David J Clark served 4 years proudly in the United States Marine Corp with 2 tours in China and Japan. After returning from the war, David and his cousin visited their friends Paul and Hazel Cross in Greensburg, KY. This is where he met his soul mate, which he called his “First Lady” Ollye Davenport and wed April, 1949 and moved to Jefferson County where they began their family of 3 children.

David and Ollye enjoyed all family times in Greensburg for Holidays, Graduations, and vacations. They drove to Greensburg, KY like it was just around the corner for family unity. Charles “Horten” and Leora Davenport was his substitute father and mother. They took them on summer vacations and when they became ill, Dave helped take care of them as if they were his own.

After 70 years of marriage they were still each others one and only SOUL MATE.
