Keith Alexander Clarke, age 70, of McKinney, Texas, passed away on May 21, 2019. He was born on February 17, 1949 in London, England to Reginald Clarke and Joyce (Simpson) Clarke.
Keith enjoyed a long and distinguished career with Texas Instruments. His first job with T.I. was in Bedford, England where he met the love of his life Anne Baker.
Keith married Anne on June 15, 1975 in Bedford, England. His 40 plus years with T.I. took he and his family many places around the world with stops in Holland, France and Italy before landing in North Texas. He absolutely loved his job and the many wonderful friends and experiences of living abroad. Keith was always very giving and generous, even when he had to give up his “001” T.I. calculator-the very first T.I. calculator produced, to be given to the Mayor of Bedford.
He passionately followed American politics as a hobby and he was very much on the “Trump Train” as an ardent supporter of President Trump.
He loved and cherished his wife and girls and was especially enamored with his grandchildren.
Keith is survived by his daughter, Natalie Moon and husband Matt of Richardson, Texas; daughter, Sophie Clark and David Stevenson of McKinney, Texas; grandson, Benjamin Moon and another grandson on the way; granddaughters, Lillian Clarke and Ava Stevenson; brother, Steven Clarke of Winsdor, England; aunt, Irene Simpson of Ramsgate, England; plus many friends, extended family and coworkers.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Reg and Joyce Clarke and wife, Anne.
