Clark A. Gramelspacher, 59, Jasper

Clark A. Gramelspacher, 59, of Jasper, formerly of Indianapolis, entered peacefully into eternal life on Thursday evening, November 18, 2021, in Memorial Hospital after a courageous battle with stage 4 cancer.

Clark was born in Jasper on September 27, 1962, to Eugene and Rosemarie (Berg) Gramelspacher.

He was a 1981 graduate of Jasper High School and graduated from Indiana University with a bachelor’s degree.

Clark was a mortgage broker for most of his life. He was also a professional photographer on the side and was a regularly contributing writer for a national mortgage magazine. Most recently, he was employed as office manager at Gramelspacher Optometry Clinic in Jasper.

He was a member of Saint Joseph Catholic Church in Jasper where he was an active volunteer.

He enjoyed aeronautics, astronomy, weather tracking, snorkeling, and the Smoky Mountains.

Clark was very grateful for the privilege of accompanying World War II veterans on Honor Flights to Washington, D.C.

He is survived by his mother, Rosemarie “Rosie” Gramelspacher of Jasper; two sisters, Adrienne (David “Slick”) Webber of Indianapolis and Adair McPherson of Indianapolis; two brothers, Dr. Craig Gramelspacher and Dr. Curt Gramelspacher, both of Jasper; aunt and uncle John and Liz Berg of Columbia, S.C.; eight nieces and nephews, 11 great-nieces and nephews, and 20 cousins.

Preceding him in death were his father, Gene Gramelspacher, brother-in-law, Gary McPherson, four grandparents, five aunts, four uncles, and four cousins.

Blessed with an outgoing personality and being a kind and generous person, Clark had many friends. He loved them all and felt so grateful to have them in his life. After being part of the planning committee for his 40th high school class reunion, and looking forward to reuniting with his classmates this coming weekend, he will, sadly, be unable to attend. Clark will be with them in spirit though!

Funeral arrangements are pending and will be announced at a later date.

Online condolences may be made at Memorial contributions may be made to Saint Joseph Catholic Church, Jasper, or a favorite charity.

We, Clark’s family, want to express our gratitude to the staff at Memorial Hospital for the outstanding and loving care he received there.


  1. Rosie, I never knew your son, but I have known you and Gene for many years and I was sorry to hear about Clark’s passing. My prayers are with you at this time.
