Jeffrey Ferris Clark

Died: Monday, July 15, 2013
Jeffrey Ferris Clark:

Born March 19, 1949, Jeff passed away on July 15, 2013. He was preceded in death by his father, Milton H. Clark, his mother, Doris F Clark and his brother, Milton R. Clark. He is survived by his brother, Bartlett L. Clark, his sister-in-law, Diane L. Clark, his beloved life-long friend, Nancy Holt, and his cherished California friends Cheryl Modica and Elizabeth Burke.

Jeff was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. As a teenager, he was president of his high school class and captain of his high school basketball team. Always a superb student, he was invited to attend Harvard University. He earned three degrees from that prominent institution. Following graduation from Harvard, Jeff moved to California where he joined the prestigious law firm of Cooper White and Cooper, eventually becoming a partner in that firm. After leaving Cooper White and Cooper, Jeff started his own law practice in California where he worked until his untimely death.

Jeff became a familiar figure in Tiburon. His quick wit and friendly disposition won him many friends and admirers. Even in death, Jeff continues to contribute. His organs will be donated to the University of California San Francisco Medical Center so that students there can learn from the effects of the devastating disease that took him from us too soon.

A visitation will be held at the Fernwood Funeral Home in Mill Valley, California at 12:00 PM on July 19. The visitation will be followed by a memorial service at Fernwood at 1:00 PM on the same day. Jeff’s ashes will be interred in the Clark family plot in Clarkston, Michigan at a later date.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the American Cancer Society or to a local chapter of the Humane Society.

Rest in peace Jeffrey Ferris Clark.
