Roy Eugene Clark

August 16, 1935 — December 26, 2021

Roy was born on August 16,1935 in Harlingen, Texas. It’s a very small town, and everyone knew everyone. He had two older sisters’, one was ten years older, the other was 15 years older. Their daddy passed away when my dad was 14, so he and his mother were extremely close to one another. My dad always recalled such happy times when he was allowed to spend time at his daddy’s’ feed and seed store, he loved climbing on the bales of hay and the tall stacks of feed. He always spoke of his parents’ generosity, so, I am sure that is where my dad learned that important trait. My dad began working at a young age in cotton warehouses, news paper routes and odd jobs for neighbors.
He eventually worked for my mom’s father, who owned a dairy in south Texas. That is where my dad first met my mother. He had to persuade my mom’s dad to let him ask her out for a date…eventually, my grandpa agreed, and they were married in 1961. They moved to Azusa, California in 1965, and my dad began working for his uncle who owned a liquor store in Alhambra. This line of work eventually lead him to a 30 year career in sales with The William George Company. He was a very devoted and loved employee and he made life long friends there and was frequently acknowledged for his accomplishments within the company. We eventually moved to Brea, my mom was the love of his life and they were married 33 years. My mom passed away in 1994, and he and my brother moved to Redlands in 2003 to be closer to me and my family; he adored his 3 granddaughters, Jennifer, Cidney and Harli!
His greatest joy and life work was to provide for his family, to spend time with us, and to help anyone along the way…he was so positive, helpful, always, always joking around and had many famous funny sayings…he always said “Cheers” when saying goodbye…Anyone who knew him, truly loved him…he was a gentle soul, one that forever shaped who I am, and I have always been very thankful to God for allowing me to be his daughter, and I know my brother, Brad feels the same way too!
Our parents believed in Christ as their Savior, and it brings us so much hope and comfort to know they are now reunited, and one day we will all be together and we will never have to say goodbye or “Cheers” again!
