Bernard H. Clark, age 90, was a lifelong resident of Greensboro, FL until he passed away on May 7, 2013. Bernard was born on November 1, 1922, the son of Horace and Susie Barineau Clark. He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers, Kenneth Clark of Sarasota, FL. and James "Jimmy" Clark of Greensboro.

Bernard was a lifelong member of the United Methodist Church of Greensboro where he taught Sunday School and served on various committees during his lifetime.
Bernard graduated from Greensboro High School in May of 1940. He then entered the University of Florida in September 1940. His college term was interrupted in 1942 when he entered the U.S. Army to serve in World War II.
Cpl. Clark was in the Battle of the Bulge and served as a Heavy Machine Gunner during the war.

Bernard became an Associate County Extension Agent for Gadsden County where he dedicated his service to the youth and livestock programs of the community until he retired in 1979.
He received recognition and awards during his years of service but always said it was knowing he helped the youth of the community that made his job so rewarding. He was inducted into the Florida 4-H Club Hall of Fame during the 4-H Congress held in Gainesville, FL in July 2005.

MUNROE SOFTBALL GETS MAJOR UPSET WIN:
The common quote, “The best team always wins,” is mostly true. The Munroe Lady Cats were not the better team overall. But they were the better team between the hours of 3:00 – 5:00 last Tuesday in Aucilla and that’s all they needed to upset the state second-ranked Aucilla Christian Warriors by a 6-3 score. Munroe was defeated by Aucilla Christian in all three meetings this season by a combined score of 30-2 with two games ending on the “mercy rule.”
