Clark Kent Alspaugh, 60, of Decatur, died Monday morning, July 25, 2022 at Adams Memorial Hospital. His death followed an apparent heart attack he suffered while on the job.
He was born on April 15, 1962 in Decatur to Heber Ed Alspaugh and the late Sally Imel Alspaugh. Clark was married to Machelle DeRoo on September 23, 1989 in Decatur.
He attended New Hope Church in Decatur. Clark graduated from Norwell High School in 1981. He worked for Fleetwood in the painting department for 38 years.
Clark loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He showed the love of Christ by volunteering at his church and helping others in need. In his “free time” Clark was involved with the company known as the Jim and Clark Handymen business.
As he grew older with Machelle, they were blessed with four grandchildren. His grandchildren then became the focus of his life as he enjoyed teaching them all the fun things in life. When he could, he liked to fish alongside classic muscle cars – especially Novas.
He is survived by his loving wife Machelle Alspaugh of Decatur; two daughters, Brittney (Daniel) Killion by Decatur and Brenna (Nick) Dillion by Markle; his father, Heber Ed Alspaugh of Decatur; brother, Curt (Carla) Alspaugh of Craigville; three sisters, Collette (Jerry) Hurst, Colleen (Jim) Cole and Claudine (Josh) Girard, all from Decatur; his mother-in-law Jane DeRoo of Decatur; and four grandchildren, Naomi, Tyson, Laini Killion, and Remington Dillion.
Clark was preceded in death by his mother, Sally Alspaugh.
