It is with profound sadness that we share the passing of John Allan Clark ("Johnny") on Friday, May 28, 2021.

Johnny was born in 1951 in Guelph to parents Malcolm and Donalda Clark of Puslinch. A tall and strong fifth generation farmer, he proudly farmed alongside his brother Jimmie for 52 years. Family, friends, and community members always appreciated his generosity and kindness in sharing his bounty - especially the annual squash harvest.

Johnny enjoyed playing baseball, cheering on the Maple Leafs, and debating politics. He was an avid supporter of harness racing in Ontario and previously owned a number of standardbred horses. Johnny will be remembered as a passionate conversationalist who enjoyed talking to everyone he crossed paths with.

Johnny will be deeply missed by his brother James Clark ("Jimmie"), sister Helen Dunbar, and brother-in-law Fred. Uncle Johnny will always have a special place in the hearts of his niece Leah and nephew Keith.

A private service will be held with the immediate family. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Guelph General Hospital Foundation in the name of John Allan Clark (519-837-6422 or

I will never forget in the early 80's when John and Jimmie asked my Dad (Robert McCaig) and I to fill their silo with the corn crop on the home farm. We did this for a couple of years. Both Brothers were amazed that with the equipment we had we could do this in one and half days. Both Dad and I really enjoyed working with them. The one year was the year Ontario Hydro had wrecked their field putting up the huge hydro tower and the compensation was not adequate to say the least for their Dad to accept. The Hydro Exec's were there that day and they wanted to have a ride in my big tractor. I was happy to tell them that until they paid what they should for the damage they could go to "h,,,)! They seemed surprised and shocked! However the part I remember the most was going in for lunch on the two days and having a 9 course meal that their Mom had prepared! It was almost impossible to stay awake driving the tractor in the afternoon! Their Dad was there in his favorite chair listening and chatting with us during the fabulous meal. My Dad and I both thought, what a wonderful family the Clark's were!!! Wishing the family all the best. David McCaig.

John Clark — a gentle gentleman, respected farmer, devoted brother and uncle, salt of the earth neighbour and a shocking loss to our Puslinch community. Loved his smile! Sharing in your sadness as you remember, John. May God surround your family with His love at this time.

To Helen, Fred, family and Jimmy: It is with great sadness that Bill and I heard of Johnny's passing and of Jimmy's struggle. Our circle of family and friends seems to be getting smaller, another of the old neighbors and family. Our prayers for Jimmy.
