Mr. Clark retired in 1990 from Copeland Corporation as Human Resource Director after working his way up from a drill press operator. Dee served on the Shelby County Mental Health Board and was a member of Gideon's International.
Dee was born again on October 14, 1962 into the Kingdom of God and became a participating member of The First Church of God. He served on the board of trustees, church council, taught Sunday School and served as Sunday School Superintendent and on building committees. He also served alongside his son, David, as deacon of the church men's group from 2008 - 2010. Dee worked tirelessly helping on the building of the church until his health did not permit him to do so.
After retiring from Copeland Corporation he and his wife, Beatrice, made four trips to Argentina, South America to help build church buildings, which fulfilled a lifelong dream. Dee loved to travel, especially with the church. He and Beatrice went to Germany for a Church World Conference and visited Austria, Switzerland, France and England. In 1995 they traveled to Sydney, Australia for another Church World Conference and were able to visit Auckland, New Zealand while on that trip. They always attended campmeetings in Anderson, Indiana and Springfield, Ohio.
Dee and Beatrice spent their winters in North Ft. Myers, Florida since 1999. Dee enjoyed life and loved his family more they will ever know. He will be sadly missed by all of us.
