Lionel David Clark
September 19, 1935 – August 13, 2022

It is with much love and sadness that the family of Lionel David Clark (1935 to 2022) wishes to announce his peaceful passing at his home in Fall River.
He is survived by his wife, Margret Jean Clark (Dickson); children, Colin Clark, Loralie Clark and Pamela Stephens-Clark; grandchildren, Kaylee and Jessica Stephens-Clark; and several nieces and nephews.
Lionel was born in Plaster Rock, New Brunswick to parents Verna and Jack Clark. He was the youngest of six children. As a young man, Lionel loved all that the rural community outdoors had to offer, including canoeing, fishing and guiding on the Tobique River. Lionel left home at the age of 17 to pursue his dream of flying. Lionel joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and served for three years, continuing his training with Fredericton Aviation. After marrying his lifelong partner in 1962, Lionel moved to Gander, Newfoundland to fly for Eastern Provincial Airlines for four years, flying countless types of aircraft (Cessna, Beaver, Otter, Canso water bomber to name a few) serving all remote areas of the Atlantic. Canada. Later Lionel flew commercial passenger service for Eastern Provincial, Canadian Pacific and later Canadian Airlines to almost every airport in North America. In addition to his career as a commercial pilot, Lionel pursued more private and adventurous excursions. These included flying planes around the world with his lifelong friend Lester Addie, piloting seaplanes to his favorite fishing lodges in Labrador, and countless jaunts to whatever little airstrip he could be invited. After his racing career, Lionel spent his time traveling the roads of North America in his motorhome or sailing the oceans with Holland America. We’re grateful he wasn’t the captain of any cruise ship, as his piloting of his RV often results in it hitting the garage or knocking down the gutters in the house.
Lionel lived a full life. He loved being around his friends and family and cherished the social gatherings where he offered all of us his endless stories, often in far too much detail and with no story ever repeating itself. He could often be heard having long debates on the global issue with his nephew Bill Miller in Nictau NB, but no resolution was ever formalized. Lionel was an avid fisherman, hunter, hoarder, handyman (but with quality issues), and an expert on all subjects (according to him). Lionel was known for his expert palate, where he could enjoy a meal of smoked kippers paired with molasses-coated pizzas…and wash it down with $4 wine from Costco.
The family would like to give special thanks to family friends Gerry, Wayne, Bob and Todd for their time in taking Lionel out for road trips and lunches.
Lionel lived his life without borders and saw nothing insurmountable. In his later years, Lionel was confined to a motorized wheelchair, but continued to wreak havoc on the neighborhood. He was always on the streets of the neighborhood patrolling and visiting neighbors, often getting stuck in the mud and requiring a tow. He was quick-witted and always enjoyed a good drink and a laugh during happy hour. He will be greatly missed.
All donations can be made to the Victorian Order of Nurses and the Red Cross. There will be no visitation or funeral service at this time. A celebration of life will take place at a time and location to be announced.
