Gatlin Shawn Clark
1996 to 2010
Gatlin Shawn Clark (Our Hero) passed away Saturday evening at his home in Tularosa surrounded by family and friends. He has gone to heaven to be with the Lord after a long, hard-fought battle with cancer. Gatlin was born on April 8, 1996.
Gatlin is survived by his father, Shawn Paul Clark, of Gilbert, Ariz.; his mother, Judy Clark, of Tularosa; brother Dusty Zolman, of Tularosa; two sisters, Saisha Clark and Shanae Clark, both of Tularosa; and his grandparents Bill and Sandi Clark, of Silver City, and Bill and Dean Stroud, of Deming. He also has two nephews, Sterling Zolman and Wyatt Zolman, of Tularosa; one aunt, Kristy Clark, of Silver City; two uncles, Philip Stroud, of Kona, Hawaii, and James Stroud, of Enid, Okla.; and his cousins Nathan Engelbrecht, of Phoenix, Jeffery Engelbrecht, of Las Cruces, Carey White, of Silver City, Caleb Stroud, of Kona, and Joshua Stroud, from Adrienne, Mich.
Gatlin was 14 and had been fighting cancer for two and a half years. There will be a memorial service for this wonderful young man on Thursday, June 24, 2010, at 4 p.m. at the Tays Center in Alamogordo. There will be a potluck reception and celebration of life at the home of Rich and Marion Thorpe on Gentry Lane in La Luz after the service. It was Gatlin's wish that everyone wear your Gat's Guardian or Ride for the Cure T-shirts or your favorite team jersey or T-shirt or any other casual wear you choose. He didn't stand too much on ceremony.
The Clark family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the arrangements. Cremation will take place locally at PCS.
