Brian Wayne Clark, 53, of Sugarcreek Township, went to be with the Lord on September 13th, 2021. He was born in Dayton, Ohio on August 28th, 1968.

Brian was a Dayton local his entire life. He was a graduate of Patterson Co-Op in 1986 and later Sinclair Community College. A proud U.S Veteran, Brian served in the United States Army from 1986 to 1994.

Through the early years of his career, Brian cultivated an incredibly strong work ethic and dedication to whatever he was pursuing. In 2004 when the opportunity presented itself, he opened his own company and built a successful automation business, Integrated Design Solutions, with his great friend and colleague Steve Kracus. Brian wore many hats at IDS from Engineer, Assembler, Programmer, Field Service, whatever was needed Brian would do. He was a friend to everyone and a good ear to anyone who needed it. From day one he took the approach of operating the company as if it were a family. Brian had intense determination and zero quit. In business just as he was in life, Brian was about giving more than what was promised.

He loved being a father and watching his kids play baseball and softball. He also enjoyed fishing, hunting, hiking, boating, his dog Liberty, and just about any activity with his family. Family was everything to him. He was always a man of his word and strongly believed that hard work pays off.

Brian was a selfless man, who constantly helped and cared for those around him. His faith in God and the message of hope he spread will always be remembered by the Jesus coins he shared with friends and strangers alike. Brian will leave a large hole in the hearts of many, but his never-ending love will live on forever.

Isaiah 42:16: “I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.”

Brian is survived by his wife of 26 years, Tanya Dawn Clark (Stuckey), Son Cody Wayne Clark (23), Daughter Kaley Dawn Clark (19), Sister Renee Nicole Clark, Father Lonnie Wayne Clark, Mother Bridget Ann Clark, Father-In-Law Ivan Francis Stuckey Jr, and the many friends who have become family over the years.

Visitation will be held at Tobias Funeral Home in Beavercreek (3970 Dayton Xenia Rd, Dayton, OH 45432) on Saturday, September 18th at 10 a.m. with the service beginning at 11:30 a.m. and burial to follow at Valley View Memorial Gardens in Xenia.

Brian was my biological brother. As a little girl I remember every visit included a barbie doll! He never visited empty handed! I remember him taking me to sears in his red trans am and feeling so cool! I haven't seen or spoken to him in well over 20 years. I'm saddened to hear of his passing! I'm super sorry I never got to connect with him as an adult. Seeing what I've seen and seeing the photos of him with his family makes me smile! He had a great life! My sincere condolences to his wife, children and family and friends.

My heart hurts as grief never ends. We learn to live through it. Prayers to all during the days and times ahead.

I am forever gr8ful to have had the blessing of you in my life. As I tear up writing this know you’ll always be with me. I can’t express how much you meant to me with words but know the hundreds of people I’ve helped and touched were your doing. Tonya, Cody and Kaley are the perfect family to signify who you were and what your beliefs instilled in everyone you touched. I’ll continue my best to teach as you did and love unconditionally as you did me!
My sincerest heart felt sympathy to Tonya Cody, Kaley and those who cared for you.

Forever your friend

Brian, Cass, Alexander, and Caleb

My condolences to Brian’s wife and children as well as to his dad and his wife…Most of my best memories from being kids and growing up is of having Brian as my cousin but was more like another brother to me I remember all the times riding bikes hanging out going to the arcade and to the reds games and Kings island and just having fun. We lost touch for a few years and it saddens me that you have passed but I know your in a better place so with love I say rest peacefully and we will see you again .

I worked with Brian on some of the beginning projects of my career. I have learned a ton from him. He was always friendly and willing to discuss even the farthest detail of a project so that I could learn. I wish the Clark family and friends the best in recovering during these sad times. He will always be remembered. Till we meet again.

Dear Clark family,
I will only ever remember Mr. Clark being awesome!! I’ll never forget seeing him at all the baseball games and our families going out while in Florida together. Mr. Clark was even kind enough to host me for a whole week one time while my parents were house hunting in Boston. Kaley and I had the time of our lives that week, and I am forever thankful for Mr. Clark’s hospitality.
Some personal memories that I will never forget are the zip line that he built in the backyard for Kaley and her friends. It was so fun!! The best, though, were his peekaboo waffles!!
All of these memories I have all point to one thing: that Mr. Clark was a very giving, family oriented man and will be missed by many. Sending prayers and hugs your way,
Ava Mezzanotte
