He was a lifelong member of the National Rifle Association and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. After graduating high school he worked for H&P Drilling and Unit Drilling. At the time of his passing he was working for SST Drilling as an assistant driller. He was one hell of a Roughneck.
His family said that he loved hunting, fishing, and being outdoors. He adored his nieces and nephews and spending time with them anywhere he could especially while sharing his passion for hunting, fishing and the outdoors. His family always took priority in his life. His two Pit Bull dogs, Krystal and Pendleton, were his four legged children. They were always by his side wherever he went. Tanner was always willing to help anyone, he would give the shirt off his back or give his last dollar away to help those in need. Family and friends meant everything to him! He cherished every moment spent up in the mountains he was a true Country Boy. Tanner had one last GREAT hunt with his fiancé; a once in a lifetime non-typical antelope, just a week before passing.
He is survived by his parents, Robert Clark, and Bernice and Louis Newton; his fiancé, Kourtney Snyder and her parents, Dale Snyder and Karla Borders; his four legged children, Krystal and Pendleton; his siblings, Bethany Clark (John), Joshua Clark (Amber), Zeb Clark (Sadie), Gene Newton, Tyler Newton, sister in-law, Jenny Clark, and brother in-law, Zach Snyder; his grandparents, Joan Clark and Milton and Jerry Clark; his nieces and nephews, Brooklyn, Shane, Andrea, Jamie, Harlie, Tucker, Jacob, Tandy, Lilah, Elizabeth, Quinton, Emberly, Hallie, Owen, and Landon; and numerous aunts and uncles and cousins.
