Stephon Keith Clark was born on his mother’s birthday, September 27, 1982 at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. He is the eldest son of Samuel K. and Janet Clark. He attended primary through high school in Detroit and graduated from Bishop Gallagher High in 2000. He then relocated to Mesquite, Texas with his parents and brother and spent a brief period in the U.S. Airforce and attended Midwestern University in Wichita Falls Texas.
Early in life, he became a member at the Wyoming Avenue Church of Christ in Detroit, Michigan, where he actively participated in the youth ministry. During this time, he was part of back-to-back Bible Bowl Championship winning teams. In April 2019, he became a member at Greenville Church of Christ in Richardson, Texas, where he remained a member until his death.
He left college after a year and moved to Norman Oklahoma where he took up trades in auto repair, telemarketing, and sales. He returned to Texas and took courses in the entertainment and radio production industry. After those endeavors, he discovered his love and passion, the freedom and solitude of long-haul truck driving. While enjoying this passion, he was able to fulfill another, music, and video production. Steph built a music studio in his truck where he also spent time producing short videos and songs.
We thank God for blessing him the past five years to drive across America—where he felt free as a bird. Stephon departed this life on Saturday morning November 24, 2020.
