Lee Edwin Clark, age 81, of Mountain View, Arkansas was embraced into the arms of Jesus on March 31, 2021, in Bismarck, Arkansas.

Lee was born on Aug. 20, 1939, in Augusta, Arkansas.

Husband, Father, Grandpa, Brother, Pastor, Friend. Those are a few titles that Lee held. He was loved, appreciated, and respected by all who knew him. From giving the best Pentecostal pats on the back to quoting scriptures and talking about his love for the Lord over a good cup of coffee, Lee was proud of his faith and served as a pastor for the Assemblies of God for many decades. He was married to the love of his life, Donna Delores Clark. He often smiled at her with a toothy grin that made her swoon, even after 62 years of marriage. He was a proud husband who boasted of his wife’s good, country cooking, and always enjoyed the meals that she prepared for him, especially if it involved pie! He was a loving father who loved to tell stories of his 3 sons, never hesitating to tell how many pieces of furniture they broke while roughhousing as young boys. He was a fun grandpa who took his grandkids fishing, always putting the worm on the hook for them so they didn’t have to touch it. He was the true patriarch of his family- leaving a legacy of faith and love for them to remember him by.

Survivors include his wife of 62 years, Donna Delores Clark (Duncan) of the home; Sons, Wendell and wife Pam Clark of Prescott Valley, Arizona, Tim and wife Dorothy Clark of Bismarck, Arkansas, and daughter-in-law Natalie Clark of Mountain Home, Arkansas; Grandchildren, Desiree Clark of Prescott Valley, Arizona, Kristen Grant of Bismarck, Arkansas, Trinity Ohms of Haskell, Arkansas, Cody and wife Valerie Clark of Mountain Home, Arkansas, Weston and wife Whitney Clark of Waxahachie, Texas, Kayla and husband Jerad Moffitt of Mountain Home, Arkansas, Jordan and wife Courtney Clark of Benton, Arkansas; 16 great-grandchildren; Brothers, Louie Clark, Gary Clark, Jerry Clark, Glen Clark, Jason Clark; Sisters, Maudie Weza, Barbara Dickerson, Sharon Rowe, Brenda Reynolds, Jacky Clark, and numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members, and friends.
