Clark was born in Michigan, which is where he met his wife, Susan Orellana-Clark. They married in 1999, and moved to Spencerport, Orellana-Clark's hometown, in 2000. There, they had two daughters, who are now ages 3 and 9.
Orellana-Clark was in Texas video chatting with her husband on April 30 when he collapsed suddenly.
For a time, Clark's family believed that he'd been shot, due to the way he fell forward and what they thought was a bullet hole in the closet behind him. Army Criminal Investigation Command has since said that was not the case; that Clark's body had no trauma beyond minor scrapes and a possible broken nose, which was likely suffered when he fell forward.
An investigation into the cause of his death is continuing.
