Obituary for George Edward Clarke

George Edward Clarke made his journey home to be with his Lord and Savior on November 29, 2023, surrounded by loved ones. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island on October 14, 1952, to George Clarke Jr. and Joan E. Clarke (Little).

He graduated in 1970 from Pilgrim High School, Warwick, RI. He went on to study engineering at Rhode Island Junior College. Growing up on Gaspee Point with his three younger brothers Rick, Kevin, and Bill; he enjoyed spending his days catching eels, digging for clams, and fishing. He maintained his love of the ocean throughout his whole life. George’s family will always remember him as the ultimate handyman; there was nothing he couldn’t fix. He enjoyed riding motorcycles with his son-in-law, Rob, especially when he got his dream motorcycle, a Harley Heritage Softtail. The true source of his pride, however, was his five children and seven grandchildren. For the past seven years, the youngest grandson, Henry (Punkie) was an immense source of joy.

George was preceded in death by his parents, George and Joan Clarke, his brother Rick, and his daughter Jane.
He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Geneveive Clarke of Nashua, NH, his sons Chief Petty Officer (Ret.) Christopher Clarke (Jennifer) of Portsmouth, RI, Matthew Clarke of Nashua, Michelle Clarke of Tucson, AZ, and Dr. Sarah Clauss (Robert) of Nashua, NH.
