Clark Daniel Rodmon, 79, passed away on April 1, 2022, in Pueblo, Colo. Clark was born to Vera and Mike Rodmon on Jan. 22, 1943.

Clark was a Pueblo native and attended East High School where he played basketball, baseball, and football. He was part of the second graduating class from East High School in 1961 and then played football at the University of Northern Colorado before graduating from the University of Southern Colorado. He also obtained his master’s degree from Western State College with his wife.

Clark loved fly-fishing on the Arkansas River, spending time in Cripple Creek, and working on his family ranch in Texas. He dedicated a significant portion of his life and energy to molding and mentoring youth through sports. He adored his wife, his children, his pets, and spending time with his granddaughters. He will always be in our hearts as we remember his kindness to others and vivaciousness towards life.

  1. CandleImageClark was a great guy. I had the honor with playing baseball with him at East. Later at CSU Pueblo I got to know him and Gregg White in some of my classes. Clark had a great sense of humor and was just a great guy to be around. We both became elementary PE teachers eventually and I taught in New Jersey and Clark in Colorado. My deepest sympathy for Clark’s family and sister Pat and her husband Dick. Clark will always be remembered as not only a super nice guy but one of the best 3 star athletes to every play at East High School and the city of Pueblo.

  2. CandleImagecandace, I know your faith will get you through this. I am sorry to reply but my mom passed away

  3. Clark you helped me so much. You were the best mentor I could have asked for. You brought so much fun and knowledge to the children at Beulah Heights. I will never forget you and you will be deeply missed. God bless you Candace and family.

  4. CandleImageI’ll always remember Coach Rodman as an happy enthusiastic man who inspired many a young man as a newly minted football coach. His enthusiasm was contagious! Especially welcoming his former players visiting his new home, wife and children with 12 packs in hand! It was a short visit. But quite memorable! RIP, Coach! You are missed!

  5. Candace, Travis & Lexi, We are so very sorry to learn of Clark’s passing. Our families had such fun together. We our love your way.

  6. My heart is saddened to hear of Clark’s passing…

    I had the pleasure of knowing, & working with Clark at the First national Bank when we were both just kids attending college in Pueblo. I managed the ticket desk while Clark & several other college guys were the car attendants…My then boyfriend, (husband now deceased, John Salimeno, Central High) & Clark played sports opposite one another & they would talk sports when John came to see me at the bank. John had a high respect for Clark & appreciation of his athletic talent…

    Clark was a joy to be around…His infectious smile, his easy going & pleasant personality, & his continual humor was truly welcoming each day at work… After my college graduation & relocating from Pueblo, I hadn’t seen Clark since those memorable days, but I have never forgot what a special young man he was…

    My heartfelt thoughts & condolences to his family…

  7. Clark was a good and kind man. We have many great memories of Coach from Beulah Heights. Heartfelt condolences to your family.

  8. Candace. Travis & Lexi We want to express our heartfelt sympathy. We always thought the Rodman family were very special people. When I taught at Beulah Heights with Clark he always had a great smile, usually something funny to say & always so kind to everyone! The kids loved their Coach & he loved them too! May all your wonderful memories help at this difficult time.

  9. My sincere condolences to the Rodman family for this great loss!!! He was a true gentleman, all around good guy with a wonderful family! My prayers to all during this difficult time!!! 🙏🏻

  10. Candace, Travis and Lexi, Clark was one of my very first mentors. I was blessed to work with two of the best elementary PE teachers in District 60, Clark Rodman and Paul Cason. Candace your not going to believe this but I ended up doing a 110 this year at Beulah Heights and found all three of our lesson plans from 1989. Can’t believe we had three teachers here. I loved those guys because the took in a young kid and made me a better person and teacher. My deepest condolences, Jerry Sisneros

  11. Coach you will be missed by many. Both my girls and I included. You were their coach at Beulah Heights Elementary. Lord Jesus please be with the family during this difficult time.

  12. My condolences to the Rodmon family.
    The support and respect I received from Coach Rodmon while running at Central has been the foundation of my own coaching philosophy over the past 30 years.
    Thank you.

  13. I knew Clark when I was the yard boy at the Belmont Club and he was a lifeguard. He was
    20 or so and I was 14, a big age difference at the time. Even so he was always good to me,
    making jokes and bringing me along on his errands. I wrecked his car one day just horsing
    around and I was full of remorse and more ashamed than I’d ever been. He could have
    clouded up and rained all over me, but he just laughed and said everything would be all
    right. (I mowed lawns all summer to pay for the damage just the same.) He teased me about
    it for the next couple years, but always in his good-natured way. I never forgot the
    example he set, his good humor, and the kindness that he showed to a foolish kid. I’m sure
    I wasn’t the last.

  14. Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.

  15. Sad news. I got to know Clark thru coaching against him in football & later he & his family were my neighbors for a number of years. Great personality & I enjoyed my time with him. Great guy!!
    Wishing the very best under these circumstances to his wonderful family.
    RIP, my good friend.

  18. CandleImageClark was such an amazing man!!!! One of my favorite memories was when him and I went fishing on the Arkansas. It was one of my favorite days ever on that River. Our group of friends were so lucky to have such amazing parents growing up. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
