Steven Robert Clarke, 58, of Pleasant Hill, MO passed away with his family by his side on April 6, 2021, following his heroic battle with Glioblastoma (brain CA).
Steve was born on November 29, 1962 in Hampton, VA. He attended school at Daniel J. Gross High School in Omaha, NE. He graduated from Creighton University in 1986 with a BA in Business Administration/Marketing. His career in business focused primarily on managed healthcare services. Steve was a devoted, loving husband and father to his wife and sons. Full of energy he enjoyed softball, marathons, and golfing with his buddies. He was a huge sports fan, forever devoted to his beloved NE Huskers and Creighton Bluejays. He loved hosting gatherings and thoroughly enjoyed cooking; his family deemed him chef and grill master.
