Clark (Stump) Terry, 60 years of age, was killed in a motorcycle accident on Sunday, Aug. 19, 2018 at Mile Marker 39 in Big Pine Key, Florida. Stump was born Jan. 29, 1958 in Miami Beach, Florida to the late Jesse and Maxine Terry. He was the only son who shared sibling laughter with his three sisters, Pepper, Shotgun and Jill. His sister, Shotgun preceded him in death.

Stump was educated in the South Broward School System and attended the South Broward High School. He worked as a boat welder in Miami. He had two sons, David and Kyle, with David preceding his father in death. Soon, he followed his sister Pepper to the Florida Keys and made it his lifetime home in 1996. Stump started working for JB Enterprises, building homes. He studied and got his concrete license. He acquired the business, naming it Stump’s Concrete Inc. Stump met his loving wife, Hana Terry, in 2000 and married at Sugarloaf Lodge in 2005. They have shared 18 beautiful years of travel, trips back to Hana’s home country of Czechoslovakia each and every year, where he loved spending time with his new family and enjoying the food and drinks of that country.

Recently, Stump and Hana arranged for a vacation with their four grand-daughters for the month of July. This time together gave him much happiness. Stump was a member of the Moose Lodge in Big Pine Key. He was quick to offer his help on any project needed, helping out a fellow Moose Lodge member in need, playing the “Elf” at the annual community Children Christmas Party. He enjoyed playing the “machines” in the lodge. His next project he was working on with the Lodge was restoring the Tiki. He loved spending time with his beautiful wife, Hana, his family, laughing and always wearing a smile on his face. He was a loving and caring person, devoted husband, father, and friend, always thinking of others. To Stump, family included his friends, the people he rode his Harley with, his employees and his clients in his business. Stump leaves behind and to cherish his loving memory are his son Kyle, his step-children Lenka and Mardin, his four grand-daughters Lea, Nella, Adela and Tiylor, his sisters Pepper and Jill and their families, his many cousins and friends. There will be a Celebration of Life service on Saturday, Aug. 25, at 2 p.m. at the Moose Lodge at Big Pine Key, Florida.
