ASHLAND – Joseph “Joey” Clark, 33, died unexpectedly Wednesday evening, Nov. 6, 2013, as a result of a motor vehicle accident. He was born Aug. 13, 1980, in Presque Isle, a son of Brenda (Moro) Clark and Guy Clark.
Joey graduated from Ashland Community High School in 1999. He attended former Northern Maine Technical College for diesel mechanics and welding. He was the owner and operator of Triple J. Trucking, Inc. for several years. He also worked with his grandfather at M.T.K. Inc. for many years. His boys were his life. He enjoyed skating, hunting, fishing and camping with them. Whatever time he could spend with the boys was precious to him. They always came first. He was a great Dad.
There are so many memories that we can all share as a grandson, son, brother, nephew, cousin and friend. One always saw Joey with a little grin on his face and everyone knew that if you ever needed help Joey was always the first one there. His special saying that will always be remembered was “your welcome very much.”
