George C. Clark, Jr
Revelation 21:4 – And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Dr. George Cyril Clark Jr., age 84, of Indialantic, FL departed this world for heaven on August 2, 2022 after a courageous battle with Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD).
George was preceded in death by his parents George Cyril, Sr, and Dorothy Lorraine (Kinney). He is survived by Ann Carr (White) his beloved wife of 63 years; his three sons – Dennis (Shawn), James, and Michael (Lorraine); his grandchildren – Racquel, Josh, Tanner, and Ava; and his half-sister, Paula Slobodnyak.
George spent his childhood in West Virginia. After graduating from Greenbrier Military School, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from MIT; a master’s degree in Physics from the University of Miami and a PHD in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University. He was employed by Harris Corporation for most of his career, and was also a primary technical contributor, CTO, and Owner of a medical device company, Thermofield.
George had a passion for life, learning, family, food, and health. He dedicated much of his life to wellness and keeping himself healthy and fit. He was a true gourmet and had the uncanny ability to recall with detail every delicious meal he ever ate. As a loving husband he was devoted to his wife of 63 years, Ann, and acted as her primary caregiver for the last several years of his life. His lifelong philosophy was a simple one -“Learn something new every day”. He challenged himself in that area and became an expert on many subjects. He became proficient in French in his 50’s. He combined his newly acquired language skills with his love for food and enrolled in cooking classes in Paris, France. He and his wife then hosted French foreign-exchange students at their home in Florida.
George was also defined by his career as an electrical engineer. He loved the work that he did and his co-workers. He had an intellect that few possess, and his accomplishments were many and included co-authoring the college textbook Error-Correction Coding for Digital communications.
George was a loving and generous father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He was loved by family and friends and could always be counted on to add something interesting to any conversation. He will be sorely missed.
No funeral services will take place, as George requested. The family appreciates your love and support at this sad time. Thank you to all who helped care for George. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to St. Francis Reflections Hospice.
