STUPARYK, Clark Jay Steven

It is with immense sadness that we grieve the passing of Clark Stuparyk: Beloved husband, father, brother and friend, on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 at the age of 52 years.

Born in Elk Point Alberta, Clark moved to B.C. then settled in Calgary where he raised the stars of his life: Kelly and Rebecca. Clark’s greatest achievement was his connection to family and friends, and especially his Lizzy. Their travels and laughter were his joy.

He is survived by his son Kelly and daughter Rebecca Stuparyk, brothers, Kelly (wife Rhonda) and Ken (wife Elaine), numerous nieces and nephews, friends and motorcycle enthusiasts.

  1. I wish to give my deepest sympathies to all of you .
    Clark was a man that left a footprint in your heart ,that was never forgotten.
    For me he was a mentor and friend. He helped me to achieve goals that were larger than I had imagined I could do. He always saw the potiential in you , even when you did not.
    It was when I had seperated from my husband that his true generosity came through and I knew I had made a friend . He offered his house for safety for myself and my daughter , he also made sure I had a bit of money to get my daughter a new dress to feel princess’y in .(she was only 6 at the time) .
    He loved all of you and was sure to share it with anyone and everyone.
    I will never forget all the words of wisdom he lent to me and that now I have been able to pay it forward to others.
    Anyone who crossed his path was very lucky and got to expirence a truly wonderful person.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I had the opportunity to work with him for 8 yrs and found Clark very generous in the knowledge that he had and the willingness on his part to share it with no questions asked. He also had a very sharp wit which him and I had some great battles and both had a good laugh about it. He was very upbeat and his postive attitude rubbed off on you. He will be missed

    What a fantastic man of generous selfless spirit and enormous personality in that quiet natural way. I loved his laugh….and his big hair….and his ability to be in each moment he was in. I am thankful to have met and known him. Safe travel to your next destination. I wish Liz, Kelly Rebecca and family can find comfort in knowing that others knew him as a great man too.

    Liz, My thoughts and prayers are with you, Kelly and Timmy. May your memories of fun times and happy events with Clark help your hearts to heal. He was a very generous man who was always willing to help. Over the years I remember him volunteering at events with you. I still giggle over the stories you’ve shared over the quantity of food he would prepare for potluck functions that you attended. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  15. Terry Gibson & Nora Kirkham (neighbours from Holly Point) :

    We just met Clark after he moved into Holly Park. His work on behalf of Holly Park and the neighbourhood will live on. The gardens have never been so pretty. All neighbours share the beauty that Clark tirelessly created, with the support of others.
    We too will miss his pleasant smile and wave as he drove on Meredith Road.
    It is always sad when one so young is taken from us. We will miss him and his contribution to our neighbourhood.
