My Dad, Ronald Norman Clarke, passed away on June 30, 2010 between 8 and 9 P.M. He was a scholar, a salesman, a raconteur, and a man with a deep enthusiasm for life, and for the unknown. He read Shakespeare aloud happily (and well), became an expert in antique prints in his retirement, and he lived with great heart. Dad could also be sentimental about some things, a fact not everyone appreciated or valued.
