WHEREAS, Chris is an extremely talented, compassionate and dedicated individual, who worked tirelessly to report the news; and

WHEREAS, Chris’s distinctive voice filled our living rooms nightly as he became a daily part of our everyday lives; and
WHEREAS, Chris Clark has, through his time and efforts, provided immeasurable assistance to charitable groups, schools, churches, and causes throughout our community; and
