With deepest sorrow, we announce that Robert (Andy) Clark, our brilliant blue-eyed son, brother, life-partner, father figure, family member and dearest friend passed suddenly from natural causes on Tuesday, July 21st, 2020.
Everyone who knew Rob will miss his infectious belly laugh and smile that could lift-up a room. His compassion and gentle soul brought joy and love to all those that were blessed to be a part of his life and he will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Rob was not one to shy away from challenges and he loved and lived life to the fullest and always made sure to ride as fast as he could.
Rob was born on October 23rd, 1978 and was raised in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He graduated from Oshkosh West High School in 1997, and after a bit of newly found freedom and soul searching, decided to shape-up and ship-out for the Army in 1999 where he was stationed in South Korea. Upon his return, he received a business degree from the University of Wisconsin, but quickly realized his passion for motorcycles and moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where he graduated in 2006 from the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute.
In 2007 Rob made the trek to the east coast and settled in North Carolina, a place he called home, where he could ride his Harley year-round as well as pursue his career as General Manager of Cox’s Harley Davidson in Asheboro, NC, and Double Eagle Harley Davidson in Pinehurst, NC. He was extremely dedicated, a hard worker and was so proud to be a part of the company and the family he worked with.
Rob loved to travel and throughout his life made his way across most of the U.S, including time spent in the Teton Mountains in Wyoming as a river rafting guide. Of course, any opportunity to take the Harley on a road trip or cruise in the mountains would never be passed up. One of his greatest loves was to be free on the road on his bike with the wind whipping past and the weight of the world behind him.
Rob leaves behind his parents Robert and Jacalyn Clark, sister Laura Clark and her husband David Meyers, nephew Alaster Jewitt, life-partner Rebecca Blackburn and her two daughters Rileigh and Aubree whom he loved as his own, and many aunts, uncles, cousins and beloved friends.
Family and friends are invited to a visitation and celebration of life on Wednesday, July 29th, 2020 from 2:00 pm-4:00 pm at Boles Funeral Home located at 425 W. Pennsylvania Ave, Southern Pines, NC 28387 where Covid-19 guidelines will be followed.
