Obituary for Leslie Alfred Clark

Franklin -- Leslie Alfred Clark, 93, lifelong resident of Franklin, passed away on October 31, 2018 at home after a long and productive life. He was born April 29, 1925 in Franklin, the son of Clyde R. and Hattie V. (Harriman) Clark.

One of the “Greatest Generation”, Les served in the U.S. Navy in WWII from December 1943 to December 1945 aboard the USS MacKenzie in the Mediterranean.

In 1953, he married Sylvia (Bunny) Nickerson and they raised their family on the Hog Bay Road. Les was a craftsman, working at carpentry and as a maintenance man at the College of the Atlantic for over 20 years. He had a passion for model aviation, from a young age, building many fine models throughout his life. Later in life, Les was a voracious reader, quickly finishing a book on his favorite subjects of anything military, history or aviation.

Predeceased by his wife, Bunny in 1995, Leslie is survived by 2 sons, Timothy and wife, Lynne of Blue Hill, and Kenneth of Franklin; 3 grandsons, Kyle Clark of Eastbrook, Ethan and Evan Clark of San Antonio, Texas; sister, Roseanna Starks of South China, Maine; and many nieces and nephews.

Visiting hours will be held Thursday, November 8, 2018 from 6pm to 8pm at Jordan - Fernald Funeral Home in Ellsworth, Maine. Graveside services will be held Friday, November 9, 2018 at 10:30am at Bayview Cemetery, Franklin, Maine.
