Thursday, September 23, 2010 |

Members of the Los Angeles Fire Department are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Battalion Chief Gary L. Clark, who died suddenly while off-duty on September 22, 2010.

Chief Clark began his career with the Los Angeles Fire Department in January 1980, and at the time of his passing was Commander of LAFD's Battalion 14 'C' Platoon, serving the southeast San Fernando Valley.

He is survived by his wife, along with four sons and three daughters. Additional information regarding final arrangements will be released as soon as they become available.

To convey both our respect and sadness, the flags at all Los Angeles Fire Stations will be flown at half-staff, and uniformed members of our agency have been authorized to wear a mourning band upon their badges, until further notice.
