Chuck was born in Pittsboro, NC in Chatham County on March 16,1963, to the late Charles Clark and Geraldine Joyce Yates Clark. He was their middle child and only son and best known as “Chuck”.
Early in life he worked diligently in school and was repeatedly praised as an “Exceptional Student” throughout his academic reports. He graduated with Honors from Northwood High School in 1981 and proceeded to continue studying at NC State University and later Wake Technical Community College. Chuck pursued his passion for electrical engineering and became a well-respected, highly-skilled, and specialized Electrical Technician in his field. He worked at CP&L for 10 years prior to an additional 27 years at NCEMC. He was one of very few professionals in the state who could do his job. Outside of work, he was a well-studied, self-educator, and jack of all trades. Chuck could build anything he set his mind to with amazing ease.
Most importantly, Chuck constantly sought to know God throughout his life. He was always a dedicated father that loved his children more than anything. He always cared and made known his desire to bless them with his entire life. He was a strong and dedicated provider for his family. He consistently stood up for what he believed in and maintained always being a man of his word. He was an American patriot and valued our constitutional freedoms deeply.
He led his sons to Christ, all at a young age, while simultaneously being very active in serving in local churches. He successfully raised three strong, Christ-loving, compassionate men that gave him six grandchildren to date. He always gave positive affirmations to his sons ensuring they always had faith in themselves. He taught his sons about good work ethic when they were young which helped them provide for their own families today. He always encouraged his sons to believe in their goals and focus with intensity to make those dreams a reality.
Chuck was known to give “the best strong hugs” by his loved ones. He loved spending time with his sons and grandchildren. Some of his best memories shared were ones of him traveling to the beach and mountains, playing sports, boating on Jordan Lake, and family gatherings with his family. Family time was very important to him.
