Nick Clar

Thank you so much for your donation to support the Sierra Club in honor of Nick Clar. While the present circumstances make it difficult to get together for his funeral, we plan to have a Celebration of Life reunion in Wisconsin as soon as we are able.

Nicholas Ventura Clar, 36, passed away in Brooklyn, New York, on Monday March 16, 2020. He was born in Watertown, Wisconsin, on September 25, 1983 to Dr. Alberto and Rosemary Clar. He attended St. Henry’s School and graduated from Watertown High School in 2001. He studied Psychology at Loyola University in Chicago, IL and then received his Masters degree in Publishing from Pace University. Nick worked in the advertising industry in New York City.

He was an amazing person, dependable, kind and cheerful. Nick loved to travel and be outdoors. He was an avid runner and ran several races including the Chicago, New York and Los Angeles Marathons. Nick was also a beloved Uncle to his nieces, Miu Clar and Maya Poquette, and his nephew Evan Poquette. He is survived by three siblings Alex Clar (married to Elsa Hui, Detroit), Annabel Clar Poquette (married to Dave Poquette with Maya and Evan Poquette, Chicago), and James Clar (married to Kanae Clar with Miu Clar, Tokyo).

With this we think of Nick hiking, with you Dr Clar, with Alex, James, Belle, any of your family he could encourage to join... in NY, in the Philippines, in Portland, in HI... where ever you were together and there were hills. And with a smile on his face. May you all feel his sweet soul with you as you walk, hike and sit in nature.

I will always remember my cousin Nick as one of the sunniest, kindest, funniest souls I have ever had the honor of knowing. He was so much fun to be around and always made me laugh. The last time we saw him was at our wedding, where he was a sponsor, and Jason and I were both so looking forward to spending more time with him in the future. I miss you, cousin.

I'm still in shock about the news and deeply, deeply saddened. Nick was always such a joy to be around; quick to smile, laugh, joke. I have so many memories of us growing up: visiting us in England, family reunions in Portland, the lake house in Wisconsin, weddings, hanging out in Brooklyn... I'm so glad we got to spend more time together in recent years, something I thought would continue for decades to come. I will miss him immensely.

Nick - You were my main man - my bestie in NY. Im going through our old photos, emails, messages and memories are flooding back. In between tears - I am laughing so hard re-living everything again cause you brought so much joy in my life. From our exchange to revision, to dancing at B.O.Bs, to letting me stay with you during hurricane sandy, to listening to usher at IMS, to always brunching and our BFF quality time dinner, to OKC/Bulls, to being your +1, and to everything else in between. Thanks for being such a wonderful friend who turned into family for me. I will miss your smiling face and your kind loving soul. I love you my friend -- <3 your Freedz
