Don was born in Worland, Wyoming on July 18, 1936 to EE “Dick” and Katherine (Dietz) Clark. He grew up, attended school, lived and worked his entire life in the Worland area. He married Virgie Lyman and they had three children, Donna, Brent, and Laura. They later divorced. He married Marilyn Largent Foreman and became a wonderful father to her daughter, Penny. He worked for several farmers and ranchers in the area, as well as Triangle Packing and Sorenson’s Concrete. He then worked for Admiral Transport for 30 years, first driving truck and then became a dispatcher until his retirement.

In his retirement, he lovingly took care of his wife Marilyn and daughter, Penny and loved to go four-wheeling with friends.
