Beryl Clark ( Idaho City 1957 )

posted: Jan 1, 2002

Beryl, 65, died of acute respiratory problems May 30, 2002, at Mercy Medical Center in Nampa, Idaho.

He jumped at Idaho City in 1957-58 and 1960 and at McCall in 1959. Beryl graduated from Boise High School in 1954, Boise Junior College in 1956, and Idaho State University in 1961. His major studies were business and accounting.

His 37-year career as a budget analyst took him to Utah, Idaho, Nevada, California, Puerto Rico, and finally to Washington, D.C. before he retired in 1995.

He had many varying and challenging experiences during his USFS career, but the times he reminisced about the most were the summers he spent as a smokejumper during which he made 37 jumps.
