Andrew Quinn Clarke passed away unexpectedly on March 26, 2023, at the age of 30. Born on May 4, 1992 in Columbus, Ohio to Quinn and Katherine Clarke, Andrew was a friend to all and had a smile that would light up any room.
Andrew grew up playing baseball and football. He enjoyed family vacations at the beach and the mountains. Andrew attended St. Brendan School in Hilliard, Ohio and was a member of the Parish. He graduated from Bishop Ready High School in 2010, where he played baseball and was on the wrestling team. Andrew graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from Ohio University.
Andrew’s professional career began at Kimball Midwest in 2018 where he was recruited as an Outside Sales Rep. He was the first hire in the company’s new account rep program and his talents were quickly recognized. In addition to his customer account responsibilities, Andrew was asked to serve as a Division Trainer for new sales reps and was recently promoted to Key Account Executive in 2022, where he was asked to lead a team of field reps and sales managers. He was driven, passionate, and a leader amongst his peers, showcasing a unique ability to connect with the customer. Andrew was always the first to accept a new challenge and built solid customer relationships throughout his career. One of his managers said it best, “Andrew’s best is yet to come!”
While Andrew was extremely dedicated to his work, his devotion to his family, friends and loving girlfriend, Maggie Nace, was immeasurable. He was a loyal, kind and thoughtful friend to many and will be missed immensely. Andrew was a huge Ohio State fan and loved his Duke Blue Devils.
Andrew is preceded in death by his grandparents, William Cornelius and Joe and Betty Clarke. He is survived by his loving parents, Quinn and Katherine Clarke, brothers Kristopher and Thomas, his grandmother, Karen Cornelius, Uncle Bill, and aunts Caroline and Marsha.
