Condolences to the Clark family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, "heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds." May God bring you comfort and peace.

My sincere condolences to the Clark family. So many Moeller athletes benefitted so much from the weight training and coaching, I'll always have great memories of the way that the Clark's opened their home to so many people. Like so many others, Bill and Judy made a difference in my life and I will always be grateful for the privilege of being a part of the Moeller family. God bless you Bill.

Mr. Clark was a great man who knew what it took to develop boys into great athletes and "Men of Moeller!"

My deepest sympathy to the entire Clark family for the loss of this great man. I had the good fortune of having Bill as one of my offensive line coaches. Bill was tough,honest,consistent and possessed an incredible work ethic. It was a privilege to know him. I had the good fortune to visit with him about 6 weeks ago. I learned about his service in the Marine Corps and listened to him describe how he got his job at P&G. In both cases his discipline and persistence paid dividends. What a wonderful man. The world was a better place with him and he will be very difficult to replace. Thank you Bill for everything you have done for me and the many others you influenced through your most successful life. Most Sincerely, Syl

Coach - you will be missed. I remember well the days on the field and the nights in your basement. You always believed in us, and taught us to believe in ourselves. The work ethic you showed by example has been a blessing to me throughout my life. Thanks Coach! Rest in Peace.

My prayers are with the Clark family. Bill was inspirational in getting us into great shape with the weight training in his basement. The work ethic he and all the coaches instilled in me have served me well through the years. A great man, a great coach, a great leader. Rest In Peace.
Mike Hacker - Sep 26, 2017
Coach Clark has been a cornerstone in the Moeller Family for so many years. I, too, recall, my earliest trips to Coach Clark's basement for lifting - 3- 4 x / week for 4 years. The lifting instructions and work ethic he gave me are still with me today. Thanks Coach Clark for being a true leader of men. Mike Hacker - Class of 1970.

As an asst. coach in the early Faust/Clark era, and from a distance, Coach G. and myself could hear Coach Clark driving you guys on the seven man sled. A true inspiration to many of us. He passed with a lot of blue and gold in his heart.

Mrs. Clark, my memory is so clear of Bill and you graciously opening your home to us those many years ago in order for us to come lift weights in your basement. What generosity! Bill's commitment to Moeller football, but even more to we the players, is something for which I will always be grateful. Bill was a mentor and friend to so many of us. Rest in peace, my friend.
Tom Backhus - Sep 26, 2017
Bill, I sit here and try to come up with a way to say what it is you meant to me and all of us at the start of the great tradition that became Moeller High School football. All I can say is 'Thank You' for what you did for me and for all of us. You will always be alive in my life.

Thank You Bill, for opening your home and your heart to many of the Men of Moeller. I am sure that this will provide comfort to family and friends knowing that you gave so much, and asked for nothing in return. RIP Mr. Clark.

One of Moeller's advantages in those early years was due to the weight and strength program Bill started. Many stories can be told of the days and nights and often mornings lifting in the basement. Not only Bill but wife and family contributed to that basement program, as all were welcomed day and night. A Moeller legend, that so many owe so much. Was so great to see you at functions recently. You will always be in my memory.
Jack Monahan - Sep 25, 2017
He was a great inspiration to all of us in the Moeller football program. He will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers for the whole Clark family.
Terry Byrnes '73' - Sep 25, 2017
Very sad. He was the off the field and in the weight room hero of Moeller HS. He took small folks like me and helped us achieve goals neither myself or others thought possible. I will miss him. Prayers to him and his family.
Jack Harpring "67" - Sep 25, 2017
Bill, thank you. In 1964, I entered 'the basement' for the 1st time - met Bill, wife and weight lifting friends. Definitely one of the main cornerstones of 'Big Moe' football. Made Moeller 'head and shoulders' over the competition and was ahead of his time. We loved you also as an offensive line coach.

Bill Clark, an incredible Man, US Marine and Coach at Moeller HS. I met Bill in the early 1990s at Bally's in Blue Ash where he was a trainer. He was always great to talk to and inspirational. I recently saw him again at LA Fitness at Harpor's Point back during the winter of this year still training his clients. It was an honor to see and talk to him again about our past experiences at Moeller. Sending our prayers to the Clark family. I will miss you coach! Keino Williams (Moe '87)

The Moeller football team of 1965 is grateful for all that Bill has done for us!!
Greg - Sep 25, 2017
Bill was one of the cornerstones of the Moeller Football program. I remember as a Freshman lifting in his basement with about 20 other players down there. And Bill's wife would say hello and goodbye to each player as they came and went. He encouraged all of us guys to be seriuos about or lifting technique convincing us that it would pay dividends on the field. Look at Moellers reputation all these years and you can see Bills handiwork all over it. RIP Bill, and Go Big Moe!

The contribution of coach Clark to the building of the greatest high school football program in history can never be forgoten or underestimated. I remember the basment weight room. A great man and a crusader till he died. The Miller family will miss you coach.
