Gene Burnise Clark, 79, passed away on Thursday, September 24, 2020 at home with his wife and daughters at his side.
Gene was a commercial fisherman and would always work on his shrimp boat and implement new ideas on how to catch more shrimp. He enjoyed being outdoors and hunting. He was an exceptional guitar player and would play a tune any chance he got. Most of all he was a devoted husband who adored his wife and loved his family. He will be deeply missed.
