Received from Todd Beck

Sorry for your loss, Clark made every student a better person and citizen. Whenever I am with his former students it seems the conversation always gravitates towards sharing a memorable story or event that involved him. Very few teachers have such a positive impact on their students, I count myself as one of the lucky ones.

Received from Bill & Olivia Lucas

So sorry to hear of Clark's passing.
He definately was one of a kind.
Bill and I were fortunate to have had him for a teacher; then as a friend and Master of Ceremonies at our wedding .
When I joined the work force at Irvine School, he returned to Irvine from Schuler School to teach Jr and Sr. High.It was so good to see him..
Clark had a way of making a bad day into a good day.
He took time to talk, to compliment, to share a joke or a laugh any time he was around.
To you Cheryl, and your family, Clark was a "one of a kind" man. Bill and I have great memories of him...a man to be proud of.
Hugs for you Cheryl and your family..

Cheryl, Kirby, Tom, Ryan, Jayne and families - our deepest sympathies to you all. We’ve had so many years with your family - from the Hilda Schuler days for me to hanging with Kirby and the boys around your house for Steve. Clark was a great educator, a great friend, but most importantly, an awesome husband, father and grandfather. You’re in our thoughts and prayers.


Received from Gerry Carter

To Cheryl and family: My sincere condolences to all of you. When my husband was alive we spent many a happy Sunday afternoon with the Findley’s and Clark would always be frying up some of his homemade sausages! Clark will be remembered for his charm, his huge heart and his passion for education. I hope all the joy he brought to others is a comfort to you now. Gerry Carter

Received from Linda Matsumoto

Condolences to you, Cheryl and family. I was one of many that were fortunate to have worked with Clark as a principal and a colleague. He had a no-nonsense approach to management when it was needed, but that never detracted from his strong skills of relationship building. Education needs many more Clark Findley's!
