Clark ‘Ringo’ Perry passed away October 6, 2011 at the age of 64, at Memorial Hospital in North Conway. He is survived by his brothers, Steve, Sheldon and Gardiner.
Clark grew up in Wayland, Mass., and attended Wayland Public Schools, during which time he was a frequent visitor to the North Country. He skied at Wildcat for many winters with his parents and siblings, and worked in the Appalachian Mountain Club hut system for multiple summers, including as Assistant Hutmaster during the first summer Mizpah Springs Hut opened.
Clark graduated from Paul Smith’s College with a degree in Culinary Arts, and was employed for 17 years at Horsefeathers, with shorter stays at the Wildcat Tavern, Eagle Mountain House, Stonehurst Manor, Red Fox Pub and the AMC Pinkham Notch Visitor Center. He shared his love for mechanics and motorcycles with close friends, and was often seen in signature leathers on his vintage motorcycle. Clark may be best known for his dedicated service for over three decades to a 12 Step Program, through which he helped many individuals in the local community and throughout the state.
