Ryker Patrick Clark, 17, of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina was tragically taken from us too early. He was born January 11, 2004 and is survived by, Parents Carolyn Hall Clark of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, and Patrick Clark of Melbourne, Florida.
Ryker had a huge heart, generous spirit, and tremendous sense of humor. He was a senior at First Flight High School where he had an abundance of friends that are more like extended family. He worked at McDonalds part time where he was recognized by customers and coworkers for his smile and warm nature. He commuted to work and school on his beloved moped that he was very proud of and well known for; practically being an extension of his personality. He was previously a Boy Scout of Troop #116, which he belonged to for numerous years. Ryker was also an avid video gamer, played Magic the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. He also loved music, played the drums, and was known to be the first one to break out dancing at a party.
Besides his parents, Ryker is survived by his grandparents, Emma and Riley Clark, Alvin Hall and wife Lauren, and Carol Campbell. He is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and too many friends to name individually. He will be greatly missed by family pets Negan, and Izzy.
