His passing in Olathe, Kansas, following a brief illness, has left a profound void in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing and loving him.

Born on February 14, 1974, in Coffeyville, Kansas to Michael "Mike" and Mabel (Rush) Clark. Doug's journey through life was marked by a deep commitment to personal and professional growth. Educated in his hometown, he graduated from Field Kindley Memorial High School before embarking on a path that he acquire an associate's degree from Coffeyville Community College.

In his professional life, Douglas lent his skills and expertise to Ashgrove Cement's corporate office before transitioning to various other places of employment that enriched his understanding of the world around him. 

Beyond his professional endeavors, Doug was a man of profound kindness and compassion. For a decade, he lovingly cared for his wife, Melinda Hill, following her battle with a brain aneurysm until her passing on August 26, 2023. Their son Cody held a special place in Doug's heart, embodying the love and devotion that defined his existence.

His love for the outdoors manifested in fishing expeditions, hiking adventures, river floats, and mushroom hunts in search of morels. A culinary maestro in his own right, he delighted in creating culinary delights while passionately supporting both the KC Chiefs and KC Royals.
