James T. Clark, 92 of Exeter Township passed away peacefully on April 7, 2020 at the Berkshire Center. He was the loving husband of Claire R. (Gantert) Clark, married for 66 years. Born in West Reading, Pa. he was the son of the late Augustus and Florence (Witman) Clark.

James was a U.S. Airforce veteran serving in the Korean Conflict. He was employed by Sears and Boscov’s as a lawnmower technician for 33 years, retiring in 1990. James was an active member of Faith Lutheran Church, Mt. Penn.

James enjoyed the simple pleasures of life which included family gatherings, local church dinners and events as well as music and cultural events; his favorite being the Bethlehem Musikfest. Those that knew him will remember his friendliness, his generosity, his signature joking mannerisms, his love of Lawrence Welk shows, the Three Stooges, and especially Chinese food! In recent years, James looked forward to the daily visits from his wife Claire to his home at Berkshire Commons, where they enjoyed many friendships and activities together.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by seven nieces and two nephews.

He was predeceased by his brother Augustus Clark, and his sister, Marie (Clark) Boehm.

Graveside services will be private. A Celebration of James life including military honors, will be held at a later date at Faith Lutheran Church, 210 North 25th Street, Reading, PA, 19606. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Faith Lutheran at the above address. Edward J. Kuhn Funeral Home, Inc., West Reading, is in charge of arrangements. Condolences may be expressed at

I would like to send my condolences to the family of James Clark. I moved to Mountain Park in January of 1975. My son David was just born in December. He is now 45 years old. My wife and I were happy to have him as a valued neighbor for all those years. I would always see the flag blowing in the wind in his yard. I am a Vietnam Veteran and I respect his service in the Korean War.
Sincerely, Thomas and Ann Marie Zawislak 844 Woodchuck Ln.

Fred and I were saddened this morning to see/hear of Jim's passing. Though we have been out of touch for a while, we will always remember Jim as one of the founding members of the breakfast club at Fegley's for many years. We still smile at his prowess at catching those "sinkers" when Barbara Moss tossed them to Jim! Our love and prayers to you and your family at this difficult time. Mary and Fred Hoffert

Dear Claire: I was so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. We shared so many years together at Boscov's. It was a great place to work and we had a lot of good times there together. Jim always had a joke or funny story to tell while we were working and they made the days pass quickly. I know that you must miss him a lot but I'm sure that you must have a million memories of great times that the two of you shared. I will be thinking about you and praying for you. Joe Stemler

Hi Aunt Claire. I know Jim hadn't been doing well for a time. So sorry for your loss - he always had such a big, jovial personality, which I hope he kept to the end. Thank you for keeping in contact with me even though I moved away 22 years ago. I have many fond memories of visiting you and Jim when we were all much younger! Please accept my condolences and my love from afar.

Hi Claire, I knew Jim through Boscov's. He was a very kind and friendly man with a great personality and sense of humor. I enjoyed the times I had when talking with him and sharing stories. Wrap yourself in the warm memories that you had with Jim. Allow the love that held you close continue to bring you strength and comfort. Wishing you peace. Dominic Murgido
