Patrick Buffin Clarke, 32, of Russell, passed away October 6, 2020 in Saint Mary’s Medical Center in Huntington, WV.
He was born January 27, 1988 to William Buffin and Gale Ball Clarke at Cabell Huntington Hospital.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, James (Martha) Clarke and Raymond (Bessie) Ball, as well as his beloved pets Mac and Silver.
Pat was a collections officer for First and People’s Bank. With an outgoing, loveable personality he was a big kid at heart. He loved helping our community’s youth, and enjoyed coaching the freshman basketball team at Russell High School for several years. When away from work, Pat lived a very active lifestyle, keeping up with his fitness and playing a variety of sports with his friends, and sometimes just lounging around watching a movie. He loved being out on the water fishing, with some of his best memories being trips with Grandpa Clarke.
Keeping true to his generous heart, Patrick was an organ donor where he was able to give the gift of life to many others.
In addition to his loving parents, he is survived by his brother, James (Taylor) Clarke; one nephew, Rhodes Clarke; four aunts and uncles, Gary Clarke, Barb (Sam) Davis, Geraldine Wysong and Larry Ball, and pet Cleo.
