Larry Vernon Clark
January 1, 1970 - October 16, 2017

On Monday morning, October 16, 2017, Larry Vernon Clark, age 72, passed away with his wife by his side. Born in Baltimore, MD, son of the late Thomas Vernon Clark and the late Frances Struck Clark, Larry was the beloved husband of Barbara Ball Clark, devoted father of Heather Clark Wilson and Michael Thomas Clark, loving father-in-law to Scott Curran Wilson and Bernadette Guenther Clark, and loving grandfather of Kai-nalu Curran Wilson, Lily Corina Wilson, Callie Elizabeth Clark and John Vernon Clark. He was the beloved brother of Frances Bentz and Margaret Lowery, and a dear uncle to nieces and nephews.
Larry was everything a man should be: strong, kind, caring, generous, capable, had a loving outgoing personality, and never met a stranger. He touched many lives and will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered.
A memorial will be held at 2 p.m., November 7, 2017, at the VFW Lodge 7288 in Calabash, NC. A wake celebrating Larry’s life will be held 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, November 18, 2017, at Monaghan’s Pub in Baltimore, MD. Those who wish to offer expressions of sympathy may do so by making a donation to the Humane Society. Please, no flowers.
The family would like to thank the staff of Grand Strand Regional Medical Center and the Lower Cape Fear Hospice for their kind support and care.
Arrangements are in the care of Coastal Cremations, Carolina Shores.

    I wasn’t fortunate enough to know Larry, except for Barb’s love for him, and seeing his support of Barb through her involvement in Waterway Art Association. I feel lucky to have met Barb. We have a history together as WAA members. My heart breaks for her. With sympathy to Barb and her loving family in their time of grief.

    With Love,
    Sharon Bowling

    Al and I were saddened to hear about Larry’s illness and death. We are sorry we will be unable to attend the memorial service on November 7, 2017, but we are in MD babysitting our grandson while his parents are on a cruise. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time.

    Larry was truly one of a kind great, caring, fun guy. He was so outgoing and always had a smile on his face. Everyone loved Larry. I am so sad for Barb and her whole family. Larry will surely be missed

    Larry was one of my best friends and the best man at my wedding. After we bought a condo in Myrtle Beach three years ago we were able to reconnect with Larry and Barb. I’m glad we had the chance to visit with them several times in those three years. Our sympathy goes out to Barb and the family.

    Lou and Cetta Ruzicka
