John Clark Death, Obituary – It is with deep sorrow that we share the news of the passing of John Clark on August 30, 2023. John was a remarkable figure in the civil construction industry and played a pivotal role within Civil Contractors Federation Queensland Limited (CCF QLD). He leaves behind a legacy of dedication, service, and advocacy that has left an indelible mark on the industry.
As the Managing Director of CB Constructions, John’s impact extended far beyond his role. For an impressive 25 years, from 1991 to 2015, he served on the CCF QLD Board. His commitment to progress was evident in his tenure as CCF QLD Branch President from 1996 to 1998, and he also contributed as a national board member during this time.
John’s devotion to the betterment of the civil construction industry in Queensland was unwavering. He dedicated countless hours of his personal time to advocate for locally owned businesses and employee training, reflecting his commitment to the growth and sustainability of the industry.
CB Constructions, the third-generation family business that John co-managed with his brothers Michael, Paul, and Jamie, was established in 1946. Through their leadership, the business thrived and was recognized as a pillar of excellence within the industry. In 2020, the brothers decided to conclude their journey, completing their last civil project and transitioning into a well-deserved retirement.
Beyond his professional achievements, John’s impact reached his personal life. He was a loving husband to Colleen and a caring father to Tim, Jonathon, Paul, Chris, and Penny. Their loss is shared by the entire Clark family, as well as by colleagues and friends who were fortunate to know him.
