He was born November 27, 1935 to A. John and Xarissa Merkley Clarke in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, along with his twin sister, Jill. Jack and Jill joined two older sisters, Peg and Sybil, with Kathy coming along later to complete the family. As a child, Jack moved to Provo, Utah, where he grew up and attended Brigham Young High School. He graduated in the Class of 1954. He was a gifted athlete and recognized as an All-American football player. He attended BYU where he played football his freshman year. Then Jack was called to serve in the Western States LDS Mission, where he labored faithfully for two years. Upon his return, he met his sweetheart, Marilyn Tuckett. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple, September 25, 1958. After they both graduated from BYU, life took them to Ogden, Cedar City, Salt Lake City and Rexburg, Idaho. They spent their retirement years in Orem, Utah, making dear friends amongst their neighbors and ward members. Jack and Marilyn were the devoted parents of seven children. As their father, Jack's hallmark was encouraging his children to reach beyond what they thought might be possible. Jack worked for State Farm Insurance, Diet Center, Inc., and Ricks College. He also served his country in the National Guard. He will be remembered for his faithful service in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served as bishop in three wards: Cedar City 1st, Rexburg 10th and Ricks College 42nd, and as a branch president at the Provo MTC. He was involved in mentoring young men through the Boy Scouts of America as Scoutmaster. He taught not only scouting skills, but also life lessons while sharing the gospel along the way. He saw many of his scouts advance to the rank of Eagle, and Jack was later recognized with the Silver Beaver Award. Jack was a true "people person." He loved getting to know people, forging friendships and then treasuring those relationships. When he talked to you there was always genuine interest. Strangers quickly became friends, usually from questions about where they were from, where they went to school, and making connections with the "Do you know . . .?" game. His teasing manner and warmth soon put people at ease. Jack was extremely generous with his time and with his means. He is survived by his children: Jennifer Sorensen, Kristen (Spencer) Kirk, Colette, Drew (Adrienne), James (Andrea) and Scott; 15 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren; sisters: Jill Harris and Kathy Williams. He was preceded in death by his wife, Marilyn; his son, Bryan; his son-in-law, Christian Sorensen; his parents and his sisters, Peg Riley and Sybil Ferguson. As a family, we express deep gratitude to his Good Shepherd caregivers who were angels in his time of need. We are also grateful Dad spent the past six months in the home of his daughter, Jennifer, and her daughter, Marissa, after the passing of our mother. We love you, Dad. The funeral service will be held Monday, August 6, 2018, at 11 a.m. at the Nelson Family Mortuary Chapel, 4780 N. University Avenue, Provo.

Rudger & Martha +2 Clawson

Board of Trustees, 1939 to 1944. Rudger Clawson was born March 12, 1857 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Hiram Bradley Clawson and Margaret Gay Judd. Raised as a member of the Church, he was called to several leadership positions, most notable of which were as an Apostle on October 10, 1898, Second Counselor to Lorenzo Snow October 6, 1901, and President of the Twelve beginning March 17, 1921. Meanwhile he found time to marry three times and father eleven children. He first married Martha Ann Dinwoody 1882; later practiced plural marriage; eleven children. Rudger Clawson was the first member of the Church to be prosecuted under the infamous Edmund's Law. His jury was composed of twelve non-Mormons, although Utah at the time was more than nine-to-one Latter-day Saint. Lydia Spencer, another one of his wives, refused to be sworn and was herself committed to the penitentiary in an attempt to force her to testify. Ultimately Rudger was convicted in an unconstitutional ex-post facto application of the law. As a result of his conviction he was subjected to a fine of $500 and the harsh sentence of three years and six months to a federal penitentiary, for which he had donated $1000 to its construction. He was pardoned in 1887 by President Grover Cleveland, which cut only four months off his sentence. Rudger Clawson died June 21, 1943 in Salt Lake City, Utah, well beloved and respected by throughout the Church.

Steve Clawson. @2009 ~ ~ ~ ~ Re: 2010 All Classes Reunion: Larry, Thanks for the information about the general get together of those graduating from BYH. I graduated in 1959 and our class just had our 50th. But as I live in Copenhagen, Denmark I missed that on and as of this moment I will not be in the States this September. We just got back from a five-day visit. But I would like for you to give out the word that we would love to have any and all come to visit us here. We do not have a big Condo but we can handle visitors and quests. We had 12 for lunch last Sunday, many were tourists, mostly from the States. We do hope that all goes well and please let us know of all that is happening. Thanks for you initiative and all your good work. All the Best. Steve og Marion Clawson, Fuglebakkevej 92 2-2, 2000 Frederiksberg (Copenhagen, Denmark) 45 38 34 68 34, phone. @July2010
