PUBLISHED: 15:03 07 July 2011
A LIFELONG Weston man who became well-known around the town for his family barbershop business has died aged 96.
Roy Clark was born in James Street in 1914, where his father Dave ran his own barber’s.
He served in the Royal Navy for six years during World War Two, before returning to Weston to take over the family business at a new premises in Upper Bristol Road.
He married piano teacher Dorothy, and the couple went on to have four children, who now live in locations as far-flung as Virginia, Florida and Australia. After Dorothy’s death, Roy became a long-term companion of Pam Rowe.
He will also be fondly remembered as the captain of the bellringers at Weston Parish Church.
Roy’s family said: “We are all sad at his passing but happy for his long and wonderful life.”
Roy’s funeral took place on Monday.
