CVCC member Lloyd W. Clarke, 43, Hagerstown, MD, died Thursday, Sept. 20, 2007, in Incline Village, NV, when an oncoming motorist turned left into the path of his bicycle.  

Born Friday, Feb. 14, 1964, in Belize City, Belize, Central America, he was the son of L. Wilber Clarke and Dulceta A. Burrowes Clarke.

He was a 1982 graduate of Westbury High School in Westbury, N.Y., and a 1986 graduate from RPI in Troy, N.Y., and later graduated in 1992 from the University of Pennsylvania with a Ph.D. in systems engineering.

He was employed as a professor at Georgia Tech until 1999, and later with Schneider National (The Big Orange). He was currently employed with ILOG, based in France.

Lloyd was an avid cyclist and photographer, but most of all a loving and devoted husband, father and son.

He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Dr. Sherol Lorraine Clarke and daughter, Elta R. Clarke. 

The Clarke family regularly attended Wednesday night social rides, and Lloyd frequently attended other club rides.  He was also a regular on the morning rides from Port City Java in Hagerstown.  CVCC and all his cycling friends will miss his ready laugh and quiet personality.  He is the first club member to die while doing what we love to do.  We hope he will be the last.
