Obituary for James T. Clark

James Thomas Clark
Bangor-Orland
James Thomas Clark, 88, of the Veterans Home in Bangor, Maine, previously of Orland, ME, passed away on August 8, 2018, from a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. He was born on 3/31/1930 in North Hampton, MA. Son if the late William Cornelius Clark and Nathalie (Coffron) Clark of Hartford, CT.
James, is preceded in death by his two sons William Cornelius Clark, and James Michael Clark of Springfield MA, his longtime partner Dorothy “Dotty” Burnham of Orland, ME, one sister Barbra (Clark) Federko, two brothers, Thomas “Tommy” Clark, and Richard “Dicky” Clark, all from CT.
James is survived by his two daughters, Victoria Clark of East Longmeadow, MA, Christina Clark of Ledyard, CT, and two grandchildren Elliott Stevens of Agawam, MA, and Samantha Stevens of East Longmeadow, MA. He also leaves behind three great grandchildren Brynn, William and Aurora, two sisters, Nathalie (Clark) Lasselle and Susan (Clark) Winchell, both from Newington, CT, one brother William Clark and his wife Mary Clark of Wethersfield, CT, a special nephew James Bills from E. Hartford, Ct, and a close personal friend William “Henry” Wascholl of Orland, ME, and many other nieces, nephews and friends.
James was very proud of his Military service in the U.S. Army from 1947 to 1952 and later joined the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary when he lived in Florida. James always loved the area around where his late grandfather Thomas H. Coffron of Orland, ME, lived and who also was in the Military during the Spanish American war in the U.S. Navy.
The Burial was at Backridge Cemetery in Orland, ME, on August 11, 2018 and a Military Funeral service was held in his honor.

From daughter Victoria,
My father was always a person who would help anybody with a building project, learning so much along the way that he built himself two homes with his own hands. He was the original “Jack of all trades”, who never woke up a morning in his life without a list of projects to get done that day, and get them done he did.
Of his military service Dad was most proud, gaining friends he kept in touch with most of his life. His time in the U.S. Army as a musician entertaining troops, and his years with the Coast Guard Auxiliary in Florida were some of his happiest times. Until the last few years of my father’s life he had a wall in his home filled with photographs dedicated to fellow service members he had known who were not longer among the living.

From daughter Christina,
Dad I should have told you this when you were able to appreciate it but I always loved you, even when I did not like you so much. Our relationship certainly can’t go in the history books but I did love the time we spent together and specially cherished each weekend you took me camping as a young child. You may think you’ve not added value to my life but this would be wrong. My appreciation and empathy for animals was taught to me by your love of cats and the way you treated them with patience and understanding. I’ve never seen an animal listen to a human’s direction like your cats did, coming directly when you called no matter where they were. You were a true “cat whisperer”. I know my love for music was inspired by listening for hours on end to big band music at your house on weekends. I’ll always treasure the song “Love and Marriage”, singing it inexhaustibly until I to finally tired of it. My love of Maine was due to your devotion to the Bangor area where Grandma Clark’s father resided. I remember your genealogy “classes” visiting the Maine grave sites along with your many stories of Grandma Clark. Staying at your home in Maine was like heaven to me, as I always slept best at your house. Whenever crossing the state border into Maine, I know I am in a place where I could spend the rest of my life and I do thank you for that.
Dad I’ve missed you all of my life and now I’ll miss you forever.

From Nephew James Bills,
You may be gone from my sight… but you are never gone from my memory and my heart! You are a self-taught man who could fix anything, build anything, and design anything! You were the ultimate handyman! I’m glad in later years I've learned you're love of music it made that friendship better than one could imagine being 35 years different in age. It's nice knowing the man that I have grown to admire and respect as a builder, uncle, friend and mentor is no longer suffering with a disease that has taken everything away that has made the man I had known. If we only had started 30 years earlier just imagine what we could have done over the years and what we could have taught each other, but I'm grateful for the times we had! I'll miss the long talks and your infectious laugh and reading your mind when you didn't think anyone could. Just know that the best parts of you will always be remembered and will live on in the most amazing ways through Christina and Vicky! Rest in peace my dear uncle, friend, mentor, you will surely be missed. Good-bye for now, until we meet again.

Love your nephew -Jim
