FLORENCE – Born in Edmondton Alberta, Canada, to Bob and Ruth Clark, he spent many years traveling the world never meeting a stranger or hesitating to lend a helping hand.
He spent most of his adult life in Fort Worth, Texas. 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, Montana, 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 last 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; 8 great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews and other’s kids that considered him “Dad”.
