    MORAVIA — Alan D. Clark, 69, of Moravia, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, April 17, 2016 at Auburn Community Hospital.

    Alan was born July 30, 1946 in Auburn, a son of Marilyn (West) Clark, of Moravia, and the late Ivan J. Clark. A lifelong resident of the town of Venice, Alan graduated from Genoa Central School and later received an associate’s degree in business administration from Cayuga Community College. Alan was a self-employed beekeeper, and operated his business, Blossom Sweet Honey Company. He had served as a radioman with the Navy from 1967 to 1969, before being honorably discharged, and was a former member of the American Legion.

    Alan enjoyed flying small aircraft and was a ham radio enthusiast. He loved NASCAR racing, camping, hunting, and spending time in the Adirondacks.

    In addition to his mother, he is survived by his wife of 45 years, Celestia (Munn) Clark; two sons, Eric Clark, of Moravia, and Jeffrey Clark, of Tennessee; five granddaughters, Kristian, Celestia, Samantha, Julia, and Izabella Clark, who he loved and cared very much for; two great-grandsons, and his faithful dog, Sophie, who traveled everywhere with him and on many trips South.

    He was predeceased by his father, Ivan, on March 30, 2015, and by his sister, Linda Clark, on March 22, 2005.

    Friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, April 22 at the Shurtleff Funeral Home, 10117 Route 90, Genoa. A private graveside service will be held in Riverview Cemetery, Old Forge.

    Memorial contributions may be made to the Long Hill Fire Department, 2513 Long Hill Road, Venice Center, NY 13147.

    Celestia called me and wants someone to buy the 36 hives that she and Alan had just got back to NY 24 hours before his heart attack hit. If interested send me a PM and I will give you her contact info.

    There are also 80 splits in SC which Celestia would like to sell.

    No, I have no details. You'll have to talk to Celestia. I'm just trying to help her out.

    I'm saddened to hear this. I found his posts here very useful, and he took some trouble in my first year helping me figure things out.

    It doesn't say so in Alan's obit, but he worked as an Apiary Inspector in NY State. I don't know which years. Must have been before 1986 when I started.
