Curtis Clark

Friday, June 12, 2015

Curtis Clark, formerly of Mountain Home, died peacefully on Sunday, March 22, 2015, in Bend, Ore., of complications related to heart valve dysfunction. Curtis was the son of Charles W. Clark (Lt. Col., USAF, retired) and Clara A. Clark Walborn, both of whom predeceased Curtis.

After graduating from MHHS in 1974, Curtis joined the Army and was honorably discharged before returning to Idaho. He lived several years in Boise before moving to Seattle where he met and married Lisa Landgraf in May 1995.

While in Seattle, Curt became very active in music and later in precision welding. Curt and Lisa decided a little less rain and a little more sunshine would suit them better and relocated in Carson City, Nev.

While in Nevada, Curt enjoyed Masonic work, rebuilding vintage motorcycles, and swimming. The long commute from southern Nevada to Seattle to continue commissioned welding work necessitated a more north westerly home. Curt and Lisa chose Bend, Ore., where they have lived for the last 11 years.

Curtis is survived by his wife, Lisa; brother John (Sue) of Henderson, Nev.; sisters Carole Ibsen of South Hadley, Mass., and Betty Zimmerman (Buzz) of Jerome, Idaho, and their families; along with many nieces, nephews, two aunts, one uncle and numerous cousins.

A memorial service for Curt will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 27, at St. James Episcopal Church in Mountain Home. In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation may be made to St. Charles Palliative Care Program, 2500 N. E. Neff Road, Bend, OR 97701 or online at
