Clark was born in Morgan, Texas, on May 22, 1921. He left this earth to be with the Lord on April 25, 2009, at the St. John’s Living Center in Jackson.
On the day of his discharge from the U.S. Army Sept. 16, 1941, he met his future wife Ruth. They were married Jan. 12, 1942. Clark was an auto body repairman and painter. He was an avid hunter and loved the days he spent fishing in Alaska. Clark loved flying and earned his pilot’s license while he lived in Pinedale. Ask any of his grandchildren though, and they would tell you that his greatest joy in life was to tease them.
Clark and Ruth spent most of their married life in Wyoming and Alaska. They were charter members of the very first Southern Baptist Church in the state of Wyoming in Casper. Together they also helped to establish 12 more churches and many bible studies in Montana and Wyoming. Clark became an ordained deacon and then later an ordained Baptist pastor.
Clark is survived by his wife Ruth of Jackson; one brother Wendell Dyess of Cleburne, Texas; three children William Clark, Jr., and wife Shelby of Pinedale; Dianna Maupin and husband Lanny of Queen’s Creek, Ariz.; and Wayne and wife Arlene of Jackson; as well as grandchildren, great-grandchildren and a great-great-grandchild.
He is preceded in death by his parents William Lee and Addie May Dyess, brother JT, sister Ruth and his grandson Chris.
Funeral services will be held Saturday May 2 at 10:30 a.m. at Covill Funeral Home in Pinedale. Viewing will be from 9 to 10 a.m. prior to the service. Interment will follow the services in the Pinedale Cemetery.
