Dirk Clark1968 - 2022
Dirk Quinn Clark age 54 of Moltke Township passed away peacefully on August 10, 2022 at home in the presence of his family, after a nearly two year battle with cancer, his fight was brave and his departing dignified.
He was born May 2, 1968 in East Tawas to Archie and Wilma (Baldwin) Clark.
Dirk grew up predominately in Arenac County where his friends and family monitored the progress of his struggle and today mourn his loss. Dirk was a U of M football fan, an avid outdoorsman and fisherman and Nascar fanatic. Throughout his whole life, Dirk was a standup guy, always ready to help family and friends alike in times of need; his departing will leave a deep scar that only time can heal.
Dirk is survived by his daughter, Jessica Lacky of Florida; four grandchildren; mother, Wilma Baldwin-Krager of Rogers City; three siblings, Jack (Joanne) Clark of New Jersey, Kelsie (Andrea) Clark of Lachine and Marquita (Steve) Malette of Wyoming, all of whom were at his side during his final days. Dirk had an extended family and friends all grieve his passing.
He was preceded in death by his father, Archie; brother, Archie “Dutch”; and all four grandparents.
Per Dirk’s final wish, cremation has taken place. Family will announce a celebration of life at a later date via social media.
Dirk would want us to thank the staff of the cancer center in Alpena and the Hospice of Michigan nurses that aided him.
