The Lake Howell Pop Warner family is asking for your support to assist Delaney and Gavin Clark, who tragically lost their father, Kevin, during the Fiamma work place shooting in Orlando on June 5, 2017. Delaney (14) was a cheerleader with LHPW for several years, having just graduated from the league this past season. Gavin (18) played football for LHPW for numerous seasons and recently graduated from Lyman High School. Kevin was a constant supporter of LHPW, where he could often be found snapping pictures on the sideline during game days. In addition to this tragic event, Gavin and Delaney lost their mother over nine years ago. Kevin Clark was a wonderful man and an absolutely amazing, supportive and loving father who will be missed by many. Please help us support this Hawk family in their time of need.

So much has changed in the last 36 days. We’ve lost an amazing friend, colleague and family member due to the acts of a senseless individual. We would like to take a minute to introduce everyone to Charlotte and Sean Williams. Mr. and Mrs. Williams have been close family friends to the Clark’s for numerous years; they have also been appointed as Gavin and Delaney’s legal guardians. We’ve had the pleasure of getting to know them over the past month and know the kids are in great hands. Thanks to the amazing generosity of our community we’ve raised enough money to help fund both Gavin and Delaney’s educational expenses for future years. Kevin never finished college and we know that his children’s education is extremely important to him.

Again, thank you all for your support.

It has been 26 days since Kevin was tragically taken from his family and friends. We want to take this opportunity to say thank you again. Thank you for the support, the prayers, the thoughts and kind wishes as his family and friend find their new normal. And thank you to all of the kind souls that have donated to the Kevin Clark Memorial Fund.

Kevin was always amazing at capturing the important moments with his camera. Remember to capture these moments with our hearts.

Today we celebrated the life of Kevin Clark with a beautiful ceremony hosted by Willow Creek church. It was amazing to see the love and support for this caring soul. Thank you to everyone for their continued support, thought and prayers!

Our orginal goal was to raise $10,000 to help with funeral expenses. With the overwhelming support of our great community, we are close to raising enough funds to cover college tuition for both Gavin and Delaney.

Thank you to our amazing community, family and friends!

My best friend... after a long days work and even when weeks may have passed.. we were always able to pick up where we left off... I could always count on a welcoming smile and greeted with open arms every time I rang that bell and the door would open... sit mama bear, let me fix you a drink and let's enjoy each other's company he would always say graciously... We would then SHARE stories on how the kids were doing and what was going on in each of their lives, laugh a lot, SHARE some more stories and LAUGH some more, and at that point I'd say we were laughing mostly at our own crazy selves... nobody ever was I looking forward to being proud of me more, than my papa bear... he was truly my inspiration... he never lost faith in me... ever, no matter how many stupid mistakes I made... PEAS and CARROTS is what we were... I was his Gürl... he was my guy. Plain and simple through it all, we understood each other... I miss my papa bear... I miss my only TRUE friend... my world here will never EVER be the same without him. that day... never came

And I haven't even read a fraction of these comments and contributions but I'm blown away at what a testament they are to who my brother was. I'm getting verbose I've been drinking in the hopes of being able to maybe sleep tonight . I've had a shitty couple of days. (understatement)And ironically the sun hasn't shined in Orlando since Kevin was killed . today we got to make the funeral and memorial arrangements those of you who've been there know what a pleasure that is. So I should stop and try to sleep but I'm so touched, I love you people who contributed and posted. I got through maybe 100 posts and I knew maybe two people and Kevin and I have been fairly close for 53 years , I'm blown away. You people have really eased my pain. In all my ramblings I haven't even mentioned the children that's probably because I've been thinking of nothing but them for the last two days. Kevin was an incredible father. He committed his entire being to those children and their well-being. And the proof is evident to all who know Gavin and Delaney they are truly incredible ,special ,tough ,courageous kids . Seven years ago they lost mom now they lost their rock. They Will never be whole again but between me and my wife and the incredible incredible support group out there, we are going to be good again with time. So once again my undying loves ,gratitude and humility for all your generosity please except my extreme thank you thank you. God bless you all

OK so I guess I should get with the program . I'm not too computer savvy. My sister, Kevin's twin set ,up a Facebook account for me about 10 years ago and I probably have 20 friends and post maybe twice a year. but I need to talk about my beautiful loving baby brother who was killed other day by some sick individual . I suppose one of the things I take solace in the fact that it wasn't some Islamic terrorist so I really don't have any hate in my heart for the perpetrator and because of my pain I have sympathy for everyone else who died . And we didn't have to watch him linger In hospital gowns and IV tubes like we watched both our parents ago, mom at 52 now Kevin at 53 but quickly and the pain didn't last too longintend for this post to be cathartic and maybe to add a personalized touch to this thread although Dania did a lovely job . While suffering from insomnia I just now sat down to read these posts . For a while now I've been watching people around me scrolling on their devices incredulously, so I'm taking a look. I'm experiencing such a range of emotions, you find your brothers been killed . your brother who never had an enemy , never met a stranger; you people posting on here who knew him know what I'm talking about. And you people who didn't know him I'm so so humbled and overwhelmed that people could be so generous and selfless . My first instinct is to try and write each and everyone of you individually and thank you for your thoughts and prayers and donations

I'm so lucky I had the chance to meet your dad he is a very special man! Pattie Lynch

Gavin and Delaney; there's nothing that we all can say to comfort you in this time. But we all trying to be there for you because your father was really a good man with good intentions. Whenever I saw him around; he would always talk about you.he knew nothing best than being a father. Just as it is hard for you to accept it,so is it hard for us to accept it as well so please understand we do feel your lost because we too have lost a friend but most importantly you Dad was a great man so, go make him proud and raise your head up to the sky and let him know that you going to make your mark on this world real loud so you can hear. We love you guys The Letangs.

Gavin and Delaney-you don't remember me but I remember you both. We spent an afternoon at the park in Altamonte with both your mom and dad. Had fun at Darla's pool with all of you. I knew your dad for many years and he holds a special place in my heart. I knew your mom for a short time but thought the world of her. You will remain in my prayers forever.

I was in band with Kevin’s wife, Kelly. From the comments I read it looks like there are many friends and family that love them and will help their children through this. So sorry this happened.

I'm so sorry. Kevin was friends with one of my friends on Facebook, and when she shared this story it moved me deeply. He sounds like a wonderful man. I am so sorry for your loss. May you be held in compassion, and find some peace and soothing in this painful time.
