Jeffrey Ryan Clark – Jeffrey Ryan Jeff left us, tragically, on November 17, 2012.
Left to mourn his passing are parents, David and Kathleen Clark; sister, Kelly; brother, Anthony; maternal grandparents, Douglas and Audrey Best; the love of his life, Danielle Artuso; her parents, John and Sue and sister, Stephanie; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
He was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Earnie and Annie Clark.
Born in Nanaimo on May 23, 1985, Jeff attended Mountain View School, Nanaimo District Secondary School and Vancouver Island University. He enrolled in the Carpentry program at VIU and just this spring completed the requirements for his Red Seal Certification, making him a Journeyman Carpenter.
He was currently working on constructing the new library on Salt Spring Island. He was employed by Knappett Projects.
Jeff’s love of the outdoors began with growing up in a country setting, being involved in Cubs, Scouts and family camping/fishing trips to Toquart Bay every summer. With his magnetic personality and contagious smile he made friends easily.
We will miss his crazy antics, his sense of humour, adventurousness, loving nature and outgoing personality.
He was a grandson, son, brother, boyfriend, nephew, cousin, friend… we loved him.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, December 1, 2012 from 1-4 p.m. at the Nanaimo Hornets Clubhouse, 6704 Dover Road.
