Timothy Clark

Timothy M. Clark passed away unexpectedly on May 25, 2022, at the age of 55. A cherished husband, father, and friend, Tim’s absence will be felt deeply by those who knew him.

Tim grew up in Tiburon with his parents, Darrell and Kay Clark, and sister, Megan. His happiest childhood memories were all about the outdoors: snow skiing in Tahoe, waterskiing with his family, and sailing his Laser sailboat. He graduated from Saint Ignatius High School in San Francisco and completed his business degree at University of California at Santa Barbara.

In 1994, Tim married his wife, Susie (Fetzer). They were blessed with two children, Alyssa and Zachary. Their brood also included many furry friends over the years. Tim was overjoyed when Alyssa decided to attend his alma mater, UC Santa Barbara. He reveled in Alyssa’s stories of her time there. Tim shared his love of baseball with his son, Zack, spending many seasons coaching Little League and travel baseball teams. Tim and Zack continued to bond over baseball, both die-hard Giants fans. He enjoyed a successful career as a sales manager, effortlessly connecting with people along the way. Tim’s passion for cars, especially Vipers and Jeeps, often matched his passion for his wife and kids. As a family, memories were made camping, fishing and spending time with dear friends.

Recently, Tim and Susie started a new chapter by moving to Reno. Satisfying a long-time dream of Tim’s, they began exploring the Western states in their motor home. His never-ending sense of adventure drew him to the desert areas of Reno where he cruised in his side-by-side.

Tim is survived by his wife, Susie; his children, Alyssa and Zack; his mother, Kay; and sister, Megan. He is preceded in death by his father, Darrell Clark.

A Celebration of Life is being held at the Petaluma Golf and Country Club on Friday, August 19, 2022 at 10am. We’d love if you could join us. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Petaluma National Little League.
