Obituary

Gordon F. Clark, 82, of Rockford, IL, passed away on September 28, 2019 surrounded by his family. He was born to Allen and Illa (Wenzel) Clark on February 19, 1937 in Belvidere, Illinois. He ran the Apollo Theater for a number of years and worked for AG Communications in Genoa, IL for awhile before his retirement. Gordon was a member of the Moose Club and he volunteered for the Belvidere VIP group. He drove a school bus and an ambulance for a short time. Gordon loved Nascar, car shows, playing bingo, and visiting Pizza Ranch. But most importantly, he loved spending time with his family, especially his grandkids and great grandkids. He would always have chips and candy with him, so his grandkids gave him the nickname “Papa Chips.”

Gordon will be dearly missed by his children, Kathy (Kathy) Blackmer, Keith (Nancy) Clark, Heidi (Jarret) Loofboro, and Chris Clark; his brother, Bruce Clark; his grandchildren, Courtney Udelhofen, Lukas Blackmer, Whitney Race, Logan Grossen, Jeremy Clark, Jarrid Clark, Cody Clark, Savannah Loofboro, Eli Loofboro; his 6 great grandchildren, Rykurt, Jaxsen, Hayden, Colton, Hailey, and Knox; and numerous cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his infant twin brother, Tommy; and his infant brother, Ronny.
