Clark Edward Calquhoun was born December 16, 1963 in Pasadena, California, and died at the age of 53. The cause of death was homicide. Clark is survived by his father, Lawrence Edward Calquhoun, his mother Barbara Ann Sillman Calquhoun, his sister Tammy Calquhoun and brothers Greg and Eric Calquhoun.

Clark also has four surviving children: Michael Calquhoun, Katrina Miller, Hannah Braucht and Andrew Calquhoun. He is also survived by six grandchildren: Rylee, Aria, Conrad, Payton, Logan and Eliana.

Clark graduated from North Thurston High School in Olympia, Washington in 1982. After high school he worked in construction for a year in Fairbanks, Alaska. Later he worked in Portland, Oregon, where he developed his skills as a master craftsman painter, working on new luxury homes, finishing custom cabinets and millwork packages. Clark's work lives on to this day for the lucky few who undoubtedly still enjoy and admire his quality workmanship.

After living in Portland, Clark moved to Olympia, Washington, where he continued to practice his craft. Clark was a loving, caring individual and will be missed by all who knew him. His children are a testament to and reflection of his character. Many of you were touched by his life, his contributions and sincere heart. He will forever be deeply missed and always loved by those who knew him.

For those of us who knew Clark, he had his demons as we all do. We have all felt the hurt and pain of watching him struggle over the years, yet he is still deeply loved. We all have our own path to take, and Clark took his. Ironically, Clark's path has brought us all closer together.

Clark, we love and will always miss you. You have so much to teach us all in this tragedy. Goodbye from your father, mother, brothers, sister, children and grandchildren, friends and all the loved ones who knew you and have always loved you. Your demons can no longer torture you...you can now rest in peace.
