Dana was a man with a sharp technical mind and believed in hard work and good character.  A graduate of Burrell High School, Class of 1973 and Gateway Technical Institute, Class of 1975, where he received his degree in Drafting and Design, he worked at Hyde Park Foundry for many years before finishing his career as a technologist at ALCOA/Arconic in Upper Burrell. Dana loved fly fishing and hunting, and his passion for fly fishing led him to own two fly fishing shops. He cherished every moment spent with his beloved grandchildren, whom he was always devoted to teaching new things and ways of thinking. Dana was very social and an active and vital member and Past Master of Tyrian Lodge No. 644, Free and Accepted Masons of New Kensington, served as an Elder and member of Pine Run Presbyterian Church of Markle, and was a member of the North-South Skirmish Association, Local District 12th PA.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his older brother in infancy, Gregory Scott Clark.
