To the many friends and supporters of JungleMaster Ministries:
It is with deep regret that we must share the news of the passing of Tom Clark, the founder and president of JungleMaster Ministries. Most of you have likely heard this news already, but some duplication may be necessary in order to ensure that all of our faithful supporters receive the news. It is perhaps best said in the words of Tom Clark’s children. Please read their letter below:
Dear Community, Friends, Family.
It is with the greatest of sorrow that we have to announce the passing of our father, Thomas Michael Clark. He died on October 31st, of a sudden heart attack while bicycling home from work in Bellingham, WA. If it offers anyone any consolation, he did not suffer in the weeks, days, hours, nor the moment of this unfortunate event. He will be remembered as a loving husband, a caring father, a devoted brother, and a passionate missionary, unfaltering in the face of adversity and unyielding in his love for God and man. Through his mission work with JungleMaster he touched many lives, both in Peru and here at home in the United States. Memories were created which will last beyond our short lifetimes, and a legacy built that will touch and improve the lives of many people for many years, most of whom will never be lucky enough to meet our father in this physical world.
We as a community of friends and family now have been given a great task; to be a salve for each other’s wounds in this time of grief and continue to be beacons of light in a world that often seems dark and perilous. Tom had the amazing ability to do these things for us while on this earth and now we must do this for each other until we can join him.
There will be a service and reception at Cornwall Church in Bellingham, WA, Monday the 7th of November at 1pm.
Tom loved each and every one of you,
The Clark Children

Thank you so much,
