TOPIC: Its with great sadness

Its with great sadness 7 months, 3 weeks ago #3541

It's with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Al Clark. Al passed last night, after a long courageous battle with cancer. For those who didn't know Al, he was Billy Caprara's crew man who went to the line every week with Billy. He also campaigned a purple C Stock (I believe) Barracuda with Todd Touhey. Al was a hell of a nice guy who would help anyone, and a handshake that could crush a bowling pin.

Al, you will be missed, my friend! God speed.

The calling hours will be from 4pm - 7pm at # 7 North Park Street in Adams, NY. Take Rte 81 to Adams, go EAST in to town, pass over Route 11, and North Park is just up on your left by Dollar General. The funeral will be at 11AM Friday morning. Al was a hell of a man, and will surely be missed by all that knew him. He was a great friend and partner to me, and may he rest in peace, and know his suffering is over. God speed my friend.
