This pavilion was constructed in honor of the late Clark Deardorff, a true hero. One day in July 2017, Clark went to bed with strep throat. He woke 70 days later to learn that he had been in an induced coma from sepsis that caused the loss of his arms and legs. Undeterred, Clark remained positive and worked tirelessly to use his prosthetics and, within a year, was back out coaching for his son’s baseball team. Clark was a lifelong member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Lansdale, Penn., and is survived by his wife, Celeste; son, Ares; and daughter, Ava, who was born while Clark was in a coma. Clark’s father, Curt, said Clark was always a very positive person and wanted everyone to have a good time. One of his favorite things was to celebrate with family under a pavilion, and they were going to have a celebration under a tent in Clark’s honor. But when Denny, the church’s building and grounds manager, suggested a permanent pavilion instead of a temporary tent, Curt jumped at the idea. The quality-first approach of everyone involved in this project will ensure Clark’s legacy will live on indefinitely. This project used SmartBuild’s online builder and was submitted courtesy of SmartBuild’s Keith Dietzen.
