Spencer H. Clark

Spencer H.  Clark Spencer Clark, age 30, of Manhattan, died Friday November 24, 2017 in Manhattan.

Spencer was born September 1, 1987 in Corvallis, Oregon, where his parents moved after graduating from K-State. Upon the family’s return to Kansas, Spencer lived and grew up in Manhattan, Kansas. Spencer was a kind and gentle person. He had many friends who only had good things to say about him. He was dearly loved.

Spencer was perpetually building and making things and leaves a large body of work across many disciplines for such a young man. He was talented as a painter, sculptor, built paint ball guns, car suspensions and engines, furniture, lamps, computers and bicycles. If you ever saw someone ride a tall bike in Manhattan it was most likely built by Spencer. He never half did anything. He was relentless in his passion about all his projects bringing all of them to completion.

Spencer was a very good driver and loved cars especially old Toyotas and Hondas. He enjoyed meeting his friends and fellow car enthusiasts at the Friday and Saturday night Car Meets. He was excited about working on his current project an engine build on his 1983 Toyota Corolla station wagon with his good friend Ryan. His Christmas wish list was filled with equipment and parts for his shop.

He had many customers as a bike mechanic who missed him after Big Poppi’s closed. His many friends included other people who made things. He was a quiet man, but if you got him started about one of his projects he would really get to talking. He was deeply loved and will be missed by his Parents Miriam Clark & Tim Clark, Stepmother Lorna Clark, brothers Logan Clark, Jon, Jordon & Austin Bell. Grandmother Margene Clark, Aunts Hania Hower, Theresa Weigel, Ann Clark, Kathy Finan, Shawna Millentree, Julie Clark. Uncles are Ken Clark, Peter Shaheed and George Shaheed.
