Norman Duane Clark, age 87, of Neola, passed away on November 28, 2013, at his home. He was born on April 18, 1926, in Vernal, to Ned "Nick" and Wilma Allred Clark. He was the oldest of five children and was raised in his younger years in his favorite place on earth, the Book Cliffs. On October 26, 1946, he married the love of his life, Norma Rae Freston. Norman was an Army veteran of World War II, serving in the Pacific Theatre. He was a retired captain with the Tucson Arizona Fire Department, and also worked at various positions in the oil fields. His passions in life were his family and the beauty of nature. He was most content when enjoying the great outdoors on the back of his horse, Deuce. He is survived by his two children, Linda (Lanny) Raymond and Steven Duane Clark. He was the beloved "Papa" to Kristen, Ryan, Robyn, John, Jessica, Andrea, Fraser, Danielle, and nine great grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother, Curley (Joyce) Clark of Tucson, Arizona. He was preceded in death by his wife, Norma Rae. His wishes were to be cremated and the cremated remains buried next to his wife in the Leota Cemetery. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, December 5, 2013, at 11:00 a.m., at the Neola LDS Church. We love you dad and "Papa", but are grateful you are now with our Lord and enjoying a joyful reunion.
