Dwayne Allen Clark, son of Leonard H. and Patricia Louise (Brady) Clark, was born at Luther an Hospital, Des Moines, Iowa, on October 6, 1963. Dwayne grew up in Des Moines and moved with his family to Missouri. He then moved to Washington State. Dwayne became the father of four kids: James, Christina, Ashley, and Nicole. Dwayne eventually moved to Mount Ayr where he lived the remainder of his life. Dwayne spent his later years as a driver for the Amish community.
Dwayne was not able to be a part of his children’s life as they were growing up. He searched for them and had recently been re-united with them. Family was important to Dwayne and he loved to spend time with everyone. Dwayne would enjoy it even more if their cooking was involved as he appreciated and enjoyed eating. Dwayne had a kind heart and he showed that to his family, friends, and animals. He enjoyed the outdoors and finding the next adventure in life.
