Howard Daniel Clark

Howard Daniel Clark passed away on May 15th at Helen Porter Nursing Home, after a long period of failing health.

He was born at Thorne’s Nursing Home in Vergennes, VT on December 12, 1945, to Archie E. and Catherine (Briggs) Clark. He was raised on the family farm in Addison, where he attended elementary school, and later went on to high school in Vergennes.

Well- known in the Vergennes community, Howard was fortunate to have many people who looked out for him.  He could be found walking or riding his bike around town, sitting on the wall by the falls, hanging out at the Barber Shop or socializing by Kinneys.

Howard worked for many years with cattle dealer Bill Cassidy, and at various farms around Addison County. He also had several unofficial jobs such as raising the flag at area establishments.

He is survived by his sisters, Mary Jerome (Donald) of Waltham, VT, Nancy Vaughn (Bob Taft)  of Leesburg, FL, his brother Alan Clark (Jean) of Bristol, VT as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Howard was predeceased by his brother Donald Clark Sr, his sisters Barbara Cardany and Katherine Jimmo.

The family would like to thank Helen Porter Nursing home for the excellent care Howard received during his stay.

Calling hours will be Tuesday May 21st at the Brown-McClay Funeral Home in Vergennes from 5 to 8 pm.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Brown-McClay Funeral Home on Wednesday May 22 at 10 am, with burial following at the Grand View Cemetery in Addison.
