Clark Edward Chapman, age 97, passed peacefully on Friday, March 13, 2020.

He is survived by sister Emily Wick; Frances, his wife of 57 years; son and daughter-in-law, Clark Benjamin Chapman and Amy Mercer Chapman of Shallotte, NC and their children Colton, Olivia, and Sadie; daughter and son-in-law, Jannette and Len Testa of Boone, NC and their four children Pete, Stephen, Mark, and Michelle; plus eleven great-grandchildren.

Mr. Chapman served as Seaman First Class in the U.S. Navy during WWII. Clark earned his B.S. in Business Administration from Youngstown State University in 1949. He worked in bookkeeping and accounting at Republic Steel (LTV) in Youngstown, Ohio until retiring during the late seventies. Clark also worked at the Easter Seals Center in Youngstown following the closures of the steel mills.

Clark was a dedicated member of the Disciples of Christ Church in Girard, Ohio for most of his life. He was also a Master Mason and 70+ year member of the William Farr Masonic Lodge.

Mr. Chapman has been living independently with his wife in Brunswick County, NC, and has spent much of the last 27 years either enjoying the company of his grandchildren, painting his house, sunning in a chair on the driveway, or collecting golf balls from the ponds around the golf course. He will be missed for his quiet, unassuming nature, kind heart, and dutiful service to God and country.

A private memorial service will be held July 3, 2020. Expressions of sympathy may be offered to the family at www.whitefuneralservicesupply.com

Jann and Ben
Your dad was always the nicest person in the room. He was calm when eveyone else was loud, he was deliberate when everyone else was jumping to conclusions. And he always smiled.
My earliest memories of Uncle Clark are when he and Aunt Fran first were dating. His effect on her was incrdible! She was smiling and laughing -- happy and adoring; she had found her soulmate. Her life became organized and purposeful.
They were both ecstatic when Ben was born. I remember that all were surprised becaue your folks were older. Needless to say, your folks immediately adapted to parenthood and did a wonderful job raising you, Ben, and building a solid family structure. Your dad always supported Aunt Fran efforts to keep her family ties including Sundays at the farm, which could not have always been easy. And they both spoke proudly of Jan and her accomplishments and family. You both have every reason to be proud of your father. We are proud to have shared time with Uncle Clark. Love Chet and Mara

I'm sorry for your loss, Ben and family. He had a long and fruitful life and now he is with his Lord and Savior. I'm certain that you are proud to be his son.

God bless and be with you all.
