Obituary for Clark Dennis Vetterling

Clark Vetterling, of Arvada, Colorado, passed away Friday, April 16th, 2021 at University of Colorado Hospital, Anschutz campus, in Aurora, CO after a short and sudden illness, he was surrounded by his family as he passed. He was their everything.

Clark was born in Freeport, Texas to Clarence and Doris Vetterling. He has one sibling, William Vetterling of Houston, Texas.

Clark was a joyous spirit who loved to be around people, and enjoyed a good laugh. He lived for the laughter of his wife, children, grandchildren and friends. Clark also loved understanding where he came from, inspiring a love for genealogy, which he wanted to pass on the same desire and information to his children and grandchildren so
that they too understand where they come from.

Clark graduated with his Bachelors degree from Michigan State University, moving on to Washington State University for his Masters degree. Moving to Washington state is what brought him and his wife of 47 years together, meeting while working for Pacific Northwest Bell in Seattle.

Clark is survived by his wife, Susan, children Jolene (Ben) Ruckman, Melissa (Chris) Bokovitz, Kurt (Maggy) Vetterling and grandchildren Jackson, Grant, Isabelle and Cora.

Christina Barkley

Sue - please accept my sincerest condolences on the loss of Clark. Working in the Leyden Rock community alongside Clark over the last 3 years, I considered him a friend and truly appreciated getting to know him. Clark was a true servant leader within his community and his impact will not be forgotten. Clark clearly did love being around people and being a helper. I pray for you and your family's peace and comfort during this time. Many thanks to you and Clark for all you have done - Christina Barkley, Leyden Rock District Manager

Sue and Family, our heartfelt sympathies to you. Clark sure was a very special man. I met him when we both were looking for grass for our dogs (my GSD, Yeager and Clark's Baxter) when the development was so new. We would have to travel down to the model homes' offices. Clark was an inspiration for ideas, advice and anything else you were needing. I am thankful for the years we knew him. Gonna miss the mail box run-ins and just him passing by in the car and waving. Peace and love to you all.

Clark and I often met in the lunchroom at former Level 3 as TEOCO teammates (at the time). He was funny, thoughtful, and smart. I enjoyed talking to him. My condolences for the loss of such a special person
