Saint Meinrad Class: O 1966

Charles L Clark, 79, of Dayton, Ohio died on Monday, June 10, 2019 at University of Cincinnati Medical Center after a brief illness.

Throughout his life and career he has been an intelligent, gentle soul who has touched so many lives. We lost a family treasure who was a great man.

Charley went to High School and his first 2 years of college at St. Meinrad Archabbey Monastery in St. Meinrad, Indiana and finished his college career at the University of Colorado with a Bachelors of Science in 1964. He enlisted into the Air Force in 1961 and after achieving his BS degree advanced to Officer Training School and was proud of his Mustang status. He left active service after 8 years and continued to serve his country in the Civil Service at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base until his retirement in 1994. It was a real treat to be able to go through the Air Force Museum with him and hear “inside” stories on many of the artifacts therein. We salute you and we’ll freshen our drinks in your honor, Charley!
