    I moved recently and purchased three items of furniture from Peddler’s Alley. One was a desk and my son and I could not find one we liked. Dave was very helpful, “Did you see this one? How about that one?” He finally unearthed one in the corner we hadn’t seen and helped us load it up. He was always so friendly and helpful and will be missed.

    Sorry to hear about the passing of uncle Dave, so enjoyed all the times we spent together over the years. Dave will be greatly missed by family and friends. Daves passing has left a void in Frankfort.

  30. OmaNell Strong March 5, 2022 at 1:15 pm

    It has taken me several days to come to the realization that Dave is no longer with us. I am so sad. There are certain people who touch our lives in a special way, Dave was one of those people for me. It would be impossible to list all the good-hearted things he has done for me over the years. He was a kind person to all, seeking no recognition or rewards. These memories will always remain with me, some will bring a smile to my face and some tears to my eyes as I recall our friendship, which I will treasure forever. I am so grateful to have known such a special person as Dave Clark. Rest in peace my friend.

  31. Diana Lemen March 6, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    I am so sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. I spent some time with him a few years ago after a long time of being away from Frankfort. He and Chris were friends of my parents years ago when I was a teenager. I always loved Dave. I gave him a Marine’s caldron that had belonged to my Dad and he was happy to have it. I know he will be missed by his friends and family. My heart goes out to his daughter Paige and his beloved Chris. I love you Chris.
