July 17, 2005

David Lee Clark Sr., a retired auto body repairman and car collector, died of a brain tumor Wednesday at his Howard Park home. He was 73.

Mr. Clark was born and raised on a farm near Charlotte Courthouse, Va., and graduated from Charlotte County public schools. He served in the Army in the early 1950s as a camouflage specialist. He was discharged with the rank of corporal in 1954.

He moved to Baltimore in the early 1960s and worked as an auto body repairman for more than 20 years at Anderson Oldsmobile Inc., at Howard and 25th streets, until retiring in 1986.

Mr. Clark was an avid collector of station wagons and minivans, family members said.

He was married for more than 30 years to the former Juanita Moore, who died in 1987.

Mr. Clark was a member of Gillis Memorial Church, 4016 Park Heights Ave., where services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

He is survived by three sons, David Lee Clark Jr. of Burbank, Calif., Timothy Clark and Alfred T. Clark, both of Baltimore; five daughters, Denise Clark, Jane M. Clark, Gladys Wilson, Cheryl Clark and Saundra R. Clark, all of Baltimore; two brothers, Earl Clark of Montclair, N.J., and George Clark of Lynchburg, Va.; three sisters, Louella Clark and Catherine Clark, both of Montclair, N.J., and Pauline Clark of Boston; nine grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
