Dick and Carolyn Clark

Class of 1942. Richard S. Clark. Banter Student Newspaper Staff. Boys' Organization. Football. Baseball. Dick married his high school sweetheart, Carolyn Moore, on June 19, 1943, just before he left for Italy to serve in the U.S. Air Corp. He had a long and successful career in medicine. He was a golfer and pilot as well. When he died Richard and Carolyn had been married for 57 years. He was survived by their two daughters, Patricia Clark Millar and Mary Kay Clark; one son, Richard S. Clark, II; seven grandchildren, Jennifer Millar, Richard S. Clark, III (Virginia), Carrie Millar (Mrs. Bradley Bott), Sesily Clark (Mrs. Trent Lee), David Clark Millar, Sean Clark, and Dugan Richard Rees; and one great grandchild, Cohen Chadburn Lee. EXTENDED OBITUARY: Richard S. Clark, M.D., passed away on Thursday, April 19, 2001, of an extended illness at the early age of 77. "Dr. Dick" was born on December 4, 1923 to Dr. Stanley M. Clark and Mary Newell Clark in Provo, Utah. He was the second of three sons, all of whom practiced medicine in the Utah Valley for over 40 years. Dr. Dick was the son of a physician and was the eleventh in his family to choose medicine or dentistry. Dr. Dick graduated from BY High in 1942. He married his high school sweetheart, Carolyn Moore, on June 19, 1943, just before he left for Italy to serve in the US Air Corp. After returning from World War II, he entered the University of Colorado at Boulder where he eventually obtained his Bachelor of Science degree. Medical school took him to Philadelphia where he graduated from Jefferson Medical College in 1951. He then traveled back to Utah to complete his internship and OB/GYN residency at Thomas Dee Memorial Hospital in Ogden. In 1955, he returned to Provo to practice medicine with his father and two brothers, carrying on the family heritage of the Clark Clinic. By 1960, he was the first Board Certified OB/GYN South of Salt Lake City, Utah. He retired from private practice in 1996, yet he continued his service to medicine as the Medical Director of the Operating Rooms at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center up until his illness disabled him from working in 2000. In the time he spent away from his medical practice, he loved to play golf, fish and hunt, ski, travel with his wife and friends, and he took a special joy in "flying solo" with his seven grandchildren. He also had a love for sports, in particular Ice Hockey, and was instrumental in recruiting recreational and professional talent into the State of Utah. He will be remembered for his vitality, wonderful sense of humor, strength and compassion. His love and generosity to his family and friends was unquestioned. His life was devoted to medicine and his patients. He was so much more than their doctor. He was their friend, confidant, father, teacher, coach, and leader. While he tended to their pain, he listened, supported, and guided. Survived by his wife, Carolyn Moore Clark; two daughters, Patricia Clark Millar and Mary Kay Clark; one son, Richard S. Clark II; seven grandchildren, Jennifer Millar, Richard S. Clark III (Virginia), Carrie Millar (Mrs. Brad Bott), Sesily Clark, David Clark Millar, Sean Clark, and Dugan Richard Rees; his brother, R.

The family suggests a contribution to the Huntsman Cancer Institute (877) 585-0303. [Provo Daily Herald, April 21, 2001]

Clark, Robert (1942)

Bob Clark

Class of 1942. Bob Clark. Basketball. Football. Baseball. Boys' Organization. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY? Robert Sevy Clark (May 17, 1924 - July 6, 2019) was born in Panguitch, Utah to Elden Dewey Clark and Pauline Sevy Clark, who were also born and raised in Panguitch. Bob’s 95 years of life have been focused on family, faith, and devotion to duty. His life experiences have been uncommon to say the least. At the beginning of the Great Depression, when Bob was five years old, his parents sold their Panguitch home they had built with their own hands, and moved to Salt Lake City to enroll at the University of Utah. The family moved to Chicago for his father to attend medical school at Northwestern University, then to Ogden for residency, and Provo where his father practiced medicine. He felt close to his Granddad Sevy in Panguitch, and enjoyed summers helping watch over sheep in the mountains above Bryce Canyon. When just 12 years old, he spent most of the summer by himself in a mountain sheep camp with a dog, a horse, and a 30-30 rifle. As a teenager in Provo, Bob learned to work hard, securing a blue-collar job at the brickyard where he developed respect and friendship for people of all economic and social classes. Bob attended his senior year of high school at Peter Stuyvesant High School for the Sciences in New York City while his father received advanced training at Columbia University.?? In 1942, at age 18, Bob enlisted in the Army Air Corps, where he served for three years in the 8th Air Force on a B-17 crew stationed at Rougham Airfield in England. He was a bombardier and waist gunner who could take a 50-caliber machine gun apart blindfolded. While on leave in Utah he received a patriarchal blessing that included promises that were precious to him and provided guidance throughout his life. After the war, he enrolled at BYU, where he was a good student and a good athlete, especially as a member of the football team. At age 24, Bob accepted a mission call to Finland, where he served for two and a half years. Soon after his return he met “a fair daughter of Zion,” the love of his life, Verna Stokes, from Salmon, Idaho. They were married in the Idaho Falls Temple on April 18, 1952. It would be impossible to over-state Verna’s contribution as Bob’s greatest ally, comfort, and champion. He also felt greatly blessed by the love and support of the Stokes family. Bob completed a degree in Geology from BYU and was employed by Socony Mobil Oil Company. In the 1950’s, part of that adventure included years in Bogota, Colombia; while Verna stayed in Bogota, Bob would spend weeks at a time on oil exploration assignments in the deep jungle. His children loved his stories of bushmaster snakes, sure-footed pack mules, powerful rivers, and impressive South American natives who guided and even saved his life in the jungle. Bob’s career and life were filled with opportunities to serve and share. He loved science, math, and the natural world. He had a sense of courage and adventure and was never timid or fearful. His inquisitive mind never slowed down. The family lived for years in Mesa, Arizona, and their hearts will be forever blessed because of their dear friends there. Bob interrupted his career in geology to study industrial ceramics at the University of Utah, where he received a Master’s Degree. Later he devised innovative methods to create high-strength ceramics and received process patents that involved stunning results. Commercialization was elusive, yet the passion he felt for his projects was infectious and lasted for years. Bob was willing to serve wherever he was asked. He served for a time as the director of Church programs at the Arizona State Penitentiary in Florence, Arizona. He developed life-long friendships with those who served alongside of him and also with many individuals whose lives and hearts were changed, and who overcame painful mistakes and periods of incarceration. He felt joy in his service as the Bishop of a Young Single Adult ward at BYU, where he cared deeply for each young person. He loved teaching; he taught high school math to underprivileged youth, seminary, and church classes in Sunday School, Young Men, and Primary. Well into his 80’s he accepted a call to teach a Primary class in his ward. He must have been among the Church’s oldest primary teachers, but he loved it. He bought each student a harmonica and, if they participated well, would spend the last few minutes of each class teaching them to play “Come, Come, Ye Saints.” One of the greatest trials of Verna and Bob’s lives started at Thanksgiving in 1991, when their 31 year-old son, Joe, suffered an inexplicable brain infection resulting in debilitating strokes. After many surgeries and weeks of a coma, Joe recovered only enough to speak slowly and have minimal movement. Yet his cognitive abilities were intact and his life became a beacon of light and love to all who knew him. No parents could be more devoted than Bob and Verna, as they did all within their power to show love and care to their son. During that period Joe was visited often by Elder Neal A. Maxwell, and Bob developed a special kinship with Elder Maxwell as they gave blessings to Joe together. Joe’s passing in 1996 has been the platform for a tender and life-long opportunity for Bob and Verna to show their faith and belief in an eternal plan of happiness. We rejoice in the image we have of Bob and Joe embracing and feeling the joy of a faithful reunion. In their later years, Bob and Verna were blessed to live in an amazing neighborhood in Provo. They have often remarked that heaven’s blessings were apparent in the neighbors and friends who have been sent their way. The kindness of ministering angels during many years is recognized with great appreciation. Perhaps the greatest tribute to Bob’s life is the manner in which Verna supported him throughout his life, and tenderly cared for him in his later years. Her tireless sacrifice (with the help of devoted children and grandchildren) allowed them to live independently to the end, and has inspired all who know them. Counting the years of Joe’s illness, Verna has spent decades as a full-time caregiver. The entire family also owes a special debt of gratitude to Sam Taylor for years of personal sacrifice in caring for his grandparents. Bob and Verna were gracious and generous hosts, welcoming and sharing to all they encountered. This was a legacy of both the Stokes and the Clark families. Bob’s choices in life always reflected his priorities of faith and family. He was an exemplary father and grandfather. He had a ready smile and a great sense of humor, exhibited to the very last of his life. He was a gifted teacher and story-teller and has been a sterling example to his posterity. Twice-daily family prayer was non-negotiable in the Clark home. He avoided pretense and never sought recognition. Bob and Verna have seven children, 37 grandchildren, and 22 great-grandchildren. Forty one of their posterity (counting spouses) have served missions; it meant a lot to Bob that his son, Joe, and his granddaughter, Rebecca were also called to serve in Finland. Bob was preceded in death by his brother, Elden, and his son, Joe. He is survived by his wife, Verna; brother, Paul; children: Douglas (Mila) of Mesa, Arizona; Robert (Wendy) of Sandy, Utah; Terri (Gregg) Taylor of Provo, Utah; daughter-in-law, Janice (John) Quinlan of Sugarland, Texas; Lorri (Jim) Edwards of Henderson, Nevada; Jay (Jill) Clark of Orem, Utah; and Dean (Jill) Clark of Rocklin, California. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m., Monday, July 15, 2019 at the Oak Hills 6th Ward Chapel, 1960 North 1500 East, Provo, Utah. Friends may visit with the family from 8:30-9:30 a.m. prior to services. Interment, Provo City Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, Bob and Verna encourage donations to a worthy humanitarian cause.

He served diligently and faithfully in positions in the church, his favorite being the Executive Secretary in the Pleasant View Ward. He was passionate about not only living life to the fullest, but serving and giving to others in any capacity he could. In his over two decades of life-threatening health problems, he never questioned or doubted why he had to suffer. He endured with courage and honor and he leaves behind a legacy of faith, endurance, patience, hard work, and a sturdy solid testimony of God.

Mary Lou and Floyd Taylor

Class of 1942. Mary Lou Dixon. Fauvines. Notre Maison, Secretary and Treasurer. School Play. Contest Play. Mary Lou married Floyd R. Taylor. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Mary Lou Dixon Taylor, 91, who was a long-time resident of Provo, passed away February 29, 2016 at her daughter’s home in Laie, Hawaii. Her loving husband, Floyd R. Taylor, preceded her in death; they were married for 56 years. Mary Lou was born May 16, 1924 in American Fork, Utah to Delbert Andrew and Helen Chipman Heiselt. When she was 14 months old her father passed away. Six years later, her mother, Helen, married Fred W. (Buck) Dixon, the father who lovingly raised her. Mary Lou graduated from Brigham Young High School in the Class of 1942. She worked part-time while attending Brigham Young University as a secretary for Elder Hugh B. Brown, a professor at BYU. She married Floyd R. Taylor in the Salt Lake Temple in 1947. They both graduated from Brigham Young University in 1948. They set up residency in Provo where they enjoyed raising their family. Mary Lou enjoyed being at home raising her children, but always had a love of learning and continued her education. She took a class each semester; Mary Lou completed her MA degree in 1970. When her youngest child began school, she went to work at Farrer Junior High as a school counselor. She had a wonderful career counseling hundreds of youth for 20 years. Mary Lou was always active in the LDS Church serving in many callings in her ward and stake in the Primary, Young Women, Sunday School, and Relief Society. Mary Lou’s devotion and service to the LDS Church and the students with whom she worked was exceeded only by her love and devotion to her family, who were the center of her life. Enjoying family vacations and reunions were a priority for her. The family took many trips in their camper, first across Utah and then from coast to coast. Mary Lou and Floyd created a gathering place at their home for their children and extended family on the Fourth of July. These are memories that established strong family bonds. Genealogy and family history were a focus in Mary Lou’s life in her later years. She wrote bedtime stories from the histories of her ancestors and had them printed for all of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Wildcat Yearbook Staff. ~ ~ ~ ~ Ferrying around the world: from Utah to West Africa. I graduated from the old BY High School in 1942. The Provo airport used to be down where East Bay is now, and I remember going down to visit a local fellow who had an airplane there. He later crashed and was killed near the airport. I never rode in an airplane till I went into the service. My father was in the tent and awning business at the time -- Huish Tent and Awning. I registered for the draft, worked for a while at Geneva Steel, then went to the Joseph Smith Building auditorium on BYU campus and took the entrance test to get into the air corps, because of my interest in airplanes. I was selected to be a candidate, so I went to the recruiting station in Salt Lake City and was taken into the air corps in early 1943. I was sent to Kearns, Utah, for basic training, and it was rough. We lived in tents, and it didn't matter what the weather was -- you were out in it. One day you'd be out picking up rocks, and the next day a grader would run over the land and dig up more rocks. So the next day you were out picking up rocks again. After basic, I was sent to Montana State College, in Missoula, in the College Training Detachment. There, we lived in the dorms and took the equivalent of a year of regular college classes in three or four months. It was then to Santa Ana, Calif., for classification. Depending on how you came out there, you became a pilot, a navigator, or a bombardier. I lucked out and got into pilot training. I did my primary training in the PT-17, the bi-wing Stearman, in Scottsdale, Ariz., which at that time was only a crossroad with a service station. North of it was an open field owned by a sheep rancher, who also had the food concession. (I don't eat mutton to this day.) My landing on my solo flight was the smoothest I ever made. I flew the BT-13 (the "Vultee Vibrator") in basic training, and the AT-6 for advanced. I wanted to fly the P-38, but was assigned to test new engines for the AT-6's -- but that got old after a couple of months. We then had the chance to go into the Ferrying Division of the Air Transport Command. A whole flock of us volunteered. I did a lot of ferrying in the Western U.S. Then the truth came out: we were assigned to Stead AFB in Reno, Nevada, for C-46 pilot training. Our eventual destination would be China - Burma - India. We picked up a C-46 in Des Moines, Iowa, flew down to Georgia, then to West Palm Beach, Florida. From there it was to Belém, Brazil, and on to Ascension Island (out in the middle of nowhere in the Atlantic), a scary eight-and-a-half-hour flight. We ran out of gas on the runway. On to French West Africa, but we were not allowed to open our orders till we arrived in Marrakesh, French Morocco. Our aircraft was taken away from us there (and there was nothing we could do about it), and it was also there that I learned our destination: Karachi, India. By that time, I'd heard stories about people who had flown the Hump, and it wasn't the pleasantest of routes to fly. From Marrakesh, we went to Tripoli, on to Cairo (where we had time to see a show of jugglers and other acts, and also the Sphinx and the pyramids -- I got my picture taken on a camel). Then it was on to Karachi, flying over Iran. I was assigned to Misamari, in the Assam Valley. [Provo Daily Herald, August 31, 2005.] ~ ~ ~ ~ 1992: John Huish, manager of Huish's Inc., received an award for Outstanding Businessman. Under his leadership, his patio furniture company moved from Provo to Orem and expanded facilities and services. His civic responsibilities have included president of the Orem Chamber of Commerce, and president of the Orem Kiwanis Club in 1961. He is a retired colonel in the Air Force. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: Col. John Choules Huish, 84, of Orem, Utah passed away Sunday, August 17th, from the debilitating effects of Parkinson's disease. He faced his challenges with bravery, acceptance and without complaint. John was born and raised in Provo, Utah on March 20, 1924 to Albert Floyd Huish and Rena Choules Huish. He was raised with four siblings, Bob, Bill, Elaine (Tuttle) and Norma (Philbrick). He graduated from BYU High School in 1942 where he participated in band, basketball, tennis and school plays. When World War II was declared, John volunteered for the Army Air Corp and was selected to take pilot training. He completed 65 missions with the Air Transport Command, flying Chinese troops over the China/Burma/India "Hump." John was proud of his service to his country, and remained a great patriot throughout his life. After the War ended, John enrolled at BYU and completed a degree in Business and Finance, graduating in 1951. He became a partner with his father in developing "Huish's." They produced canvas products, stage draperies and sold outdoor furniture. The store has been in business for over 60 years. John's love of the military caused him to enlist in the Air Force Reserves where he served as Commander of Material for the 945th Squadron at Hill Air Force Base. After 31 years of service, he was promoted to Colonel and was awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal for Meritorious Service. This service was a source of great pride to him. John loved his community and served as President of the 20-30 Club, President of the Orem Chamber of Commerce, and President of the Orem Kiwanis Club. He also served as President of a division of the United Way organization. In 1992 he was awarded the Arthur V. Watkins Outstanding Citizen Award for "Businessman of the Year" by the Provo/Orem Chamber of Commerce. John was a member of the LDS Church and served in many capacities, including 1st Counselor in the Bishopric, Ward Clerk and Stake Auditor. On March 17, 1949, John married Fawn Christensen at the Manti LDS Temple. He often expressed pride in Fawn's good cooking and the efforts she made to have a beautiful yard. John's wife, Fawn, and children, Todd (Sann), Shari (Brad ) Olsen, Scott (deceased), and Jackie (Matt) Durrant will forever cherish their fond memories of this good man. He will also be lovingly remembered by his 17 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
