John Allan ClarkThursday, February 8th, 1951 – Friday, May 28th, 2021
It is with profound sadness that we share the passing of John Allan Clark (“Johnny”) on Friday, May 28, 2021.
Johnny was born in 1951 in Guelph to parents Malcolm and Donalda Clark of Puslinch. A tall and strong fifth generation farmer, he proudly farmed alongside his brother Jimmie for 52 years. Family, friends, and community members always appreciated his generosity and kindness in sharing his bounty – especially the annual squash harvest.
Johnny enjoyed playing baseball, cheering on the Maple Leafs, and debating politics. He was an avid supporter of harness racing in Ontario and previously owned a number of standardbred horses. Johnny will be remembered as a passionate conversationalist who enjoyed talking to everyone he crossed paths with.
Johnny will be deeply missed by his brother James Clark (“Jimmie”), sister Helen Dunbar, and brother-in-law Fred. Uncle Johnny will always have a special place in the hearts of his niece Leah and nephew Keith.
A private service will be held with the immediate family. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Guelph General Hospital Foundation in the name of John Allan Clark (519-837-6422 or www.gghfoundation.ca).
