Philip B. Clark
unknown - October 20, 2011
Philip B. Clark, 82, went to be with the Lord Thursday, Oct. 20, 2011. The founder of Diversified Concepts Inc. of Marcellus was a resident of Onondaga County for more than 50 years. A licensed professional engineer, Phil was a brilliant man, respected by his peers.
A 1952 electrical engineering graduate of Syracuse University, he was a member of Tau Beta Pi, the national Engineering Honor Society. Upon graduation he worked for SU Research Corp then launched his own company, Empire Services, in 1955, a forerunner of DCi Sound. He and his company were industry leaders in sound reinforcement.
He was a man of ingenuity and vision, tremendous character and integrity; the best dad and husband in the world. He is survived by his wife Lauri, the love of his life; three daughters: Dee (Mark) Murakami, Lyn (David) May and Pye (Stephen) Pajewski; nine grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and his sister Judith Clark. His faith in Jesus as his savior was quietly expressed as he interacted with neighbors and business associates. He will be greatly missed.
A celebration of life: 2 p.m. Nov. 5 at the United Christian Church in Marietta. Donations to the Spafford Area Historical Society or to the United Christian Church of Marietta are encouraged in lieu of flowers.
