Mr. Clark was such a great instructor, and a kind and patient teacher. He was a great help to me and many other students. My condolences to his family.

Our whole family was terribly saddened by Lynn's passing.. He was one of the kindest men ever. He gave our daughter a peppermint (before she would talk to anyone) every time she came to LIT. And then he brought her one to her wedding. She just loved him, as we all did.

Sorry to hear of Lynn's passing. I have fond memories of the Clark family as both friends and neighbors while growing up in the Amelia area.. I will always remember the camping trips we shared to Dam B. Prayers to the family.

I first met Lynn when I joined the Southeast Veterans Honor Group. I was Air Force and being a fellow Crew Chief, we hit it off. It was a pleasure to chat with Lynn as we prepared for a fellow brother or sister veterans funeral service. It was an honor to be a friend of Lynn's. So sorry for his passing, but he will be remembered.

Our sympathy to all his loving family members from the Trinity Homebound Committee.
