Lifelong Juneau resident Cameron Hal Clark died July 1, 2009, on Mount McGinnis in Juneau. He was 16.
A funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. today, July 8, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 5100 Glacier Highway, near Western Auto.
Born Oct. 27, 1992, he enjoyed being outdoors and loved skiing. When the weather warmed up and he couldn't ski anymore, he could be found riding his bike, or on any nearby trampoline, hiking, camping or playing ultimate frisbee, his family said. Years ago, he participated in and won many trail and road races with the Southeast Road Runners.
He was preparing for a Chilkoot Trail hike with his scout troop and was very close to achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. Along with his active lifestyle, he made time to receive a number of scholastic achievements and awards.
"He will be greatly missed by all those he loved and who loved him," his family said. "His exuberance for life and his bright smile will always be remembered."
He is survived by his parents, Zane and Denise Clark; brother, Ky Clark; sister, Kiera Clark; grandparents, Hal and Marlene Clark, of Rigby, Idaho, Larry Arseneau, of Vancouver, Wash., and Mary Ann Arseneau, of Poulsbo, Wash.
In lieu of flowers, his family would appreciate a written thought or expression of a positive experience you have shared with Cameron, or a donation to Juneau Mountain Rescue, Inc., P.O. Box 21282, Juneau, AK 99802.
