Owen Stevens Clark passed away quietly in the loving arms of his parents on October\n15th, 2023. In his 16 years, Owen lived life to its absolute fullest. He always looked for\nadventure, was energized by a challenge, and loved to make everyone around him smile. Owen\nis survived by his devoted parents Reuben and Sara Clark, his brother Sean, two sisters Ella\nand Quinn, grandparents, 32 cousins, and 22 aunts and uncles. Crammed into the middle of\nthis large loving family Owen stood out and created his own part in this world\n\nMany people knew Owen for his intense passion for mountain biking. He lived to be\nriding but also found satisfaction just working in the garage on bikes. He spent most of his time\nbuilding jumps or riding his favorite trails with friends and the Oak Ridge High School Mountain\nBiking team. He biked everywhere and always looked forward to spending time at a\nsummertime ski resort barreling down a mountain on his bike. But wherever it was, the common\ndenominator seemed to be being airborne. He preferred being upside down from the time he\nwas two. He seemed to have a need to always be flipping or flying through the air. Whether on a\nbike, trampoline, bridge or cliff, Owen found a way to catch air from any surface. Owen loved\nthose things, but enjoyed helping his friends nail the same stunts more. He may have been the\nfirst and the last one to jump off of the bridge but he was also encouraging and spotting his\nfriends along the way.\n\nOwen was an independent force. He was absolutely fearless and had incredible\nconfidence. Not only did this make his fun infectious, but he loved nothing more than to bring\npeople along for the ride. Owen was a creator, an artist and a lover of music. He had only one\nmode and that was go go go. He was a hard worker, a devourer by knowledge and was always\nenthusiastically sharing things he learned with others.\n\nEven though those were the larger than life parts of what we all saw in Owen, those\nwere not anywhere near his best qualities. He was thoughtful and spiritual and above all, loved\nhis family and friends. Owen was a loyal and caring son, brother, cousin, nephew, and friend.\nMore than anything, he pushed people to be better and encouraged those around him to see\nthe brighter side. He never thought he was too cool or and despised that attitude. He was a\nfriend to all and lifted those around him instead of tearing people down. He saw the real\npotential in his friends and would do whatever he could to help them reach it. Often that meant\npushing them to do things they didn’t think they were even capable. What Owen wanted most\nwas to be a friend to everyone around him: be it classmate, teammate, siblings, or parent or\ncousin. Owen was so loved and is already missed by so many.\n\nPlease join family and friends for a memorial in his honor at 11 am on Saturday, October\n28, 2023 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Sacramento Temple Hill, 2100\nCalifornia Cir, Rancho Cordova CA 95742.
