Obituary of Clark Alan Fessenden

Clark Alan Fessenden, 61 Beloved son, father, brother and friend, Clark Alan Fessenden, 61, of Sagle, Idaho, peacefully passed away on January 3, 2020. Clark was born on June 2, 1958 in Seattle, Washington; the son of Warren Fessenden, Delores (Hudson) Fessenden. Clark married Teri Highsmith in 1988 in Friday Harbor, Washington. They had beautiful twin daughters together, Tabitha and Tanya. Teri and Clark later divorced but remained partners and friends until his passing. Throughout his life, Clark had many different jobs but his love for installing satellite systems and creating in home theaters was his passion. He took great pride in his work and was known for being good at what he did. Clark enjoyed nothing more than playing games with his family and friends. His favorite games were Parcheesi, Cribbage, and Farkle. He also enjoyed watching war movies, shooting guns in the driveway, lighting off fireworks and being out on the water. He was also a man of Faith and believed in doing right in the world. Clark always looked forward to the 4th of July where he would set off some of the biggest fireworks he could find. Some of Clarks most treasured memories were spending time with his family on his mom’s beach at Andrew's Bay in the San Juan Islands and bringing home beach rocks where he later spent many days polishing them. Clark enjoyed anything space related, especially Star Wars movies. He was an inventor in his own right and had visualized space travel where he could be one with the stars, galaxies and Universe. He had a love of cats and could turn even bitter cats into loving house cat’s making him known as the “Cat Whisperer”. Clark was a fun loving-guy and would often times be found riding his Honda 250 dirt bike on the trails around his home and to the neighbors houses for a visit. Clark was a dreamer with big hopes for the future. He loved people and had a big heart for those closest to him. It was said that the moment he held his children in his arms, he really understood what true love meant. He was dearly loved by his family and he will be missed by all who knew him. Clark is survived by his partner in life, Teri Highsmith; his daughters, Tabitha and Tanya Fessenden, Shantell Garcia and Trina Fessenden; his son, Jordan Fessenden; his father and stepmother, Warren and Susan Fessenden, his sisters, Janise Fessenden, Marianne Hudson, and stepsister Cheryl Nelson; his grandchildren; as well as two nephews. Clark was preceded in death by his mother, Delores; and his grandparents. There are no services scheduled at this time. The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Clark’s Honor at cancer.org/involved/donate/memorial-giving.html.
