OBITUARY

William Mark Clark

July 10, 1957October 12, 2020

William Mark Clark, 63, passed away peacefully on October 12, 2020 after a courageous battle with Leukemia that was diagnosed in 2019. Mark was born on July 10, 1957 to his parents William Harper and Regina Abicht Clark of Govans, MD. Mark attended St. Mary’s Govans and graduated high school from Loyola Blakefield in 1975. He continued his education at UMBC graduating with his bachelors in 1979. While attending Loyola and UMBC he enjoyed and participated competitively in Basketball and Tennis. Mark enjoyed fly fishing and fine wine. His journey took him to be a financial advisor with Alex Brown in 1982. He completed his career with UBS Financial Services at the Hunt Valley Office. Mark was a faithful member of the Eeshan Religion. Mark is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Elizabeth Corder Clark; beloved father of Julia Clark Isaza (Hamed Isaza), Catherine Clark, Peter Clark (Chloè Lukas), Margaret Clark, Grace Clark, Olivia Clark, Jane Clark, Mary Elena “Ellie” Clark; devoted son of William Clark and his wife Eileen Clark; dear brother of Jeanne Clark Lipon, Patricia Clark, Robert Clark, Michael Clark and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mark wanted me to share with all our family and friends that his most meaningful “glory days” were experienced during his time working to help propagate the Eeshan Religion. His wish was for every person in the world to get a copy of the book. He was adamant about this as he had the doctors, nurses and social workers promise they would get it. When he couldn’t read he asked them to read to him. Tributes come and go-this I know-Mark believed was life-sustaining. The title of the book is “Are You Still Mine?” written by Eesha/Mary Ellen Lukas. She is the woman he says made a relationship with God not bound by church law but a spiritual choice placed by God within each person’s heart. (Excerpts from Mark’s writing)

Mark- you welcomed me with open arms when I joined Alex. Brown, and I'll never forget your kindness.
The only thing larger than your frame was your heart!
May you rest easy brother.

Our deepest sympathy and love to Beth and family. We have known Mark since we first met Mary Ellen over 20 years ago. We always admired his kindness, compassion and willingness to help. He was the epitome of a gentleman and his easy smile and buoyant spirit will be sorely missed. He was an inspiration to us. We are thankful to have known him.

First of all, I pass my condolences to Mark's entire family and I encourage to dwell on the many great memories shared with Mark. We share your loss!
I had the pleasure of recruiting and coaching Mark for UMBC basketball. We were starting a program and needed quality players who were excellent students, passionate, winners and unselfish. Additionally, and maybe more importantly, they needed to be good people and fun to be around. Mark Clark was all of the above and very humble.
We knew that Mark would be a very important contributor to UMBC Basketball and finally convinced Bill Clark to trust his son to us. Mark was a coach's dream and sacrificed for the benefit of the team whether he started or came off the bench. Mark's major contribution were usually on the defensive end and I remember our eye contact following his many key subtle plays.
It was not suprising that Mark was a successful business man and a great family guy. I love you Mark and thank you for the time/experiences which we shared.
Peace, Coach Billy Jones

I was stunned to hear of the passing of Mark from Brian Shannon. He was all about family and friends and his beliefs. There were many times at Brick Bodies that we would stop a workout to just talk about what was on our minds and in our hearts. I think back at how important those discussions were to me. He was raised by great parents ( I had the honor of being coached by his Father in basketball at St. Mary's Govans) and he possessed the best qualities that they instilled in him. Mark was a great human being and will be forever missed. Rest in Peace

William will always be remembered and respected for his kindness towards me and my family. He was one of the nicest people that I've met in my life.
Williams and his family took my family on a weekend trip a few years ago, and we had such a great time. I wish I could and I would have done anything to bring him back, but he is in a better place with He whom he loved so much.
I am respecting William's wish and have purchased the book, "Are you Still Mine?" and will help William to reach his goal of having everyone in the world to getting a copy of the book.
Rest in Peace William Mark Clark

One of my most fond memories of Mark came in 2013, while preparing to attend an event titled, “Bourbon & Bowties”. Mark was known to be a bow-tie connoisseur, and upon seeing my multiple failed attempts to tie the darn thing, he calmly walked over and gave me a hand. He then proceeded to have me re-tie it, making sure I actually learned the steps. Mark was the definition of gentleman and a true mentor. His compassion for his family, friends and clients was unsurpassed. Mark’s epiousios spirit will live on in all those who were fortunate enough to cross paths.

Very sad to learn of his passing. Mark and I played on the same UMBC Basketball team for three years. We spent a lot of time together and would hang around after Saturday practices to talk about many things. He was a very bright and likeable guy, a cool dude for sure. I hadn’t seen him in years but we texted a few times. My condolences go out to his family and I also want to thank his Dad for being a great fan and true Gentleman. I will never forget Mark and May he Rest In Peace.
