Terry J. Clark age 63 of Naples, FL. and formerly of Algonac, MI. passed away January 12, 2019 in his home.  He was born May 27, 1955 in Mt. Clemens, MI. to the late Allen and Agnes (nee Chuhran) Clark. He married Cynthia G. Marino on July 16, 1988 in St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, Mayfield, OH.

Terry graduated from Algonac High School in 1973, Wayne State University in 1983 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, and the Florida Gulf Coast University TIP Program in Education. His professional career included Marshalls Dept. Store, Area Manager, Melville Corporation- Regional Internal Auditor, Gregory Boat Company, Sales, Detroit, MI., Joe Rinke Pontiac-Oldsmobile-Chevrolet Dealership – Sales Manager, St. Clair, MI., Larry Koss Buick-Pontiac-GMC, Richmond MI., Bill McDonald Ford, General Sales Manager & Executive Sales Manager, St. Clair, MI., Devoe Automotive Group – Used Car Manager for Buick-Pontiac-GMC, Naples, FL., Bob Taylor, Sales Person, Naples, FL., Collier County Public Schools, Lely Elementary, 5th Grade Teacher, Naples, FL., Friends of Foster Children Forever- Elementary Tutor, Naples, FL.,  and 8 years School Rep at Lely Elementary & 2nd Vice President to CCEA, Naples, FL.

Terry’s interests included Automobiles, his love of sports and his love for every Michigan Sports Team, Political News Junky (especially Tim Russert), Songwriting, Guitar, Piano, the Burnwood Band in the Algonac area, and boating. Terry could tell jokes better than anyone, and always had one ready, most notably when you needed it most.  His wit could be sometimes off color and almost always irreverent, but always left you in stitches. He cared deeply about those who drew a shorter straw.  This was especially obvious with his students, and he would fearlessly fight anyone, anywhere on their behalf.  Terry was a devoted brother, husband, and friend, who never pulled punches, but who could be counted on to always come through, and to point out your foibles with kindness. His wit, charm, and kindness will be sorely missed.

Terry is survived by his loving wife Cindy of over 30 years, siblings Penny (Art) Arduin, Port Sanilac, MI., and Naples, FL., Tom (Patty) Clark, Kaneohe, HI, Pat (Lyle) Hoover, Naples, FL., Larry (Kathleen) Clark, Golden, CO., his in-laws Dino and Ida Marino, sisters and brothers-in-law Denise Clark, Anna Marino, John (Angela) Marino, and Renato (Sandra) Marino,  nieces and nephews Tom Clark and his children Britney (Sean) Greener, Dylan Clark, and Brooke Clark, Shannon Clark, Sean (Trini) Clark and their children Malie Clark and Kala Clark,  Jeffrey Hoover,  Keith Hoover,  Kirsten (Patrick) Frederick and their children Keegan Frederick and Nathan Frederick, Meredith Clark and her son Coleman Clark, Ben Clark, Jeramiah Clark and his daughter Paloma, Gabriella Marino, Domenica Marino, Julia Marino, Sofia Marino, Isabella Marino, Marco Marino, and Renato Marino.  He was preceded in death by a brother Michael Clark.
