Clinton (Clint) Rudolph Gardner was born March 2, 1935 to the late Alton and Ocie Gardner in Montalba, Texas. Clint accepted Christ at an early age where he united with Providence Baptist Church. Moving to Fort Worth and making it his home, Clint met the love of his life Martha Helen Smith. Clint and Martha were united in holy matrimony on October 2, 1959. They remained a loving couple for over 60 years. He was a devoted family man, hard worker and had a silent but strong presence. He retired from Texas Steel after 25 years of service. After a long illness with heart disease, the Lord summoned Clint from his earthly home to his heavenly home on June 16, 2020. He is preceded in death by his parents, his two sisters, Elsie Swanson and Edna Mae Gardner, his brother Bill Jackson and his nephew Lester Webb that he raised as his own. Those left to cherish his memory are: his wife, Martha Gardner; his daughter, Karen Turner(Elbert); his brother, Artis Ray Gardner (Bobbie); his four sisters, Ollie Ruth Nolley (Tommy), Verdie Johnson, Valley Lee Jones (Jimmy) and Vertie Harrison (Leon); 7 grand children, Duane Turner, Tiffany Robinson (Keon), Montrel Harris, Clintrell Webb, Damonica Webb, Tynia Webb and Sandra Webb; 3 great grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews.

Dear Mrs. Gardner, Karen, and the entire Gardner Family, My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you as you grieve the passing of Mr. Gardner he will be missed. After 47 years of being neighbors seeing him working on his truck or walking around the block, always having a smile, a wave or "hey." Just won't be the same without him. Praying God will bless you with his divine understanding, his divine comfort and divine peace knowing we will all meet again.
