Graham "Chip" Montrose Clark, Jr.

d. March 17, 2024

Graham Montrose Clark, Jr. , “Chip”, 78, of Scottsdale, AZ, loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother, and a brilliant lawyer and business executive, passed away on March 17, 2024.

 

Born in Washington, D.C., and raised in Scarsdale, N.Y., he was the husband of Courtney Fligeltaub and had seven children and four grandchildren.

 

Chip was an extraordinary scholar, graduating with a degree in philosophy and then a law degree from Yale University. He was an eclectic intellectual, with interests ranging across philosophy, economics, music theory, mathematics, physics and history. He was also an avid swimmer, swimming a mile-and-a-half daily for over 50 years.

 

Chip began his professional career as a law firm associate before joining a series of mining corporations as in-house counsel. This culminated in his position as Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary for Newmont Corp., a Fortune 500 Company. Mr. Clark then served as President and Director for several smaller mining companies including United Mining Group, Golden Fame Resources Corp. and United Silver Corp. Among his many professional accomplishments, he successfully lobbied the town of Telluride, CO to accept Newmont’s proposed and innovative earthen cap to revegetate a defunct tailings pond over the State’s proposal, resulting in a verdant green space and avoiding years of disruptive trucking through the town.

 

But Chip’s true passion was his family. He was a loving husband and an exceptional father to seven children. As a father, he was exceptionally patient, kind, encouraging, and loving.

 

Chip was the son of the late Graham Montrose Clark, Sr. and the late Jane Blue Clark. In addition to his wife, children, and grandchildren, he is survived by his brother, Walter Clark; and his two sisters, Robin Mead and Susan Clark.

 

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Colorado School of Mines.
