Nathan Clarke, age 32, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family on January 29, 2018. Nathan was born and raised in Appleton, Wisconsin, graduating from Appleton East High School in 2003, and Dartmouth College in 2007 with majors in philosophy and physics. He worked as a financial analyst in New York and London. Two years ago, following a diagnosis of a rare abdominal cancer, Nathan returned to Appleton to be with his family. Nathan enjoyed being outdoors and appreciated the intricate beauty of nature. He took great joy in documenting his local and global experiences through his love of photography. The character that Nathan strengthened throughout his life was one of determination and quiet thoughtfulness. Those who have met Nate not only know his wit and keen mind, but will always remember an overwhelming sense of his kindness. Even as cancer demanded so much from him, Nathan inspired others with a spirit of curiosity, optimism, and generosity. He is survived and loved by his parents Allan and Ann Clarke, siblings Sarah Clarke, Marie (Daniel) Adams, Matthew (Melanie) Clarke, Bethany (Caleb) Leedy, nephews, Abiatar, Allan, and Apolo, and grandparents Edward and Vivian Clarke. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Joseph and Joyce Depies. As a son, brother, uncle, grandson, and friend, Nathan will be dearly missed. The memorial service for Nathan will be held at 2:00 PM on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at PRINCE OF PEACE LUTHERAN CHURCH (2330 E. Calumet St., Appleton). Visitation will be held from 11:00 AM until the time of service.
