Clark Davis Mashburn, Sr. of Nixa, M0, passed away Friday, July 12, 2019, at his home in Nixa from metastatic melanoma. He died peacefully with his family surrounding him. He was born in Springfield, MO, May 25, 1937, to Roy Eugene and Verna (Hutchens) Mashburn and was baptized in Christ when he was 9 years old. He graduated from Central High School in 1955 and from Southwest Missouri State University in 1993. He was an electrical engineer for Western Electric in Kansas City for 27 years. He took an early retirement and moved back to Nixa working for City Utilities in Springfield until retiring in 2001. One of his proud accomplishments during that time was the responsibility of acquiring a new communications system for the city and county emergency personnel. Clark’s passions were hiking, backpacking, amateur radio, and world travels. His love of electronics led him to his mission of helping others with computer or other technical needs. Clark will be remembered for his smile, generosity, and his example of Christian love. He is survived by his wife, Marcelene (Middleton), son Dave and (Jana) Mashburn, daughters Molly and (Mike) Armstrong and Susan Mashburn, 12 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren, brother James and (Pat) Mashburn, brother-in-law Terry Inmon, and life-long friend Lowell Snapp. He was preceded in death by his wife of 55 years, Paula May (Inmon).
