Duane Keith Clark Obituary
DUANE KEITH CLARK
On November 6, 1959, a delightful baby boy named Duane Keith Clark became a blessing to Jacille and Donald Clark. His dear mother Jacille gave him the precious lifetime nickname "Binky."
Duane was a brilliant and educated man who attended Ina Arbuckle Elementary School and Mission Junior High School. He graduated from Rubidoux High School in 1977. He went on to pursue his education at San Bernardino Valley College.
Duane loved playing sports. He received leadership guidance from his coaches Alonzo "Boogo" Butts, Harry Lee Bratton, Fred Luke and Vic Conyers.
Darryl Tolbert met Duane in Kindergarten. Their friendship grew throughout the years as they played sports and later hit the nightclubs.
Duane was an entrepreneur and a dynamic business man at an early age when he invested in his very own pig business. By the age of 18, he received vocational training as a welder and began his own business, "The Clark Brothers." He utilized his passion for swimming and became an underwater welder in Catalina. He was also employed at E. L. Yeager Company for many years.
Duane Keith Clark passed away on September 7, 2017. He is survived by his mother Jacille Clark of Riverside; brother Ronald Clark (Jennifer) of Highland; sister Sonja Clark Will of Riverside; his aunts Versie Larkin of Denver, Colorado, and Margaret Jean Smith of San Bernardino; his cousin Cleotha Warhop, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends Ziggy Zigford and Tracey Lyton.
Visitation: Monday, September 18 from 4-7pm at Tillman Riverside Mortuary. Celebration of Life: Tuesday, September 19 at 11am at Park Avenue Baptist Church. Burial will be at Olivewood Cemetery.
