Rest in solidarity, Brother Clark.
Dave Clark, 1973 to 2023.
UCTE National President, 2017 to 2023.
With very heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our national president, brother, and friend, Dave Clark, who died suddenly on Thursday, May 18, 2023.
Brother Clark was elected National President of the Union of Canadian Transportation Employees at its 2017 Convention. Dave served in several union positions in different unions throughout his working life, such as shop steward and local president. In 2011, he became the UCTE Regional Vice-President Pacific Region, a position he held until 2017. He was also the first National President elected from the private sector, of which he was very proud.
Having worked for Transport Canada, various airlines, and finally, the Vancouver International Airport Authority, Dave understood many of the issues faced by our members, whether they found themselves in trades, safety and security, or administration.
What was important to Dave was that the union stay connected with its membership. “Working with the members at the ground level, I realized there were changes that needed to happen within the labour movement to remain current and relevant.” As a result, Brother Clark brought about different ways for UCTE to engage with its members who were not usually involved.
His family was the only thing more important to him than the labour movement. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dave’s wife, children, parents, and siblings that he loved dearly.
Rest in solidarity, Brother Clark.
We finally got the report from the coroner..
He died from a ruptured aorta of the heart.. The blood went around the heart and the heart couldn't beat..
He died a sudden death......
So very sorry to read of the loss of your precious son
Got zol zeyn mit dir.
THIS IS THE CORONER'S PRIMARY REPORT..
As I mentioned in my previous email, I have received the preliminary results of Mr. Clark's autopsy from the forensic pathologist. Autopsy showed an aortic dissection, which is a tear in the body's main artery for blood circulation (the aorta). The dissection spread up to the level of the heart causing a collection of blood around the heart. This put pressure on the heart muscle and prevented it from functioning properly. Based on these findings, we think Mr. Clark died rather suddenly when the collection of blood formed around his heart.
