EDDIE CLARK, STONEMASON ~





Native Vermonter Edward Clark passed away 2 August 2015 in Guilford, Vermont. His local obituary was filled with a deep personal family history — many kids, many grandkids, wife, long time residency in the town. What it didn't mention was Eddie was a stonemason, a very good one. I bicycled today to one of his many stonewalls to nab a detail photograph of the wall for the Birdhouse as I remember this fellow who I sometimes worked with on other job locations dealing with treework, laying in firewood, plus Eddie's expertise with a bulldozer shaping at least two large farm ponds I once tended to around those ponds for the owner with my scythe.
