Wayne Clark, business owner, entrepreneur, renaisance man, father of 5, grand father of 3, friend to many, and enemy to himself, died on Saturday. He fell to his death at the Grotto. I had the had the good fortune for working for him and the misfortune for working for him. Wayne was a madman and a very good person. He treated his employees as equals and never once raised his voice in anger to any of them. He was the most charismatic man I have ever known. I know this sound like I am simply trying to remember the good and forget the bad. There is probably some truth to that. However what made Wayne Clark a great leader, and superb thinker, and man of action, also set him on a course for potential ruin. The candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long. He was addicted to meth and that addiction, destroyed his business, and took his life. Wayne had just turned 45 this month.
Wayne will be missed.
