David Alan Clarke
June 26, 1955 ‒ February 24, 2020
David Alan Clarke, age 64 of Marion, passed away suddenly on Monday, February 24, 2020 at Marion General Hospital.
David was born on June 26, 1955 to Robert and Lorrie (Lynch) Clarke in Cincinnati Ohio. He graduated from Moeller High School and went on to receive his Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Finance at The Ohio State University.
David loved to golf and did so whenever he had the chance. He enjoyed the beach, frequenting Myrtle Beach with his family, though he always mentioned that he would have loved to go back to Ubatuba Beach in Brazil. David was an avid griller and would grill rain or shine, no matter what the weather. Through his career, he got to travel and see the world and loved to do so. Though his children were the light of his life and loved them so much, his dog, Lady, was very important to him and he loved her dearly.
David is survived by his children: Chris (Tiffany) Clarke, Elizabeth (Edward) Eckard and Kimberly Clarke; siblings: Mark, Thomas, and Paul (Jackie) Clarke, Joyce (Joe) Emberton, and Diane (Dave) Schlosser, grandchildren Noah Eckard, Adah Clarke, Zoe Clarke, Tessa Clarke, and soon-to-be Symona Clarke. His beloved dog Lady will also miss him dearly.
David is preceded in death by his parents Robert and Lorrie Clarke and infant grandson Gregory Clarke.
