Clark was born on November 15, 1951 to Oscar E. Will and Martha (Fink) Will. Clark was baptized on December 2, 1951 and confirmed in faith on May 1, 1966, both at Hope Lutheran Church in Delmont.
Clark graduated from Delmont High School in 1969. He later graduated from Southeast Area Vocational Technical School in Sioux Falls in 1971.
Clark married Sonia Peters on May 30, 1980 at Zion Lutheran Church in Delmont. To this union, two children were born: Angela Lynn and Dustin John. They lived on a farm outside of Delmont until 1998, when they moved to a house in town, but Clark continued to raise cattle and farm for several years after. Clark also worked for a time for Douglas County as a maintenance employee.
Clark was active in his community, serving terms on the board of Agland Co-op and as Delmont City Councilman. He also enjoyed attending his kids’ and grandkids’ activities and travel with Sonia and their family and friends. His favorite trips included Cancun, Mexico, Panama City, Panama, and the Barrett Jackson car show in Las Vegas. His friends and family will lovingly remember him for his fantastic sense of humor and the way he always loved a laugh and a good story.
Clark passed away on Sunday, May 15, 2022 at Avera Bormann Manor in Parkston, at the age of 70, due to complications from cancer. Grateful for having shared his life are his wife Sonia; two children: Angie (Travis) Stiens of Alexandria, Virginia and Dustin (Jennifer) Will of Lincoln, Nebraska; 5 grandchildren: Gavin and Sophia Stiens, Miles, Grayson, and Elise Will. He will also be missed by his siblings, sister Kristie (Kevin) Harrington of Burlington, North Carolina, brother Steven (Kim) Will of Stockholm, Wisconsin, and brother Michael (Barb) Will of Delmont, many extended family members, and his friends.
At the gates of heaven, Clark was reunited with his parents.
