Grass Valley Fire Department mourns the passing of past Fire Chief By Mark Buttron, Grass Valley Fire Chief – August 16, 2017

GRASS VALLEY, Calif. August 16, 2017 – Today the Grass Valley Fire Department mourns the loss of Jack Clark. Family and firefighters gathered at the home of long time Grass Valley Fire Department Volunteer Firefighter and past Chief of the Department Jack Clark.

Jack selflessly served his community and the City of Grass Valley Fire Department from 1952 when he became a firefighter through the early 1980’s.

In 1966, Jack was Chief of the Department. We are thankful to Jack and his family for his service to the City of Grass Valley, his community and the fire department.

A bell ringing, honoring Chief Clark, was held on August 19th, 1000 at the Race St Fire Station.”
