I first met Clark when I was employed @ Tim Horton’s in Liverpool . The 2nd. time I saw Clark he was grading our road . My husband and I were sitting on the patio and Gene waved to him . He stopped and when he got out he said “I thought that was you ” . Every time he graded our road after that he would take a moment to stop in and have a coffee and a good yarn with Gene . He was such a nice man . We are very sorry to hear of his passing .
