Benny H. Clark was born to Arthur and Carmen Clark on Oct. 27, 1929. He passed away Dec. 21, 2020.
He lived in Mammoth, AZ all his life. When he was 17 he joined the Army where he served three years of his life. When Benny was discharged from the service, he married his grade school sweetheart, Frances Garcia. In 1953 he went to work for Magma.
Between rodeos and farming, Benny and Frances had seven children. Benny loved roping with his children and grandchildren. Benny and Frances loved to follow their grandchildren and great-grandchildren around to all of their sports. They traveled from one side of Arizona to the other following Wyatt wrestling and the girls playing softball and junior rodeo.
Benny was still in the arena at the age of 81 and enjoying gathering cattle at the age of 88. On a horse and in the arena was where he was happiest. He will be greatly missed by all. We know when he gets there, someone will be there to welcome him and say “Welcome home Cowboy, your entry fees have been paid.”
Benny is survived by his sons, Arthur (Sue), Phillip (Sally), Robert (Alicia), and Larry; and his daughters, Margaret (Michael) and Norma (Randy). He also leaves behind 22 grandchildren, 37 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. He was preceded in death by his wife, Frances; son, Rudy; and grandson, Phillip.
