FLORENCE — 1/16/45-11/28/2017

Many remember him as Officer Clark, Badge #9, Haltom City Police Department. He spent his off-duty time as a flight instructor and private pilot. Jim and Cissy relocated to Florence, spending his retirement years near his childhood home of Missoula, where he loved to spend his days, fishing in the river or hunting in the mountains.
His final flight plan was completed Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017, leaving behind his beloved wife, best friend and soul mate, Cissy Clark, sister, Bobi Clark-Anderson, brother, Carl Clark, Sr. and sister, Annell Clark-Walech, son Cody Clark/Tanya, four grandchildren, daughters Cristal Clark-Anthony/David, three grandchildren, Amy Welch-McLean/Toby six grandchildren, Sarah Welch-Kiefer/Elvis two grandchildren and Lauri Godkin three children, eight great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews and other’s kids who considered him “Dad”.
