Clark Alexander Prophet, Brenda Birdeen Clark; sons, Stanley Wade Clark, Bradford Lee (Teresita) Clark, Richard Darryl Clark, and Mark Craig Clark, all of Sandusky; thirteen grandchildren; twenty-four great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild; brother-in-law, Elmer Clark; nieces, Gloria Jean (Charles) Lott, and Dolores Hilaael; and a host of other relatives and friends.
