Will, 104, and
Lois, 101, Clark
At age 100, four years ago, Dr. Will Clark
of Arizona not only bought a new van but
drove it, accompanied by Lois, to Illinois
to visit their daughter! Will and Lois
Clark are one of the very few centenarian
couples in America, with Lois having reached
the century mark in 2007. The van is

was born in South Dakota and raised in Iowa.
He graduated from dental
school at the beginning of
the Great Depression, but was able to
maintain a private practice for 20 years.
During World War II he served in the South
Pacific for three years, leaving Lois to
raise their three young children. He
then stayed in the military where he
practiced dentistry for another 20 years
before retiring. And an active retirement
it has been.
Will says he loves to travel and
he and Lois have visited every U.S. state
and several foreign countries. He believes
in staying both physically and mentally
active, and enjoys reading, daily walks and
playing golf. He also enjoys riding horses
when he has the opportunity.
