John Charles Dark passed away peacefully on January 24, 2019 surrounded by his family.

John was born October 6, 1949 in Fresno, California to John “Jack” Anderson Dark and Barbara Ellen Simmons. According to stories, John was a delightful little boy and full of adventure. During the late ‘60’s he met his first wife, Sally. Though their union was short, they had one child they named Michelle. In 1981, John moved to Charlo, Montana and finally felt at home. John was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in 1983 and shortly after met and married Pamela Maughan. In 1987 they welcomed their son Scott and were divorced a couple years later. John was a MoorMan’s salesman for many years traveling the Mission Valley, a crane operator traveling the state and country, and a rancher. In 1993 he met and married the love of his life, Judy Barnhart. Together they raised Scott and Judy’s daughter Angela Schuman.

John is survived by his wife Judy; daughter Michelle (Scott), and her children Wayne, Amy (Kyle), Jarod, Shane, and Danielle; his son Scott (Autumn) and their children Kenzley, Stetson, Maverick and Shawnie; step-daughter Angela; great-grandchildren Annabelle, Jameson, Evin and Ean; brother Bill (Robin) and their sons Tom (Lisa) and Ryan. John was blessed with so many wonderful and devoted friends. His family appreciates all the love and support given at this time. John loved you all!

I just wanted to reach out and give my condolences to the family of Mr. John Dark. I am a nurse and met John when he started seeing his nephrologist. He was always one of my favorite patients. We even made a trip up to see John when he was in the skilled nursing facility in Polson at the end of the year. He had a wonderful, positive energy that I will always remember him for.

I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to John's family on his passing. While I will miss his positive, "let's git 'er done" attitude, we can all take comfort in knowing he is in a better place now!
