Friends remember motorcycle victim Kendrick Clark

POYNER, TX (KLTV) - In the wake of Tuesday's horrendous motorcycle accident, friends of Kendrick Clark are remembering the loved one they lost in this tragedy. Kendrick's best friend says his world changed Tuesday.

"I can't put into words how I feel," said Bryson Brown. "I just lost the best friend I ever had ever since I was eleven."

Bryson Brown and Kendrick Clark grew up on the same street, played basketball throughout school and went fishing once a week. 

"We've had nothing but good memories," he said. "That I'm thankful for." 

What happened at this intersection, Bryson says has changed the rest of his life.

"You never expect for anything like this to happen to someone so young. He had his whole life ahead of him...we barely lived life," said Brown. 

In his 23 years, Kendrick became a father of three. "I don't think they'll ever know how good of a friend their dad was... how good of a man he was," said Brown.           

Kendrick served in the navy inspiring Bryson's younger brother to join. Most recently he was studying business administration at TJC, and was on his way home from taking finals when the collision happened. 

"If he passed we were going to do something in Tyler together to celebrate but I guess that will never happen," said Brown. 

Bryson's mother says Kendrick was like a son to her, and prays his spirit lives on through his children.

"Let them have an impact on somebody else through him and his memories...how he was," said Denice Eldridge. 

"His son looks just like him. Every time I see Sean I'm going to think of Kendrick... every time. I think that's the hardest," said Brown.

Friends say right now, funeral arrangements for Kendrick Clark are pending.
