Brady W. Clarke

Beginning in January of 2017 Mr. Clarke accepted the newly created position of Business Manager of Plum Creek Cemetery. Originally from Virginia, Brady has lived in the Pittsburgh area since 2000. A graduate of West Virginia University in 1995 with a B.A. in Political Science, Brady continued his education at Rutgers University in 1999, studying agronomic management.

Brady has a wealth of experience at managing and maintaining large scale outdoor properties having worked in the private country club industry for 19 years. These experiences should prove invaluable as the cemetery looks to move forward with a renewed focus on an exceptional appearance and the tender caring of the burial grounds.

Brady will also be working towards the realization of digitizing the historical record of all deceased and future clients of the cemetery. Once the information has been scanned and digitized it will be accessible via a search engine on the cemeteries website.

Brady lives in Blackridge very close to Beulah Presbyterian Church with his wife Emily, daughter Josephine, and loyal border collie Jake.
