Benjamin Lynn Clark, 44, of St. Anthony Idaho, passed away at his home on May 24, 2021, after a long battle with multiple sclerosis.

Ben was born April 19, 1977, to Brent and Patricia Clark in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He was their second child and only son, joining his older, and favorite, sister Tera.

Brent and Patricia divorced when Ben was 3, and Ben grew up with his mother and sister in Shelley ID, Fluorescent MO, and St. Anthony, ID. Ben cherished both his mother and sister and was a devoted and caring son and brother.

Ben attended grade school in Shelley, Fluorescent, and St. Anthony, Jr. High in St. Anthony, and he graduated from South Fremont High School in St. Anthony. He served an LDS mission in the Washington D.C. South Mission from 1996-1998.

On March 24, 2000, he married Stephanie Hathaway in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple. Ben and Stephanie are the parents of 6 children: William (Shaylin), Elizabeth, Ella, Elaina, Elila, and Westley, all of St. Anthony.

Ben attended college in Washington and Idaho, graduating from Idaho State University with a bachelors degree in Accounting in 2008. Ben and Stephanie made homes in Issaquah, WA; Idaho Falls, ID; Pocatello, ID; Eagle River, AK; and St. Anthony, ID.

Ben was a devoted father, and he cares deeply for his children. They were the joy and light of his life. He loved talking with them and spending time with them. He spent the majority of his effort and time in taking care of them and always wanted to be near them. He passed his witty sense of humor and matter-of-fact way of thinking on to them.

Ben is preceded in death by his grandparents Delbert and Mildred Clark; and Robert and Eleanor Brownell; and by his father Brent. He is survived by his wife and children; his mother Patricia of St. Anthony, ID; and his sister Tera (Christian) Sheppard of Leander, TX.

My name is Jake Hamilton. Ben and I were mission companions in the Hamilton area. I joined him about this time of year in 1997. He was the zone leader at the time. I was Google mapping my mission today and found the apartment we used to live in. It was in Purcellville, VA. I then tried to find him on the internet to send him the picture and say hello (for the first time since we were missionaries) but I found his obituary instead. I am so sorry for your loss. He was an effective missionary and I learned a lot from him. I've always been glad I served with him. It was a turning point in my mission. I am sad he is gone, but I'm sure he is close to you. I attached a screenshot of our apartment above Nichols Hardware. It looks the same as it did then except the window on the left was a door with a waist-high rail at the time. One of his youth converts from Fredericksburg (I think) stayed the night with us here during his Christmas break once. I hope this little memory opens a window to you from his mission. God bless you all especially as you prepare for your first Thanksgiving and Christmas without him. I know the empty chair will be painful at this time of year. Sincerely, Jake Hamilton
