Robert ‘Bob’ Clark


Robert ‘Bob’ R. Clark, 83, of Superior, died Monday December 12, 2022, at Essentia-St. Mary’s Hospital in Duluth.

Bob was born in Detroit, MI on Feb. 22, 1939, the son of Billy and Marge (Stong) Clark. He served his country enlisting in the US Navy and was stationed in France on the Mediterranean Sea. He was part of the Officer’s Combo which allowed him to perform with his band in places, such as Italy and throughout the Mediterranean.

He was an excellent cook by trade, a cable tv service tech, and most recently a school bus driver.

Bob had a passion for music and played the rhythm guitar. He also enjoyed learning Spanish, working out, fixing things and reading how-to manuals, going fishing with his son, camping, but his true passion was spending time with family. Bob would often have the room in laughter with his great sense of humor.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Bill Clark, and sister-in-law, Linda Conkright.

Bob is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Nancy; children, Patty Corona, Robert (Windie) Clark, and Garrett Clark all of California; stepdaughters, Sarah (John) Selleck of Ham Lake, MN, Molly (Rick) Warring of Superior, Katie (Chad) Pavlich of Gordon, WI, and Bonnie (Charlie) Maliska of Superior; sister-in-law, Teri Clark of Las Vegas; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, and special friends, Jean and Don Miller of Superior.

A Celebration of Bob’s life will be held at a later date.
