Glen Fred Clark, 77, died July 5, 2003 in Phoenix.
He was born July 8, 1925 to William B. and Mae Bell Clark in Springville, Utah. He spent his youth in Springville, graduating from high school there in 1943. He then served in the U.S. Navy from 1943 until 1946.
He married his high dchool sweetheart, Carol Cherrington, Oct. 4, 1945, in the Manti L.D.S. Temple. After the war he attended B.Y.U. where he played football and obtained his teaching degree. For the next 38 years he taught school and coached at South Sevier High School in Monroe, Utah, Snow College in Ephraim, Utah, and Snowflake Union High School in Snowflake.
He was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in many different positions. When he retired from teaching in 1986, he and his wife, Carol, served a mission for their church in Portland, Oregon. They then served as Temple workers in the Mesa Arizona Temple from 1990 thru March 2002. They continued their service in the Snowflake Arizona Temple until his death. Serving the Lord was a great joy in his life. Glen enjoyed spending time in the outdoors, playing golf, fishing and hunting with his dog, Kermit. Over the years he was often occupied with sports in one capacity or another; playing, coaching, as a referee or just watching. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He will be greatly missed.
