Jerry L. Clark, 71, of Farmville, Virginia, passed away peacefully on September 25, 2019.
Born in Parshall, North Dakota on August 26, 1948 to Anna and Arthur Clark. Jerry
attended North Dakota State University as a member of the Kappa Psi Fraternity of
Pharmacy and earned his Bachelor of Science followed by a Master’s Degree in
Pharmacology in 1971.
After meeting in Alexandria, VA. and marrying, Jerry and his wife Debra moved to Farmville
in 1972, where he went to work for Drug Fair Pharmacy. In 1987, Jerry branched out and
opened Clark's Pharmacy in downtown Farmville, an Independent Pharmacy that served the
local community until his retirement in 2016. He provided stability for his customers and
friends and was known throughout the area as a reliable source of pharmaceutical and practical
expertise, local knowledge and an infectious sense of humor.
During his retirement, Jerry loved to fish the local watering holes in the area, as
well as spending time supporting and watching NDSU Bison sports. He enjoyed
spending time with his faithful companion Furman at his backyard pool oasis but
most importantly enjoyed spending as much time as possible with his many
friends, children and grandchildren.
Jerry is survived by his wife Debra of 47 years, 4 children and 6
grandchildren and his dog who was ever at his side.
