Clark Edward Lindsley

Clark Edward Lindsley died of unknown causes on Friday, June 19th, at the age of 56 while attending a wedding in Costa Rica with his beloved wife, Dorothy Lindsley. Along with his wife he is survived by his three children, Samantha, Grant, and Joshua, and his sister, Caroline Morchower.

Clark was born in Dallas, Texas on December 15, 1958 to Edgerly and Joseph “Bill” Lindsley III.  He graduated from Southern Methodist University. At the age of 20 he met Dorothy Kervahn, the woman who became his heart, and was joined to her in marriage on October 15, 1983.  Two years later they celebrated the birth of their first child, Samantha. Their family grew in love again three and a half years later when their first son, Grant, was born.

The family then moved to Irvine, California and shortly thereafter moved again to Sacramento where their youngest child, Joshua was born in 1992. Nine years and five moves later, Clark and his family arrived in Houston where they finally settled permanently.

Clark is most notably remembered for his rich, and often shocking, sense of humor. He is also remembered for the gentleness, generosity, and compassion which characterized his interactions with everyone he met.

As a father, his children were, and continue to be, profoundly blessed by his tremendous wisdom. He taught them to know value in all its forms, from the value of knowledge to the value of a kind word. As a husband, Clark will be remembered for his passion for Dorothy, whom he loved with an intensity that few will ever experience or witness.

Clark Lindsley lived and died a man of God and shared his message by living a life of such abundant love that he will never be forgotten by those he touched.


  1. Very sorry to hear. Knew Clarke well from Hyer School through High School. Was always one of the nicest.

  2. Heartfelt prayers for the family during thIs sad time. I worked with Clark for awhile and I can say he was a true gentleman. God will take each of us when it’s time. There will certainly be many tears shed during this healing process. I recently lost my Dad to Leukemia so I know your feelings and how this loss will make all the memories of him priceless to the each of you. He was so proud of his family, with just his words you could tell he was a family man. God Bless

  3. We loved Uncle Clark very much. He will be forever in our hearts.

  4. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Lindsley family during this difficult time. We were very fortunate to be touched by Clarks warmth and kindness as a neighbor and a friend. The man always had a smile on his face which was a reflection of his contentment with his life and family. This may also explain his ability to walk his dogs barefooted on 95 deg pavement or maybe this was due to being a saint. I believe both!

    God Bless,
    Jeff, Julie and Chris McKinney

  7. I saw a picture of Clark on in a post about his death on Facebook and instantly recognized that smile of his. It is so interesting that his obituary mentions his sense of humor because as a younger scout in Troop 70 that is what I recall about him. He always had a wide mischievous smile, but if he ever got in trouble with Mr. Sailers our scoutmaster I don’t remember it.

  8. We met Clarks’ parents and sister in the 1960s when our family moved to Villanova in Dallas and we became friends and neighbors. We later moved but in a few years our son Glenn showed up at their door to see Carolyn. They married within a short time so that we are privileged to be united as family.
    Dorothy, Grant, Samantha, and Joshua, we pray for healing in time so that sorrow is lessened and the sweet memories prevail.
    Barbara Morchower and family
