He was my Great Grandfather. I knew little about him other than my Grandmother Bernice & my mother Margery told me he was a very good man. My Grandpa Jack never mentioned him that I remember. I wish I would have had a lot more questions but now all are gone that knew him. God Bless you Great Grandfather, may you rest in peace and thank you for your service.

Great Grandpa,
My daughter Aleasha is pregnant with twins it is a joyous time. I was searching through an old chest that I kept the baby clothes of Aleasha and my son Anthony. In this chest I found an old large photograph of Yreka Inn around the 1920's or 30's with old cars lining the streets.
The photograph made me think of you. I don't know much about you but what I was told that you were a good man that met your demise too early in a horrific way.
May you rest in peace knowing you live on in the lives of your offspring.
By the way, your name sake, my brother's son Joe Clark, is having a son due this fall.
I will share your legacy with my grandchildren as I know Mike will as well.
Love your Great Granddaughter, Lori (Clark) Brewer

I have in past years been aquainted with Grandpa Joe,s Grand daughter,my fathers first cousin Shirley. My father had told me some of the story,of Grandpa Joe,s demise. I have been told that their is a book or an aticle of the events that happend that day. My father knew very little,or at least told me very little. Shirley,now 83 years old, remembers Joe and my Great Grandmother,Martha [Smith] Clark. Had I known more about Joe,andMartha when my Grand father was alive, I would have asked more about them. Joe and Martha had five children,I was very young,and I knew all of them but one,Shirly,s Mother Ester, who died a young woman. I have named my youngest son in memory of Joseph Clark. I literally owe my life to your exsistance, and thank you for your service. You will be honerably remembered.

In loving memory of my Grand aunts and uncle

Your heroism and service is honored today, the seventy-third anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
