A large crowd is expected to converge on the small community of Shandon tomorrow to pay tribute Judge William Clark, who died Saturday.
He was from the quiet of a ranch in Shandon but three Presidents called him by first name, and at least one often called him for advice.
Judge Clark was a rancher, who served under President Ronald Regan in the early 80's as Deputy Secretary of State, National Security Advisor and Secretary of the Interior. He served on the California Supreme Court before that from 1969 to 1981.
Clark was a judge of the Superior Court of California from 1969 to 1971 and an associate justice of the California State Supreme Court from 1973 to 1981.
In recent years he had been struggling with Parkinson's disease and died at home at age 81. Locals who knew him well say the country, and the Central Coast lost one of the great ones this week.
