Ronald M. Clark

August 9, 1946 - August 29, 2019

Ronald M. Clark, 73, of Batavia passed away Thursday, August 29, 2019 at Seasons Hospice in Naperville.  He was born August 9, 1946, in Chicago, IL the son of Mannis and Anna (Rzonca) Clark.  He was united in marriage to Mary Jeanette Delke April 20, 1974 in Niles, IL.

Ronald was a hard-working business owner of Clark Molding located in Batavia.  He created and manufactured several plastic hand tools used everyday in the construction trades.  Ron had a love for classic Chevrolet cars especially the 1965 Chevelle. Although his business and cars were very important to him his family always came first and his grandchildren gave him the most joys of life.  Ron leaves behind broken hearts of his adored family of all girls, many empty spots in future car shows, but great memories to live on forever. 

Ronald is survived by his loving wife Mary; Carolyn (Michelle O’Donoghue) Clark, Christine (Kevin) Baer, Cheryl (Kevin) Dietz, Cynthia (Tony) Gugliuzza, and Colleen Clark; six grandchildren, Matthew Konwent, Alyssa, Robby, and Jacob Dietz, and Aidan and Lily Baer; his mother Anna Clark; and a brother James (Vicki) Clark.
