his knowledge with others and could have been a contestant and winner on Jeopardy. Dan loved refurnishing furniture, landscaping and digging in his garden – that is where you would find him most days. He loved to dance the jitterbug with his wife, Shirley. He had a great sense of humor, kind loving heart, and will be deeply missed.

He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Shirley (Davis) Clark, three children, Angela Adams of Coshocton, Jennifer (Larry Keith) Fry of Coshocton, and Jason (Katherine) Clark of Coshocton, grandchildren Jordan (Kendrajo) Fry, Whitney (Adam) Haumschild, Olivia (Jake) Ballard, Jacob Clark and Myles Clark; great-grandchildren, Bexlee and Axel Fry and one on the way.

Along with his parents, Dan was preceded in death by his stepmother, Pauline Salmons Clark.

Per Dan’s wishes, a memorial service will be held Saturday, September 5, 2020 at the Brown Farm 50166 TR 200, Coshocton, OH 43812 at 1 pm for family and friends.

For those who wish, memorial contributions may be made in Dan’s name to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
