DAVIS, Clark A., FAIA -- Passed away peacefully in San Rafael, on August 26, of complications from an infection while fighting a brain tumor. He is survived by his wife Ginette, of Mill Valley; and his sons John, of Anchorage, Alaska; and Paul, of San Francisco. Clark was 72 years old. Born in Denver, and raised in Montana and Washington State, Clark graduated from the University of Oregon, Eugene, and served in the US Army in France during the mid-1950s, where he met his wife. Clark moved to the Bay Area in 1956 and resided in San Francisco and Mill Valley throughout that time. He worked as an architect in San Francisco until his retirement 1994 and was a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects. He was a true San Franciscan in spirit and outlook and loved his adopted city deeply -- including its architecture, history, and natural beauty. An avowed Francophile, he enjoyed regular visits to France and savored the country's culture and beauty. In addition to architecture and French culture, his great passions included art, literature, travel, hiking, camping, and the beauty of nature. He was an open and tolerant person, who believed in the value of each individual. His progressive ideals were combined with timeless good manners and decorum. A memorial service will be held at 6 p.m., on Thursday evening, Aug. 30, at Daphne Fernwood Cemetery, 301 Tennessee Valley Road, Mill Valley. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Clark's memory to Marin Agricultural Land Trust, PO Box 809, Pt. Reyes Station, CA 94956, (www.malt.org).
