Karl Lee Clark

Karl Lee Clark, 75, passed away March 12th, 2019 at his home in Milford, NE. He was born Oct. 13th 1943 in South Boardman, MI.  Karl served in the US Army as a proud member of the 1st Infantry Division ‘Big Red 1’. Karl filled many employment positions including the Pontiac Motor Division, HP Lau Company, National Bank of Commerce, as well as the City of Lincoln Parks and Recreation for over 25 years.  Karl was united in holy matrimony to Linda Oaklund on September 1st 1984 in Elwood, NE.

  1. Karl, you were my Uncle, but, more that that you were my friend, my teacher, my confidant, and my hunting buddy. You will be missed. To Linda, Carla, Chris, and Mitchell, I am so sorry for your loss. I will always be here for you anytime you need anything. I love you all. Scott

  2. God bless you alll. We will miss Karl and his love for the outdoors and the great stories he had in his experiences.

  3. Dear Clark family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Karl. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.
