Jeffrey Clark

August 22, 1951 — December 18, 2022

Provo, Utah

On December 18, 2022, our beloved Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, and Brother, Jeffrey George Clark, 71, of Provo Utah passed away peacefully and was reunited with his beloved wife Karrie.

Jeffrey was born on August 22, 1951, to George and Blanche Clark of Provo Utah.

He married Karrie Katherine Mason on March 19, 1981, and they were later sealed for time and all eternity in the Manti Utah Temple on March 19. 2013 His sweet wife passed away on August 19, 2020.

Jeff spent most of his life in Provo. He attended Grandview elementary, and Dixon Jr. High as well as Provo High School where he graduated in 1969. In his youth, he was a talented pitcher and enjoyed playing baseball and basketball. Jeff was a painter and carpenter by trade. He worked for many companies over the years, his favorite being Hogan Construction. Working for them gave him the opportunity to work on various projects that we have all come to love. Some of which were the BYU Law Library, Provo Peaks Ice Arena, the Utah Olympic Oval at Soldier Hollow, Westfield Elementary, and countless other schools and government buildings throughout Utah county. Many of these projects were extra special to him as he was able to work side by side with many of the men in his family. He worked on some of these projects with both his sons as well as his nephew, brother-in-law, and even with his father-in-law.  Dad was well known for his “finish carpentry”. To him, it was an art and it showed in everything that he made! Dad was a quiet soft-spoken man with a great sense of humor and was always playing a joke on us or doing something to make us laugh.

Dad loved nature, he loved being outside watching the horses run, or sitting with his binoculars watching and listening to the birds sing. Dad also loved camping, fishing, and hunting. Although his health prevented him from taking part in these activities later in life, he would often turn on youtube and enjoy watching other people fishing and hunting. He loved to hear my brother tell him of his own hunting adventures and always looked forward to him sharing his latest adventure with him. He also loved to spend time with his family, especially with his sister at Lake Powell.  They had many adventures out there too many to name. Jeff loved to read. He once read, “Jesus The Christ”, Volumes 1 and 2 of “The Discourses of President Gordon B. Hinkley”, and all 3 volumes of “Doctrines of Salvation” in just one month! Some of his favorite Authors included William J Bennett, Timothy Ballard, Larry McMurtry, Tony Hillerman, and anything written by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.  Jeff also loved to collect old books, always hoping to find some rare gem hidden on a thrift store shelf. His favorite treasure was a book titled, “The Story of The Book of Mormon.”

Jeff was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. While he stepped away from the church for a while when he was younger his Testimony of our Dear Savior Jesus Christ was always strong and eventually led him back to activity. His friends in the Pleasant View 2nd ward helped him find confidence as he was learning more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He loved them dearly for loving and accepting him where he was and helping him to grow in the Gospel. One of his most treasured memories was being surrounded by these friends on the day he was sealed to his sweetheart.

Jeff was preceded in death by his sweet wife Karrie Mason Clark, and his father and mother George and Blanche Clark. His father-in-law, Ervin Mason, and his brother-in-law Curt E. Mason. Jeff is survived by his mother-in-law, Katherine Mason. His sister, Laura Jo (Glen) Marx.  His 3 children, Kathryn Jo (Les) Martin, Derrick (Cacci) Karcich, and Victor (Michelle) Karcich. His adopted Daughter, Shalynda(Damien) Deane. As well as 11 grandchildren, (Kaden, Chandler, Sage, Ford, Coraline, Bronco Karcich, Joyce, Ares, Rosslyn, Scarlett Deane, and Jesse) and 1 great-grandchild, (Oakley Clapie). He is also survived by many other nieces, nephews, and children that he cared for as much as his own. Jeff will be missed by too many others to name as he touched the lives of all those he met.

We would like to express a heartfelt thanks to those at Rocky Mountain Home Health and Hospice who helped him through his final days, especially Carmen and Makayla. He cherished you both!  Thank you.
