STEVEN PAUL CLARK
April 27, 1949 – September 21, 2021
Steve passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at the age of 72. Beloved husband of 51 years to Brenda Joan Clark (nee Smith). Loving father of Jennifer Robyn Smith (Allen), to be reunited with son Christopher Steven (predeceased). Doting grandpa to Kathryn (Ben), Amanda and Christopher. Predeceased by parents Paul and Fern Clark. Will be missed by brother-in-law Blaine Smith (Laura), niece Kimberly and nephew Robin (Jean), as well as many other extended family and friends. Steve was a teacher, who spent the later part of his career in many of the schools throughout the Island until his retirement in 2009. He especially enjoyed his time with the special education program where he had the special gift of patience, which allowed him to assist the children to learn and grow. He was a gifted musician, and taught music in Fredericton prior to the family moving to Ontario in 1989. He taught piano lessons in his own home to many children over the years, on his most precious baby grand piano. He shared his love of music when he played the organ and piano at the Mindemoya Missionary Church, often accompanying Jennifer for special music.
