September 6, 1950 – December 27, 2012
DeWayne Eugene Clarke, 62, of Ankeny, Iowa, died Thursday, December 27th.
A visitation will be held 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Wednesday, January 2, 2012 at Prairie Ridge Church in Ankeny.
Funeral services will then be held the same day at 1:00 p.m., with a luncheon to follow.
DeWayne was born in Sioux Falls, SD, was a graduate of Hawarden High School, and earned an accounting degree from C.E. School of Commerce in Omaha. At age 17, he was gravely injured, but was never a man to allow his injuries to determine his life. He and his wife, Mary, overcame many obstacles. He retired from the State of Iowa and has since been self-employed as a property owner and landlord.
DeWayne loved his family and was a man of deep faith. In addition to enjoying teaching the Bible, he enjoyed math, games or puzzles, and teasing his grandchildren. His spirit will be greatly missed.
He will be missed by his wife Mary, his brother John of Davenport, IA, his sister Linda (Don) Jasper of Omaha, NE, his son Adam (Courtney) of Waukee, IA, his daughter Jessica (Joseph) Hanson of Hutto, TX, and four grandchildren; Chloe, Emmett, Teagan and Porter.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Alida Koedam Clarke.Information provided by: Memorial Services of Iowa 4208 North Ankeny Blvd Ankeny, IA 50023 515.964.0592 www.memorialservicesofiowa.com
