Phillip Clark

May 30, 1937 ~ August 29, 2022 (age 85)


Phillip Augusta Clark was called to eternal rest, Monday, August 29,2022, at his residence surrounded by his loving family and friends. Words cannot express our sadness, but we are comforted in knowing that Phil has made it home and is resting in the Arms of Our Lord and Savior. “Phil”, as he was fondly known, was kind, courageous, compassionate, and most of all loved his family and had an abiding faith. He was born May 30,1937, in Stanly County, North Carolina, to the parentage of Horace and Laura Smith Clark. Phil is gone from our home but lives forever in our hearts. His memory will forever be a part of us. Our love is eternal.

Phil was educated in the Stanly County public schools, was  employed and retired from E.J. Snyder Company, Albemarle, North Carolina.

He and his family were faithful members of Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church, Albemarle. Phil enjoyed many spirited services until declining health did not permit his active participation. In his leisure, Phil enjoyed playing card games and spending time with family especially during the holidays and other family gatherings. He was an avid sports enthusiast who loved cheering for his favorite Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Braves.

He has reunited with his parents; daughter, Sonya H. Clark; siblings: Hattie Crump, Laura Wall, Jessie Clark, Slay Junior Craig, Paul Kendall, and Joe Clark, in a place where every day is like Sunday, and the problems of the world are no more.

Phil and his wife, the former Sarah Kendall, celebrated fifty-five years of marriage and were devoted parents to their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

Phil’s journey, a life well-lived, has come to a close. He will be remembered and treasured by his devoted wife, Sarah K. Clark; daughter, Jorita L.Clark; sons: Kenneth (Kimberly) Clark, Kelvin (Caroline) Clark, and Kerry Clark (Alfreshia Carpenter); ten grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; sister, Ollie Clark; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
