The Lord called Joseph Clark home on November 13, 2019, at the age of 68.  Joe was born January 1, 1951 in Chicago, Illinois.  He was one of 8 boys.  He was a resident of Indianapolis, IN for many years.

Joe served his country honorably as a United States Marine fixed wing aircraft mechanic for five years (1970-1975). Joe loved spending time at his favorite coffee shop, playing slots at the closest casino, and his big dog 'Blue'.

Joe was preceded in death by his mother Matty Oneta (Wilford) Clark and father Ralph Clark; his brothers Lee Clark, Tommy Clark, Donald Clark, and George Clark. Joe is survived by his brothers Ron (Caralyn) Clark, Ralph (Elaine) Clark, and his twin Jimmy (Darylin) Clark; his children Steve Clark and Freddie (Amanda) Clark; 6 grandchildren; and to be expected soon, a great grandchild.

 "Fair Winds and Following Seas."
