Clark Matthew Peterson

December 15, 2014 ~ June 17, 2022 (age 7)


Clark was a bright-eyed-seven-year-old boy, whose presence could light up a room, survived by his mother Addi Murray and brother Calvin Murray. He was always surrounded by the love of a large and caring family. His grandfather David Murray "Boppa", his grandmother Terri Murray "Gwami", his uncle Gus Murray, aunt Naomi Murray and cousins; Gus Murray II, Angelo Murray, and Andre Murray, all held an important role in raising Clark. Clark enjoyed so many things in life. He loved riding his Polaris quad at the beloved "Mountain House". He loved to swim in the ocean, and the many rivers and creeks throughout California. He loved nature and animals. He adored his dog, cats, lizard and fish. He enjoyed the Monterey Bay Aquarium, seeing Elephant Seals in Año Nuevo, spending weekends at Six Flags and going on trips to different locations with his grandparents in their motor home. He adored San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge which he called his bridge. He loved to go on the ferry from Vallejo, or driving through the city excitedly perched at his window taking it all in. But, more than anything Clark adored his family. He loved being at one of three homes in Crockett, running around making his family laugh, seeking knowledge with incessant questions about the world and how it worked. Clark was very bright and imaginative. He could spend hours building or drawing and writing books about adventures shared with his character Cat X and his dog Gypsi. He had a great sense about his body and possessed great skill in anything physical from dancing to riding his bike up and down hills in Crockett. Clark was intense and passionate about everything he encountered. The world lost someone who could've made a great impact in our society; however, we are left with the impact he left us in his seven short years. He was loved by many, but the tragedy that ended his life has impacted so many more. The family hopes that the love of Clark will help unite our love for each other, while also bringing about awareness of domestic abuse, gun violence, and lacking mental health support in our community.
