Obituary For Willie Clark

With humble respect, Sewell Mortuary in Grantville announces the transition of Willie Clark on Wednesday, February 16th, 2022.

The funeral service for Mr. Clark is Wednesday at 1 o'clock at Macedonia Baptist Church.

The visitation is Tuesday from 6 to 7 PM at Sewell Mortuary Chapel.

Deacon Willie Clark was born on April 10, 1934 to the late Owen and Minnie
Clark. He was born and raised in Grantville, GA. He was the oldest child of the
family. He was also educated and learned to farm in the same community.

Affectionately known as “Spoot” by his family and friends, he was well known
by lots of people. He transitioned peacefully early on the morning of February
16, 2022 after a short period of illness. He fought a good fight.

Deacon Clark was an active member of Macedonia Baptist Church, where he
joined at an early age. He was the oldest deacon in the church. He faithfully
served as Chairman of the Deacon Board for several years and worked in
other capacities throughout the years. He worshiped often at churches in the
surrounding areas. He enjoyed going to church until his health started to fail.

He worked for several different business in his life. His last profession was
truck driver where he became an owner/operator until his retirement. Not
ready to stay home he became a school bus driver until he was ready to hand
up his keys.

He was a true outdoorsman. He loved his truck, tractor, lawnmowers and
planting a garden. He always did something outside. His main craft was
making his famous Brunswick Stew and it was awesome. We are going to miss
it.

Deacon Clark lived a long happy life. He was a loving Husband, Father,
Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, Cousin and Friend. He had a large family, and he
was looked up to by all of them. He adored his grandchildren.

He leaves to
cherish his memory his wife of 30 years Dorothy Clark; children, Barbara Jean,
Willie David, Jack (Jackie), Bruce, Herman, Emily, Sylvia, Allison (Sam),
Christopher (Sonya), Chris (Cheryl), Rodney (Pam); sisters, Thelma, Ola Mae
(Ben), Rose Marie, Cora Lee, Annette, Mary Kate; brothers, Jerry and Patricia
Arnold; forty-eight grandchildren, ninety-three great grandchildren, forty-two
