Wamesit Lanes Person Of The Week: Ron Clark

Dec 07, 2015 01:33PM ● By Bill Gilman

Ron Clark, right, is congratulated by Wamesit Lanes owner Don MacLaren on being this week's Person of the Week!

Dedicated husband and father, community volunteer -- Ron Clark is the type of person on which a strong community is built.
Clark and his wife Danielle have been married 10 years and have a nine-year-old son, Aaron, a student at the Trahan School.
A typical day begins at 5 a.m., making lunches for his son and wife. It often ends bringing his son home from a practice for football, baseball, PAL wrestling or karate at TDSI.
In her nomination, Danielle talked her admiration for her husband's hard work and commitment.
Her nomination read:

When I read your request for a Tewksbury person of the week, I immediately thought of my husband, Ron Clark. Ron is an amazing husband and dad. Every day, he drops our son off at school, works hard all day, picks our son up from school and then makes dinner, helps with homework and takes our son to his sports commitments. Ron has a lot on his shoulders because of my crazy work schedule, yet Ron handles everything with care and grace. My son and I would literally be lost without him and this is one of the many reasons I would like to give Ron some well-deserved kudos.
In addition to Ron being such a loving, hardworking and involved family man, he is also a great role model for all in the community. Ron helps out our son’s football and baseball coaches, helps other parents with pick-ups when he can and contributes to a variety of meaningful causes. Most recently, Ron supported the Tewksbury Education Foundation (TEF) by helping at this year’s auction and he is also co-leading all of the TEF’s Barnes and Noble Day fundraising efforts with me. In a few weeks, Ron will also be taking my son and I on our annual Toys R Us shopping spree, where we buy toys to donate to the Winchester Hospital Emergency Room.  
In short, I would love to see my husband recognized for all he does for me and the community and know many others in Tewksbury would feel the same. In my opinion, Ron is  the perfect example of what an everyday community hero looks like. He makes a big difference with his small acts of kindness and that’s what it’s all about.
Ron is a very humble man and I look forward to making him feel special (hehe- and hopefully embarrassing him a bit too).

For his part, Ron admits time management can be a challenge for he and his wife, but adds that the hard work is well worth it.
"Everything we do is really to try and raise (Aaron) right," he said.
