Aquatherm President Steve Clark dies

Steve and Susan Clark were killed in a motor vehicle accident near St. George, Utah, on May 24.

May 28, 2013

According to a report from Aquatherm, the company’s president, Steve Clark, P.E., P.Eng., 55, and his wife Susan, of Provo, Utah, were killed in a motor vehicle accident near St. George, Utah, early on the morning of May 24.

Clark was born Nov. 1, 1957, in Great Falls, Mont., to Maurice and Patricia Clark. After graduating from Montana State University with an engineering degree, he worked for several years as a professional engineer and eventually started his own engineering firm, but was always focused on building energy efficiency.

Aquatherm President Steve Clark died May 24, 2013. He was 55.

While working on a large project in the U.K., he discovered a German-made polypropylene pipe manufactured by Aquatherm. His experience (including award-winning building system designs and international HVAC and piping patents) had revealed that pipe selection is a key component to efficient building design, and he was able to acquire the North American distribution rights to the polypropylene pipe systems in 2007.

Clark went on to assemble a top-notch corporate team and distribution network that helped fuel the company’s steady and significant growth. In fact, Aquatherm was named to Forbes Magazine’s List of America’s Most Promising Companies the last two years, and the polypropylene pipe systems are increasingly being used in a huge variety of PHVAC systems and applications in commercial, government, industrial and residential projects.

In addition to day-to-day and big picture operations of the company, Clark worked tirelessly as an advocate for broader adoption of radiant heating and cooling and improved building efficiency in North America. He regularly published articles, spoke at industry events, served on industry committees, and promoted energy efficient pipe alternatives. He was active in industry associations, serving on the ASHRAE 189.1 Committee for High Performance Green Buildings, the Green Schoolhouse Series Advisory Board, and others. The Aquatherm team will be reorganizing and carrying on his outstanding work going forward.

He is survived by both of his parents, his brothers Mark, Dennis, Kim and Kevin, and sisters Mary Kelli and Trudi. as well as their children, Amber (David Chen), Adam (Genevieve Binkerd), Aaron, Austin (Chantelle Turley), Autumn and Anne, as well as their grandchildren Lynn and Lily Chen.

 

Funeral service and arrangements

Steve and Susan’s lives were examples of church and community service, and they touched many lives with their dedication, kindness and generosity.

 A funeral service for those wishing to honor and thank them will be held on June 1 at 2 p.m. at the Sharon East Stake Center in Provo, Utah. There will be a visitation for friends and family on May 31 from 6 to 8 p.m., at 650 East Stadium Ave., Provo.

There will be another brief viewing before the funeral service, starting at 11:30 a.m. on June 1. Arrangements are being handled by the Walker Sanderson Funeral Home.
