February 15, 2012 GENE FROM PAGE 30 at two different hospitals had taken their toll. His Eternal Reward drew nigh as he struggled for breath & some much-needed rest. That Thursday night around 11:00 pm, we told him, "It is okay for you to go. We love you." He had fought a good fight & he was ready for the Win/Win situation of being healed, or going Home. Both oc- curred within two hours. He was at home, surrounded by Family, that early Friday morning of January 27th, 2012 at 12:55 am as he drew his last breath upon this earth & went on to our FUTURE. . .HEAVEN! And now, as he joins Dale Earnhardt? I'm sure they're discussing NASCAR, because Hey! you gotta have a Good Wrench, right? :) Gene is survived by his Wife, Bernice Marlene Plemmons Clark. Their Daugh- ter, Jeannia Shay Clark Barnett & Husband AND Son, Timothy Allen Barnett. Four Grand Sons; Jonathan Allen Barnett, Mat- thew Wayne Barnett, Jeremy Chad Bar- nett & Clark Landon Barnett. Two Grand Daughters-in-Law; Christine Duckworth Barnett & Ashlee Day Barnett. Five Great Grand Children; Whitney Ann Barnett & Byren Jacob Barnett of Michigan, Tess Ni- cole Barnett, Matthew Wayne Barnett Jr. & Eian Timothy-Donald Barnett. He is predeceased by his Mother; Azalee Moore Duckett, Father; Zade McElreath & Brother; David Roger Moore. He has six siblings; Myrtle Aileen Moore Thomasson, James Kermit Moore Jr, Martha Addie Belle Moore Frazier, Roy Carl Moore, Rich- ard Carrol Moore & Walter Don Moore. He lovingly claimed NUMEROUS Sister-in- Laws, Brother-in-Laws, Nieces, Nephews & Cousins as Dear Family Members. His Memorial Service will be held Saturday, March 10th, 2012 at 4:00pm in the Quartzsite First Assembly of God lo- cated at 665 Tyson. Please come prepared to share an amusing story, or tell a tale about Gene, as we will be making a DVD of the ser- vice to share with Family & Friends across the Country. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate years, he reached the "Pinnacle of Perfec- tion" by scoring his first, & only, 300 game, netting him a gold Champion ring as proof. Trophies. . . ribbons. . .plaques. ALL attest- ed to the fact, but mostly? He was known for being "Genuine", "Fun", a "Prankster", a "Great Man" & a "Good Friend". Quite a tribute, isn't it? The weeks of non-stop coughing & stays Immediately following the Service, we will retire to the desert for a "Hallelujah" Hobo Stew! If you're not familiar with what that is, you need to bring a chair, a spoon, a non-alcoholic drink & a can of some sort of canned good item (one per person, please) which we will then combine all into a pot. While it becomes "stew" over the fire we will sit & visit. After that, we will take time to Eat, Enjoy & Share more memories of Gene Clark. Husband. Father. Friend. Our Daring, Fun-Loving Man of Great Adventure WILL BE GREATLY & SORELY MISSED because, he never knew a Stranger. . .only a Friend that he didn't know his name. Wednesday Bingo. The doors open at 5pm.
