John M. Clark Sr.

August 8, 1951 – March 17, 2024


John Michael Clark Sr, 72, of Crum Lynne, PA, passed away peacefully on March 17, 2024, in Philadelphia, PA. He was born on August 8, 1951, in Darby, PA.

John was a loving father, brother, and most recently a grandpop. In the short time he was able to spend with his granddaughter, he was able to give her a lifetime of love.  His face lit up every time he saw her.  He lived very simply, enjoying a good Thursday game of backgammon with his friend Franny, a dinner out at the Erin Pub for his favorite surf and turf, bi-yearly trips to Emerald Isle to see his sister and brother in law Jeannette and John, his niece Kelly and nephews Jordan and Nick, and all their children, or simply spending time with family.

John proudly served in the US Army from 1971 to 1977 and continued his service in the Pennsylvania National Guard until 1999. He was a dedicated electrician with IBEW Local 654, retiring after a fulfilling career.

He is survived by his son, John M Clark Jr, his daughter-in-law Megan Clark, his grandchild Juliana Clark, his brother Thomas Clark (married to Susan), his sister Jeannette Lamotta (married to John), his sister Marie Avella (married to Jim), and his many nieces and nephews. John was preceded in death by his father, Thomas Clark, and his mother, Mary Clark.

Memorial services for John will be private and arranged by Griffith Funeral Chapel in Norwood, PA.
