Sir Knight Deacon David Clark, Col. U.S. Army Retired

FM, FDD, PGK, PFN

Dear Brothers and Ladies,  

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Brother Sir Knight Deacon David Clark. Dave passed away this morning at about 11:45 at CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh. He is believed to have suffered a heart attack.

As many of you know Dave has been hospitalized since last September waging a fight with the effects of severe diabetes. Over the course of that time he suffered a heart attack, amputations of a leg, toes, and last Thursday the amputation of his second leg below the knee.  

We have lost one of finest men. Dave served our Order on every level as a Grand Knight of Plattsburgh Council 255 , District Deputy, Distrct Master, Faithful Navigator and Faithful Comptroller. Many recall Dave as Warden to 3rd Degree Conferring Officer Roger Miner. He was a beloved deacon at St. John’s Church in Plattsburgh and served our country as a career U.S. Army officer retiring as a Full Colonel.

Please keep his wife Mary and his family in your prayers. I’ve included a few photos of our beloved brother.  Mary’s address is 10 Moreau way, Plattsburgh, NY 12901.


Vivat Jesus!
