Obituary


Kenyon Rukeba Clark, Sr., passed away on April 14, 2022 at age 49. He was born
November 13, 1972 to Willie and Lillie Clark in Modesto, CA. He attended Franklin Elementary,
Mark Twain Jr High, Modesto and Davis High Schools, and eventually tested for his diploma to
graduate early. He was an honor student, who enjoyed playing a variety of sports including
running track, basketball and football. He continued his education at Sonoma State University
and Arizona State University. He was baptized at Second Baptist Church at an early age. He
loved the Word of God, and was a true believer in Christ. In adulthood he became an ordained
minister.
Kenyon was very intelligent, funny, charming, friendly, and charismatic. People felt
comfortable around him and instantly liked him, which made him rather popular. As a teenager
he had a passion for music, which led to a career in entertainment, and Hitlab Music Production
began. He also co-owned and operated Crimson Rhino Entertainment. Over the years he held
various positions of employment including bartender, security guard, VIP host and event
promoter at Copper Rhino, as well as other positions that allowed him to put his myriad of skills
and talent to use.
Kenyon was a family man. He met the love of his life, Tiffany Clark, the first time in
Modesto at the young age of 14, she was 12, even though he got on her nerves, they found
themselves crossing paths again at ages 18 and 16, and they became good friends. However, life
changes set them temporarily on different paths, but third times a charm fate brought them
back together in 2002. They began dating, and fell in love. The two blended their families
together in 2003. He is a father of seven, and enjoyed every moment spent with his children. A
devoted father that emphasized the importance of morals, values and education to his kids. He
would host family holidays. He was an amazing chef who loved cooking, especially for his family,
and was known for his great barbecue skills. He loved hard, and took great pride in being a son,
brother, parent, husband, cousin, nephew, friend and supporter to those he loved.
Kenyon, also known as Kato-Giavonni Arceneaux, Kenny, Mickey, the Mayor of
Downtown or sometimes Picklefoot McGillacudi was a huge Raiders and Lakers Fan. He loved
to sing, dance, joke around, and do karaoke. He loved Mickey Mouse almost as much as he loved
being a Clamper. Sponsored by Michael (Navy) Richardson and Griff (GPA) Dye, he joined the
Clampers ECV in October of 2008, in La Grange at the Dredge Camp and became a member of
Estanislao Chapter 58. That is where Kenny made his second family as Mickey, which he loved
and cherished deeply. Over the next 14 years he would join numerous chapters throughout
California, Nevada and Washington.
Kenyon and Tiffany had what they called “Sunday Funday” where they would have family
and friends over for great food, strong drinks and good laughs. He was also one of the funniest
Facebook posters, which constantly landed him up in Facebook jail. He liked wearing bow ties
and Kangol hats showing off his unique style. He was also a great dancer. When he danced with
Tiff, the chemistry they shared was undeniable.
Kenyon was preceded in death by his father Willie Clark, godfather Amos Smith,
maternal grandmother Ruth Hollie and paternal grandmother Johnnie Lowery. He is survived
by his mother Lille Clark, sister Keisha Renee Clark, wife Tiffany Clark, sons Kenyon Rukeba
Clark Jr (Mookie), Mark Clark, and Jacqui Clark; daughters Marissa Robinson, Dejia
