Obituary for Vincent Clark, Jr.

Vincent  Clark, Jr.
Vincent W. Clark Jr. was born on April 11th, 1950 in New York, NY to Vincent Clark Sr. and Gladys (Young) Clark. He was the youngest of three children from this union. He passed away on August 1, 2018.

Vincent was raised in Harlem, NY. As a child he was an acolyte at St. Philips church. At a young age, Vincent gained a passion for fishing, sports, and reading, which would continue throughout his life.

Vincent graduated from LaGuardia Community College, with his associates of science, and then went on to York College, where he graduated with a bachelor of Arts degree in political science. He then went on to receive his Master’s in Public Administration, from New York University.

At the time of his passing, Vincent was Vice President for Administration and Finance at Lehman College.

Prior to joining Lehman, Vincent was the New York City Department of Education's Senior Chief Executive for Field Services, as well as Chief Executive Officer for the DOE's Community Learning Support Organization. Vincent had more than 20 years of leadership experience in providing comprehensive business and administrative services to NYC public schools.

He began working for what was then the Board of Education in 1980 as an assistant accountant and rose to various positions in the Chancellor's Office and the Budget Office, including Special Assistant to the Director of the Office of Budget Operations and Review, before being named as Director of Operations for the Division of Special Education.

He then served for seven years at the NYC Health & Hospitals Corporation, beginning as Associate Executive Director of the City's Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and rising to Chief Operating Officer of the Harlem Hospital Center. Returning to the Department of Education, Vincent worked directly in the Bronx, as Deputy Superintendent of Operations in District Nine and then as Executive Director of the Bronx Regional Operations Center, before moving to executive positions in the Central Office.

Of all his professional successes and triumphs, his biggest successes and proudest achievements were his children and grandchild. He loved them more than life itself, and beamed with pride at their accomplishments. He was able to be their coach for various sporting teams and their personal coach in navigating life. He instilled the importance of God, family, honesty, education, reading, love of fashion, as well as many other values within them. His unconditional love, guidance, support, and wisdom will be held in the hearts of his children forever.

Vincent is predeceased by his father, Vincent Sr., as well as sisters Beverly and Rebecca. He is survived by his mother Gladys, his four children Noelle, Alexis, Stephanie, Vincent III, and granddaughter Peyton, as well as aunts, cousins, extended family, and friends.

Visiting at the Flynn Memorial Home, 1652 Central Park Avenue, Yonkers, NY 10710, on Friday, August 10th from 4:00 to 8:00 pm.

Visiting at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, Harlem, NY on Saturday Morning, August 11th from 9:00 to 10:00 am. A Funeral Mass will begin at 10 am. Committal will follow at Woodlawn Cemetery, Bronx, NY.
