Lynn "Clark" Williamson

October 24, 1937 — July 14, 2023

 

After valiantly fighting several chronic illnesses, Lynn ‘Clark’ Williamson left this life to rejoin his forever sweetheart, Donna, on July 14, 2023. He was born October 24, 1937 in Saint Charles, Bear Lake, Idaho. He was the oldest child of Lyle Young Williamson and Phyllis Constance Clark Williamson. The family moved to Layton, Utah in 1945, and he lived in Layton for the rest of his life.

 

Shortly after moving to Layton, Clark began taking dance lessons. He was a very good dancer, but after he contracted rheumatic fever, he was unable to continue dancing. Unfortunately, the rheumatic fever damaged several valves in his heart and led to health issues later in his life.

 

Clark discovered his love of working with wood at a very early age. He made beautiful furniture in his shop classes at Davis High School and went on to study carpentry and construction at Trade Tech in Salt Lake. After trade school he began a career in construction and cabinetry which continued until his retirement. Those who are lucky enough to own one of his creations, treasure them for their fine craftsmanship.

 

In 1958 he married the love of his life, Donna Marie Allgood. They were sealed in the Ogden Utah temple in July of 1988. His devotion to Donna and his family were defining characteristics in his life.

 

He was a man of few words but taught by his actions and example. As an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, many families remember his quiet home teaching visits.

 

One of his greatest joys was gardening. He loved fresh garden tomatoes and green beans. He took great pride in his garden and often had the tallest tomato plants in the neighborhood. He also grew cucumbers, cantaloupe, watermelon, pumpkins, zucchini, radishes, peppers and even popcorn.

 

He is survived by brother Terrence Lyle Williamson of Provo, UT; sister Sharon Dahle of Prescott, AZ; four children, Terre Lynn (Paul) Christiansen of Roy, UT; Shelly Marie Williamson of Layton, UT; Terresa Deon (Douglas) Slade of Kaysville, UT; and Marty Keith Williamson of Layton, UT; 19 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Lyle Young Williamson and Phyllis Constance Clark Williamson, his wife of 62 years Donna Marie Allgood Williamson, a son Vaughn Clark (Ellen) Williamson, and grandson Tyson Brant Horton.
