Norman Clark, 72 OCEANSIDE -- Our beloved "Obie" passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 23, 2011. Born in Chicago, Ill., on February 26, 1939, his family moved to Kansas City in his early teens. Norm's lifelong love of aeronautics began with the Apollo Program. His expertise involved him in such projects as evacuating endangered species from the Aleutian Islands before the final U.S. underground nuclear testing. His career with Boeing began when he designed the electrical system on the CH46 "Seaknight." He never left the "PHROG'S" side from the first delivery in 1964. Norm (SENIOR SEAKNIGHT) proudly served the Marines in Vietnam as a tech rep for three tours, continuing PHROG duty at Pendleton to the present. Known as the old man, he even followed the CH46 to Iraq. Norm was profoundly respected professionally, as family man and as a trusted friend. Norm is survived by his devoted wife, Pat; sister, Barbara (Bill); sons, Brian (Karen), Mitchell (Margarita), Kevin (Myuki); step-sons, Scott (Marcia), Brad (Cindy); stepdaughter, Brooke (Mike). Adored grandchildren, Marie, Austin (Noel), Eri, Alison (Tyrone), Anthony, Kelly, Vicky, Megan, Jack, Tommy, Isabella, and Gus. Visitation will be held between 4 and 8 p.m., Friday, July 29, at Eternal Hills Mortuary in Oceanside. Funeral services will be at 10 a.m., Saturday, July 30, at Faith Lutheran Church in Vista. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Wounded Warriors or Faith Lutheran Church, Vista.
