Mark Clayton Clark 1960-2013

GREENUP — Mark Clayton Clark, 53, of Wurtland, passed away Monday, Nov. 19, 2013, in Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital in Russell.

Mr. Clark was born Jan. 16, 1960, in Ashland, a son of the late John W. and Conita Conley Clark.

Mark was a proud graduate of Boyd County High School and an avid supporter of the Lions football team.

Mark had a huge heart and genuinely cared for others.

He was also preceded in death by his brothers, Roger Clark and James “Jimmy” Clark; a sister, Loretta Kay Todd; and a special friend, Emma Jean Miller.

Mark is survived by his children, Travis Michael Clark of Ashland, Adam Tyler Clark and wife Megan Brown-Clark of Morgantown, W.Va., and Allison MacKenzie Clark of Louisville; a brother, Curtis “Johnny” Clark of Catlettsburg; sisters Cheryl Rowe and Shelia Young, both of Catlettsburg, Brenda Frisby, Rita Toney and Kathy McDermott, all of Ashland; and the mother of his children, Becky Clark.
