Nathan Clark

Robert Nathan Clark passed away February 16, 2021. He was 39. Nathan was born in Morenci, Arizona, on December 18, 1981, to Robert and Vickie Clark. In 1985 his family moved to Thatcher where he attended school until he graduated in 2000. He played the quads in the school band and took classes at EAC. Nathan began working at Safeway as a teenager and went on to become an Assistant Manager. In 2010 he welcomed the joy of his life, his son Robert Rowan Clark. In June of 2017, Nathan graduated from the Eastern Arizona Academy of Cosmetology. He had a career at Great Clips where his coworkers became more than just coworkers, they were more like friends and family. The girls lovingly referred to him as their protector. Nathan had a love for spending time with his son and fiancé, playing the drums, music, his pets, random interesting facts and painting. He would often send song links to friends and family when he knew they were having a difficult time. He loved big and he felt deeply. We have been thankful for all the stories people have shared about how Nathan reached out to them when they were hurting and when he performed random acts of kindness. We are thankful to have been able to love him and he will be missed more than he could have ever imagined. Nathan followed his father Robert Earl Clark in death by just 13 days. He is survived by: son, Robert Rowan Clark; fiancé, Lisa Rothleutner; mother, Vickie Clark; brother, Ryan (Norma) Smith; sisters, Jackie (Jason) Bryce and Kayleen (Nick) Leachet. A joint Celebration of Life event to follow for Robert and Nathan. Carry on my wayward son There'll be peace when you are done Lay your weary head to rest Don't you cry no more

I remember going into Safeway and every time he was a checker I would get in his line. He was the sweetest person and we would talk as much as we can about my kids, and his son with what time we had checking out. I am truly sorry for the whole family. God Bless you all.

You dont know my family, but I would like to share a memory of a kindness Nathan did for me. I was several miles away from home. My special-needs son was giving me some trouble. He got out of my vehicle, determined to walk home from where we had parked in Thatcher, clear to Pima. Nathan was driving by and recognized my son as a customer from when he worked at Safeway. Nathan had no idea where we lived, but he kindly drove my son all the way to Pima and got him home safe. I have never forgotten what Nathan did. It was several months later before I found out who it was that had done this kindness for us. It was your family member, Nathan. Thank you & God bless you.

My deepest sympathy to his entire family at the loss of such a gentle soul. I will always cherish the times we worked together at Safeway back in the day & seeing his cheery face each day he worked at GC. The love, compassion & care he gave to the little boy scared of getting hair cut is the way I will always remember Nathan. Kind and tender.. our world is sadder today and tomorrow without him. May you rest in peace! God Bless the family and friends.
