of Marshall, AR
April 23, 1965 - September 21, 2020
Phillip Carl Clark, age 55 of Marshall, Arkansas passed from this life on Monday, September 21st, 2020 at Cox Medical Center South in Springfield, Missouri. He was born in Batesville, Arkansas on April 23rd, 1965 to Lee Clark and Delores Duncan Clark. Phillip wore many hats: Husband, Father, Pop Pop, Son, Brother, Pastor, Chef, Coach, Singer, Razorback Fan, and Friend. His joy was contagious and genuine, and everyone knew that he loved Jesus more than anything. He often gushed over the beauty of his bride, Natalie, and their favorite memories include family outings to Silver Dollar City, singing together, going on cruises, going to yard sales, watching their kids play sports, and being grandparents. His greatest joy in life came from his kids and grandkids, and everyone knew how proud he was of them. He was a very well-loved, selfless Pastor at Marshall Assembly of God for 24 years, where he regularly planned Missions Trips, Fish Fries, Chili Cook Offs, Fall Festivals, Christmas Plays, and other numerous events for his church family and community. He was always good for a joke, coming up with a nickname, or making up a funny song. He learned how to cook from his Momma and how to preach from his Dad. He left a legacy that we should all strive for, and we have comfort in knowing that he is safe in the arms of Jesus. Survivors include his wife of 34 years, Natalie Schultz Clark of the home; son, Cody Clark and wife Valerie of Mountain Home; daughter, Kayla Moffitt and husband Jerad of Gassville; grandchildren, Camden and Alivia Clark of Mountain Home; his parents, Lee and Delores Clark of Mountain View; brothers, Wendell Clark and wife Pam of Prescott Valley, Arizona and Timothy Clark and wife Dorothy of Bismarck; mother-in-law, Ruthie Martin; father-in-law, Don Schultz and wife Frances; sister-in-law, Anita Martin; brother-in-law, Robert and wife Stacey Barnhart; and numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members, friends, and his MAG Church family. Phillip is preceded in death by his father-in-law, Howard Martin; brother-in-law, Troy Schultz; brother-in-law, Richard Barnhart; and sister-in-law, Tammy Martin.

We are sorry for your loss. I met Brother Clark a few times and know he will be missed by all. He seemed like a really nice person. Prayers for all your family.
Dear Natalie and Family -- So very very sorry for your loss of Phillip. Sounds like he was quiet a guy and dedicated father, grandfather and husband. I have met Phllip years ago at Adams-Clark family events but those were years ago. My mother, Jessie Lee Adams, was Lee's Aunt and she loved visiting Arkansas anytime we could when I was growing up at home in Iola, KS. Will always remember my dear Aunt Earnesteen Clark and Uncle JB along with all of Lee's siblings. We wish you all the very best of luck during these hard times. Life is unfortunately so unfair at times and we never understand why at the time. Good luck to all of you and Hang Tough!!! David and Cynthia Zornes3111 Miramonte Circle Edmond, OK 73003
A man who “REFLECTED” the many fruits Of Christ.The community has lost a trusted & honest man of “VALOR” who is to be remembered by all those who have known him to be a man of “PEACE & INTERACTION” within our community & county.May God bless & comfort the family. The Reynolds Family
My sincere condolences to Phillip’s wife, children, siblings, his parents, grandchildren, friends and church family.

He obviously had a great impact on the lives of so many throughout his life and is an inspiration to all. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. Sincerely, Mark B. Campbell
Continued thoughts and prayers for Bro. Clark’s family. Bro. Clark will always hold a special place in our hearts from the impact he made in all of our lives. My precious momma thought of him as one of her own kids and loved Bro. Clark so much. He supported my momma and our family through her illnesses and during our last days with her. I could never thank him enough for his encouraging words and heartfelt prayers during that time. Over the years that Bro. Clark has served the Marshall Assembly of God Church and the community, it is so apparent that he was a man of God, and God used him to bless many lives. Thank you Bro. Clark for being such a blessing!
My dad Lawrence Page was a cousin to Lee Clark. I am really sorry for your loss. I pray God's comfort to the family.
I'm so sorry for Natalie and the kids we loved bro Clark and looked up to him. He was such a God called pastor and friend. We will be praying for you all I know it hurts so bad but we have a promise that we will all be together again. I know my mom and him are laughing and having a great time in heaven.
So sorry to hear of your loss. May the Lord give you and your family the peace that He knows you need.
Our prayers and sympathy to the entire Clark family.He will certainly be missed.
We are so sorry for your loss, but know he is in Jesus arms now. We have been praying for your family.

What a great loss for our community. Bro. Clark you will be missed. Heaven gained another angel.
Nat, Kayla, Jerad, Cody, and family...thank you for sharing him and letting him be an older brother to me. I've never had to worry if I was cared about. There weren't days the phone went silent or the roads went cold to what one didn't call and ask "Hey you need to make a run to Clinton or Harrison?" or "Hey you hungry? I'm thinking Chinese?" Or I'd get a call or text "Hey we need to learn this song by Sunday. I wanna to use it before or after my sermon." I won't even go into the times he's been there in the hospital, nursing home and funeral home with me. I absolutely loved him and I love y'all and am praying for y'all night and day.
Prayers for you and your family! Phillip was loved by many and knew by all. We will forever be missed.
Always enjoyed running into Brother Clark out in the community he always had a big smile and a kind word.My heart breaks for his family.You are in my prayers.
Phillip wiil be missed but never forgotten. I will be praying for you all. Sending my love and hugs!!
Had so many good visits with him at the newspaper he was a special person praying for all of the Family.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. May your memories give you comfort in the days to come. God bless you.
I loved Bro. Clark like a brother. He was a very dear friend. He was always there for our family when we needed support. Many hospital visits, many home visits, and just being there in our time of need. I have spent many countless hours working beside him while building our church and many other projects that needed to be done. He dedicated his life to his church and his community, but he also was dedicated to and loved his family. To the family I want to say that we are hurting along with you and are praying for peace and comfort. Love you all.
My thoughts and Prayers to your family and your church family.
Dear Clark family:Please know that our prayers are going up for you. We cannot be there in person because of previous commitments but we will be with you in prayers and in spirit. I know that we will never fully understand this world and the stuff that happens to us. I have to put my trust in Him who knows about this and is bringing some kind of peace and comfort for your family.
I’ve only met Brother Clark a few times but he had a kind disposition. You could tell he was a Christian man without anyone saying he was. He just had that air about him.

I’m so sorry for your loss 🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️

So sorry for your loss
I am stunned and saddened by Brother Clark's passing. Although I did not know him that well, the times I was with him, I was inspired by his caring for those around him. He spent a lot of time with my mother when she was ill For that I will always be thankful, Brother Clark was a true man of God and I am praying for his family. Thank you brother Clark for your service to the Kingdom.
May God's peace comfort and keep you at this time. Prayers for you all.
We have prayed and cried with you. Bro Clark was a true servant of God. His willingness to cook for everyone is something I respect highly. He will be very sorely missed. He was a godly leader in our little town; always had a smile and a kind word. Truly one of God’s beloved kids. At home now with Abba. May God fill the gaping hole in your hearts with His peace that passes understanding. Our thoughts and prayers continue with you all, especially Natalie.

Wow, didn't think I would cry this much to give a short message. There's just too much to say about the impact you've had on my life and family. My tears are for our loss Bro.

I will sing to celebrate God's promise fulfilled in your life. We know you are celebrating at the throne of God & have placed your hands upon the wounds of Jesus. I think "Ain't No Grave" is what you're singing right now.Give Stephanie a hug for me.
