BOB CLARK CHALLENGE
About Bob Clark
Bob Clark and his legacy are well known in Kingston and beyond.
Together with his wife Myrna, Bob was the owner and operator of Aunt Lucy’s Dinner House, St. Lawrence Cruise Lines, and the Worthington Park mobile home in Kingston’s north end. He was a two-time recipient of the Businessman of the Year award and his impact on the Kingston area reached far and wide. His success was only exceeded by his kind heart and generosity.
Although he had no children of his own, he was described as a family man through and through. Mr. Clark was very close to his nieces and nephews, namely his younger brother Jim’s children, Shilane and Jason. The social causes that were important to them, were important to him.
After Bob passed away in 2016, his nephew Jason and good friend Wally Viner became the co-executors of his estate. When Pancreatic Cancer Canada ran our #AssumptionsCanBeDeadly campaign in 2017, Jason and Wally reached out to our CEO Michelle Capobianco. They were inspired by the campaign’s bold message that our patients deserve greater progress, more time and survival. In learning about Bob and his estate, we came to understand very quickly the significance of his impact in life and now in his legacy.
Bob’s desire to leave the world with more hope and goodness than when he found it is evident in the exceptional generosity he showed through his estate. Pancreatic Cancer Canada is humbled, honoured and determined by the inclusion of pancreatic cancer as one of the many ways he will continue to change this world.
