Raymond S. Clark passed away May 14, 2018. Ray had many titles throughout his life including Boat Captain, Electrical Engineer, Square Dance Caller, Volunteer Fire Chief, Jack-of-all Trades and Pastor. He was best known as a husband, father, brother-in-law, gran-daddy and great gran-daddy. Ray worked at Sandia National Labs for 30 years. Ray was active in the Bernalillo County Fire Department and Fire District #6, International Association of Fire Chiefs, United Methodist Church, Disciples of Christ Church and NM Shriners’. He is survived by wife his of 56 years, Beth; his daughter, Bett Clark (Chrissie Gerding); daughter, Rebecca Jee (Chuck); grandson, Raymond Jee (Clara); granddaughter, Monique Jee (Chris Chavez); great grandchildren, Aiden and Adele Jee; and special friends, Troy and Marsha Humble, and Lorenzo and Jen Abrahm.
He was our rock and the wisest man any of us ever knew. The most important lesson he ever taught us was to love everyone unconditionally whether a random couple in a restaurant or stranger walking down the street and he showed compassion for everyone. Ray believed in working hard and putting your heart and soul into everything you do. He always said to leave room for dessert and taught his grandkids that it was OK to eat ice cream first. We will always cherish the plethora of memories we have of him and hope his friends will do the same. The family wishes to give deep and heartfelt thanks to the staff of Kaseman Hospice who assisted in the transition of his life with loving care, support and hugs.
Ray has been cremated and all are invited to his Celebration of Life to be held on Saturday, June 9, 2018, 2:00 p.m. at Los Altos Christian Church, 11900 Haines Street NE. Ray gave generously to the community and were great supporters of Shriner’s Medical, Shriner’s Hospital for Children and Veterans Integration Services, Albuquerque, NM. Memorial donations may be made to those charities or the charity of your choice.
