GARBER, OK — Terry Lynn Clark, 58, of Garber, Okla., was the son of Woody and Zelma Clark. He was born Oct. 12, 1954, in Enid, Okla., and went to be with Jesus, our Lord and Savior, Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013, after a short bout with cancer at his residence in Garber.

He attended Garfield Elementary in Enid as a child. He later moved to Lamont as a teenager and graduated from Lamont High School in 1972. As a teenager he started playing music and his first band was LA Transit.

In 1972, he married Ramona Baker and to this union three children were born, Terra, Shawn and Megan.

They made their home in Medford, where Terry was active in the Medford Jaycees. He also continued playing music with various bands around the Enid and surrounding areas with various musicians.

Terry married Brenda Johnson Sept. 2, 1994, in Nash, Okla.

He loved spending time with his grandchildren, who with great affection called him Papa. They were the light of his life.

Throughout the years, Terry had a variety of jobs, but he enjoyed truck driving the most.

Terry’s hobbies included fishing, barbecuing, writing music and poetry, but his passion was singing and playing all types of music with his bass guitar.

He will be greatly missed by his friends and family that he touched with his sense of humor and inner spark.

Terry was a member of Antelope Valley Church of the Brethren of Billings, Okla.
