John W. Clark, age 54, passed away at Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital, Milwaukee, WI, on Wednesday, December 2, 2009, surrounded by his loving and supportive family, the result of a tragic accident on November 19, 2009.
John was born September 26, 1955, in Racine to William and Ruth (Nee: Tyllo) Clark. John graduated from Washington Park High School “Class of 1973.” He was employed as a General Manager of Beyond Green Inc. and thought of each and everyone there as his second family.
John is survived by the best mom anyone could ask for, Ruth Clark of Racine; his older sister and brother-in-law, Sue Clark and Nick Rudelich of Milwaukee; his younger sister, Judy Clark of Racine; his favorite younger brother, Tom Clark of Racine; nephew, Gustav Rudelich of Honolulu, HI; niece, Kendra Rudelich of Oakland, CA. He is further survived by cousins, second cousins, and cousins-in-law whose company he enjoyed during holidays and special family events. John never met a stranger; needless to say he is survived by numerous friends he has known for a lifetime. John is preceded in death by his Dad, William; his favorite Uncle, Charlie; Aunt, Pat Tyllo; and many other relatives.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Sunday, December 6, 2009, at 4 p.m. at St. Edward Catholic Church, 1401 Grove Ave., with Rev. Allen Bratkowski and Rev. Richard J. Molter concelebrating, assisted by Deacon Russell Missureli. Private interment will be held at Holy Cross Cemetery, Hwy 32. Relatives and friends may meet with the family on Sunday at the church from 2 p.m. until time of Mass at 4 p.m. Memorials to St. Edward Catholic Church have been suggested.
Our family wants to express their appreciation and thanks to the outstanding staff at Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital SICU and everyone else who was there to help John during his final journey.
