When Meadow Valley resident Welles (Capt. Carl) Clarke, Jr. died in August of 2015, he left nearly $1.6 million to local organizations.
A significant portion of the former Merchant Marine and yachtsman’s estate — approximately $1 million — was distributed in September 2016. The largest amount, $700,00 was given to Plumas Arts, with several smaller amounts given to other groups.
Now the remainder of the estate has been divided just in time for Christmas. The two largest checks —$100,000 each — are being given to Meadow Valley Fire Department and the Plumas District Hospital Foundation.
Jack Brown is the executor of the estate and received assistance from local attorneys David Luddington and Jan Klement.
