Peace Arch Stories
Remembering my friend Richard Clark by Christina Winkler
Remembering my friend... Peace Arch City Historian. Richard ‘Dick’ Clark (writer, historian) was as complex as the classical music he so loved. His life was a concerto filled with cadenzas and crescendos.
He was a passionate, creative, independent thinker. When it came to understanding the Peace Arch he was a virtuoso ahead of his time. He served his community well as an educator, musician, writer, historian, and personality. We have been blessed to have known him.
For his finale, he has now joined those whose voices from the past HE FOUGHT SO HARD to have remembered.
WE APPLAUD him for his efforts and we promise that we will never forget Richard and what he stood for. Bravo! Job well done.
