Robert Lee Clarke - 12/22/2005
April 17, 1922 – December 22, 2005
Robert Lee Clarke died early Thursday morning of cancer. He was born in Vermilion, Alberta on April 17, 1922 to Harold J. Clarke and Leonora Opfergelt Clarke. He was educated in Vermilion, then at the University of Alberta (1939 – 1943), where he received the Governor General’s Medal upon graduating with a Bachelor of Science. He went on to McGill University (1945 – 1948) to receive a Ph. D. in Physics. He worked at the National Research Council from 1943 to 1945, and Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. from 1948 to 1968. He then joined the Physics Department of Carleton University where he served as department chair in the 1970s. He formally retired in 1987, but continued to work in Medical Physics research as Professor Emeritus, and served on university committees, right up until the month before he died. In addition, he spent many periods of research at the Institute of Cancer Research at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Belmont, Surrey, United Kingdom. He was instrumental in setting up the medical physics research section at Carleton University and assisted in setting up the Ottawa Medical Physics Institute in 1989. On the occasion of the fifteenth anniversary of the Ottawa Medical Physics Institute, the Robert Clarke Graduate Scholarship in Medical Physics was set up. Devoted to Canada and to physics, Bob was a member of the Canadian Association of Physics from the beginning and enjoyed many professional and personal friendships. In 1943 he met Vera Powell at N.R.C. They were colleagues in the Optics Section, and were married in 1945. There are four children: James (Betty Lam), Gwyneth (Craig Lewis), Alan (Madeline Weld), and Brian (Sandra Cooney). There are eleven grandchildren: Owen (Carolina Ibarra), Roger (Becci Gindin) and Edwin Clarke, Brandon, Denise (Mike Billy), Eleanor and Anna Lewis; Ansel and Derwin Clarke; and Liam and Colleen Clarke; and three great grand children: Catherine, Reeva, and Mike Billy. Bob will also be remembered by Betty and Lloyd Stackhouse, Patricia Clarke (late Donald), and nephews and nieces. His many friends enriched and broadened his life. Bob’s interests were wide-ranging. He enjoyed games of tennis, and later squash until early 2005. For many years he flew small airplanes, in the U.K. and in Canada. He bicycled around Ottawa and took grandchildren boating on Dow’s Lake. He enjoyed concerts at the National Arts Centre, attended Wednesday meetings at Riverside Kiwanis and delivered Meals on Wheels, where his regular Christmas delivery will be missed by many. He travelled extensively in Canada and in the U.K., and in many other parts of the world from Nigeria to Japan and places in between. The family would like to thank Dr. Bhimji and the staff on A5 at the Ottawa Civic Hospital for their care and compassion. There will be a Private Family Funeral Service, and a Public Memorial Gathering at Carleton University at a date to be announced. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Robert Clarke Graduate Scholarship in Medical Physics, care of Carleton University, or a charity of your choice.
