Arron Ray Clark will be missed dearly but not forgotten. In his 20 years he has impacted the lives of many and is highly regarded amongst those who knew him. He was a man of confidence, determination, courage, sympathy, optimism, and humility.

On December 5th 2003 Arron was killed when a radio controlled bomb was detonated near his convoy while they were driving in Baghdad. Arron was a member of the U.S. Army assigned to the 440th Signal Battalion, 22nd Signal Brigade, V Corps based in Darmstadt, Germany.

He specialized in detection and decontamination of biological warfare agents. Arron and his convoy were amongst the first wave of soldiers deployed to Iraq.

As the only Chico California native to lose his life in the war in Iraq, local volunteers, family, and friends have united to raise funds in Arron’s memory in an attempt to create a monument in the city park of his hometown.
