OBITUARY

Cornelius C. Wilson

September 6, 1936July 29, 2020

Clark Wilson, age 83, of Wichita Falls, Texas, went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on July 29, 2020. He was born on September 6th in Comer, Georgia to Estee and Ida Pearl (Scoggins) Wilson. After a whirlwind courtship, Clark married the love of his life, Nancy Faye (Elam) in March of 1958. Nancy joined him in Newfoundland where he was stationed as an Airman. God has always been in the center of his marriage and careers. In addition, God provided them with three wonderful children. Clark proudly and honorably served his country in the Air Force from 1954 to 1974. Duties took him across the U.S. and overseas to Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Newfoundland, and Hawaii. Following his military career, Clark served as a Civil Servant at Sheppard AFB from 1974 to 1994. God blessed him with opportunities to go on several mission trips in Mexico and Venezuela. He served as a kindergarten Sunday School teacher, participated in a Puppet Ministry and delighted in packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. He has always had a heart for the young ones and greatly enjoyed making kids’ games to be used in Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. Clark is survived by wife Nancy, son Mike Wilson (and wife Millie), daughter Joy (and husband Roger Dail), and daughter Diann (and husband Gayle Goodman). Those remaining to cherish his memory include 6 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren, and 1 great-great granddaughter. Visitation will be held on Monday August 3rd from 6-8pm at Hampton Vaughan Crestview Funeral Home. A service to celebrate Clark’s life will be held Tuesday August 4th at 10am at the chapel at Hampton Vaughan officiated by son Pastor Mike Wilson and Pastor Bill Pursley.

Clark had such a big heart. Especially for children. He made the most unique games for the children and they loved them all, with Plinko being the favorite. His passion for Operation Christmas Child was evident year round aa he and his wife Nancy poured their heart into that ministry.
He will be missed . But anyone who.knew Clark knows he stands face to face now with God.

Clark was a treasure and was admired by so many people. He made every child in is Kindergarten Sunday School class at Lamar Baptist feel special by taking the time to eat lunch with them at their school. He also created elaborate games and fun events for his class. He made an impact on my girls, who are now young adults. Mrs. Nancy, we are praying for you and your family as you learn to navigate this life without him. ❤️
