Bryce Ronald Clark, Sr., age 77 of Stanton, passed away on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 in Grand Rapids at Spectrum Health Butterworth.
Bryce was someone who loved being outdoors, he especially liked hunting, fishing, and riding his four-wheeler. After working in the tool and die industry for 25 years, Bryce and his wife, Martha, owned and operated the Silver Lake Resort in the U.P. for nearly 20 years. While they owned the resort, Bryce could often be found sneaking off during the day to do some “P.R” work by taking someone on a fishing trip or baiting for bears. He had a tremendous sense of humor and he loved to laugh and make others around him laugh. He was a big sports fan and enjoyed watching all his favorite teams from Michigan compete. He also loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them. It didn’t matter if he was teaching his grandkids to play euchre, how to shoot a bow or going on fishing trips with them, he simply enjoyed having them around. Bryce also proudly served his country in the United States Navy and was a member of the Stanton American Legion and the Sheridan VFW.
Surviving Bryce is his wife of 55 years, Martha Clark of Stanton; daughter, Christine Clark (Bill Langill) of Iron Mountain; sons, Bryce II (Qinzhen) Clark of Richardson, Texas and David (Carrieann) Clark of Iron Mountain; grandchildren, Jessica (Ryan) Kightlinger of Brighton; Heather Clark (Mark Coffman) of Sturgis; Rebecca Clark of Ludington; Justin Clark of Iron Mountain; Kaitlin Clark of Iron Mountain; Corissa Clark of Petoskey; HannaH Clark of Iron Mountain; great grandchildren, Liam, Mason, Katherine and Nicole; brothers, Bryon (Carol) Clark of Albuquerque, New Mexico and Daniel Kinnick of Madison Heights and several aunts, nieces, nephews, and cousins as well as his lifelong friend, Clifford (Kip) Brooks of Stanton.
Bryce is preceded in death by his mother, Hulda (Williams) Henry and his father, Bryce E. Clark.
