Harvey Edmund Clark, Janesville, WI (1940-2014)
August 16,1940 - April 3, 2014
Harvey Edmund Clark, 73, of Janesville, WI, was born August 16,1940, to Harvey and Genevieve (Urban) Clark in Milwaukee, WI. On April 3, 2014, surrounded by his loving wife and children, he left this life to join his parents in the loving arms of Jesus Christ after a year-long battle with lung cancer. Harvey worked for American Motors, Schlitz Brewery and for Metal Containers of Fort Atkinson until his muscular dystrophy forced his retirement in 2002. Harvey whiled away the hours of his retirement engaging in his many passions. He was an avid bird watcher, and spent many hours researching and planning his beautiful gardens. He was also an accomplished fisherman, and he loved baseball, NASCAR, country music and his kindred spirit, Mr. Elvis Presley.
Harvey is survived by his wife, Cheryl (Waldhart); three sons from his first marriage: Scott (Brenda) of East Troy, WI, Mark (Deb) of Mukwonago, WI, Dean of San Francisco, CA; four step-children: Shane (Jenna) Horn of Derby, KS, Cindy Terrill of Wichita, KS, Melinda Horn of Janesville, and Rebecca Horn of Baton Rouge, LA; four grandchildren: Ashley (Casey Davis), Chantelle, Brian and Amanda; five step-grandchildren: Channing Tate, Hannah Terrill and Hayley, Jacob and Brody Horn; and one unborn great-grandchild. Harvey is also survived by a brother, Richard (Kathy) of Marshall; a sister, Diane (late Robert) Brogli of Germantown, WI; and numerous other relatives. Harvey was preceded in death by his parents, his mother having passed away on March 24, 2014.
