Eugene A. Clark, 79, Green Bay, formerly of Pulaski, passed away Saturday, June 5, 2021, at his home unexpectedly but peacefully. He and his loving wife Judy would have celebrated 51 years of marriage together the following day. He was born on May 7, 1942, in Antigo to the late Alfred and Adeline (Becker) Clark. He served his country with the United States Marine Corps from 1961 until his honorable discharge in 1965. On June 6, 1970; he married Judith Bernarde in Menomonee Falls. Eugene worked as an over the road truck driver and was then employed at Carver Boat for over 20 years as a cabinet maker.
He gave up everything for his children and his family, and that self-sacrificial love and dedication set an example for us all. His honorable actions and integrity commanded respect from all who knew him.
He taught his kids and grandkids water-skiing, archery and how to work on cars, and he was always ready to help with anything that needed doing, and in most cases, even show you how it was done. He could fix everything from the smallest toy to a broken heart.
He enjoyed fishing, hunting and everything outdoors. Children and dogs gravitated towards his calm and loving presence. Eugene was incredibly quick-witted and enjoyed having a good laugh, always with a twinkle in his eye.
He is survived by his loving wife, Judy; children, Debbie (Steve) Wiesman, Lee Clark, Todd Clark and Stacey Clark; honorary son, Lee Wiesman; grandchildren, Zach (Christine) Wiesman, Brittany (Aaron) Ullmer, Casey Wiesman, Chelsey Wiesman, Tyler (Tara) Clark, Hayley Clark, Tehya Clark, Micah Wiesman, Zoe Wiesman and Grace Wiesman; great-grandchildren, Caden Wiesman, Aliyah Wiesman, William Ullmer, Emma Ullmer, Jace Wiesman, Nicholas Ullmer, Madelyn Ullmer and honorary great-granddaughter, Ali Winkler; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Sandy (Bill) Gierach, Dick (Anna) Bernarde, Chuck (Mardi) Bernarde, Sandy Bernarde, Sue Lederhause and Dorthy (Dale) Dahlen; dear friends, the Gawryleski and Heinz families; and many other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
