This just stunned me.....When I transferred into SFO from ORD they were the first to make me feel welcome as I knew no one.I spent the next year so before they moved to Wa., my admiration for him continued to grow. Such an acerbic wit!! He and Tommie played off each other, a wonder to see. Ill never forgot their kindness to all, tho Clark liked to come off as the bad guy, yea right., what a softie he was..... Just loved them both....so many good memories of them.. Rest well Clark, take TWA wings to heaven!!

I hadn't seen Clark or Tommie since our days at TWA-SFO.....we were all like family back then. I remember hikes, hockey (the Oakland Seals) and "Jameson's on the rocks." All of which bring a smile to my face.... What a kind heart Clark had and a gentle soul he was. Tommie you were the light of his life...when the two of you walked into a room, it just lit up. I am always grateful for the people that have touched my life...fly with the angels Clark!! Sending you much Love Tommie.

I remember Clark from two fiascos, one when he volunteered to serve an eviction notice - at night - at a property I owned in a tough part of Oakland, and the other from an ill-fated camping trip we took to Pyramid Lake, in Nevada, both of us comically undertrained for spending a night in the desert, fending for ourselves. But we had great laughs about it, and during long talks over our sad little campfire he revealed a part of himself few people ever saw. Clark became a good friend - much better than our brief time together or divergent political views would suggest - and his humor, humanity and decency will stay with me always. I'll always remember him as one of the kindest people I've ever known. Godspeed, Clark.

I just found out today that one of my best friends just passed away on February 29, 2020. Clark was one of my best friends times at TWA and after TWA. Clark was one of the most nicest people you could ever meet or know. In all the years that I have know or worked with Clark I never saw a bad side of him. He always made you laugh at something funny to make thing better. He was always there when ever you needed him. I will miss not taking to him when ever I call. It is hard for me to put down on this obituary what to say, there are so many good things about Clark that you could fill this whole page. I do know that he loved Tommie and he loved his dogs. He gave me the nickname "Johnny Jetway"., which is another story in itself that only Clark could tell. Safe Journey my friend, I will never forger you, I will miss you. Till we meet again. Johnny "Jetway" Steeb

Remembering Clark when we started out at ticket agents at TWA-SFO-ATO still brings a smile to my face since he was always lively, joking and full of the good things that made him immediately become a good and treasured friend. He was the kind of a friend that regardless of the years that went by between visits or talks, he always felt close...and was someone who would always be there if you needed him. I'll miss you buddy, and will remember all the good times we had together...you and Tommie made a great pair, so much alike in the good things that make you both so loveable.

Clark was my mom's little brother. What a goofball! He was an awesome uncle. When we were little kids he would scare us to death pretending to drive without looking at the road, pretending to be angry with us and countless other shenanigans! Clark was always family. Although the Mifflin branch lived several states away, he would reach out by phone or visit on a pretty regular basis and we always felt welcome with him and Tommie when we were lucky enough to see them in Issaquah or Spokane. We always appreciated Clark's zeal for life. He was a great example in that he was genuinely interested in people, places, and things at a deeper level. It was apparent that he was a good thinker. We will always remember Clark with great love and admiration. Rest in peace. Tommie, we love you and you are family of course. Let us know what we can do. Mark (Val), Peggy (Gary), Kathy, Jennifer (Troy) and Martin (Noelle)

We are deeply sorry for the loss of Clark. These pictures really do capture the man he was. Clark always had a smile every time you talked to him with that easy-going personality to match. A good man who deeply loved his wife and dogs and cruising around in that BMW. He was taken way too soon and will be missed by many.

Many have said " Why does God take so many good people, and leave so many bad?" I will tell you why. I believe that when God needs more Angels, he starts recruiting good people. Congratulations my brother, you have gotten promoted to a better place. I know in time we will meet again. As for now, the Lightning has gone, and the thunder is silent. Clark you are a great person, but an even better friend. I love you my Friend. Fly High!! Tommie stay strong and continue to be a blessing to everyone. I'm here if you need anything. Love, Thunder

I will miss walking into work on certain nights and seeing his smiling face and ready for the playful banter that we shared on many days and nights i had the pleasure of working with him. Our talks on all things sports especially his love for the Minnesota Wild hockey team. And how as soon as Seattle got our team we would have to go enjoy a game together. Well brother I will still hold you to that deal. His passion for his Sassy Southern Belle Tommie always lite up his face and the same goes for hers when we used to joke around about Clark when he was not here. He would be either sleeping or always at the gym. I will miss our chats and every time i hear about the Wild i will always remember your name. Peace be with you my brother until we meet again.

You were the closest I had to a big brother. I was your little shadow when I was young and admire and loved you always. You were always such a spirit. I will miss our evening talks and singing with you. Mostly I will miss hearing you laugh and seeing your smile. You were a great human and an equally great uncle. I love you uncle Clark. And I promise I will look after the love of your life as best I can., my auntie Tommie. Rest In Peace. The world won’t be the same without you. I know I won’t.
