Dear Thomas Family,You don’t know me but I am very close to Judy and knew Leon & Nivel. Wesley is same age as my youngest and have grown up together in Jacksonville. We too lost our firstborn too soon, at the beginning of the pandemic. Prayer is good for the soul and you’ll need it during these coming days and especially the Holidays. We’ll comfort Judy here, she has many friends and be extremely thankful for your big family to comfort you in this hard time. We will keep you and yours in our prayers.
I had opportunity to work with Clint at Young Homes ICF/IID- Friendship Community Care in Russellville. Clinton was attending school at Tech and he helped cover the overnight at the facility. He was a really good guy, and so involved in the field of Developmental Disabilities throughout his short life. My heart goes out to his family & friends. I will remember and miss him often.
Words cannot begin to describe the feeling of loss. Clint is a very dear friend and, I am very proud to say, Fellow Brother. It is my honor to have known such a wonderful man who made sincere contributions to everyone he met. Take comfort in knowing that, although, he has laid down his earthly working tools; Clint has been called to the Celestial Lodge Above. Till we meet again my dear Brother.
Clint and Mayfan , We are so so sorry for the loss of your precious son. May God's Love hold you close during this difficult time. Love and prayers. Bobby and Connie.
My sympathies goes to the family and many friends Clint had. He was a good friend to all. His passing leaves a void in our community. Love and prayers, Sandy Buchanan

Our heartfelt condolences and prayers for Vickie and the family. Have known and been Masonic Brothers with Clint for tens of years. An outstanding and of strong Character Christian man who loved his family and served numerous Masonic Lodges as duly elected and appointed officers. Rest in peace, Brother. You will be missed greatly by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing you.
My deepest and most sincere condolences to the family and friends of Clint.
Clint was a big loveable teddy Bear. He gave of himself fully and was always willing to go above and beyond himself to help anyone do anything. He was a wise man and very well liked by everyone. He wore many hats and fulfilled jobs most wouldn't He will be missed. He was a man's man and he will be so sorely missed. He was a precious friend To know him was to love him. Diane & Larry Pritchett
Clint was instrumental and the most knowledgeable individual we have ever had in our local republican committee. He truly helped build our republican committee to what it is today. He made sure our election commission functioned properly and honestly. I never met an individual as dedicated to elections as this man. I will miss him greatly. Whereever eternal life is promised, Clint will be there
So very sorry for your loss! He will be missed in so many ways! He was a pleasure to work with City Beautiful Texarkana, Ar.
Mayfan and Clint, I'm so sorry for your loss. It's always hard to lose a loved one, but especially a child. You have my prayers that the Lord will sustain you as you grieve.
On behalf of myself and the members of Texarkana Masonic Lodge #341, please accept our heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one. He will be sorely missed by all the Masons of Southwest Arkansas, and especially by me. I considered him to be a true and faithful friend.
I'm so sorry. When I received the email Thursday morning from the County Committee, I was heartbroken. To lose a Friend, Brother in Christ and Fellow Lodge Brother is Devastating. My heart goes out to all of Clint's Family in this time of life. Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers during your loss. Praying for GOD's Comfort and Peace in the Days to come. Clint was a Man worth knowing and a great friend. I thank God for allowing our paths to cross in life, even though it was just a few years.
Clint was the epitome of a man who loved and lived his life for GOD, FAMILY, and COUNTRY. As a Miller County Republican Committee member, Clint has served as County Chair, Secretary, Election Commissioner, and as chair of several committees. Clint has also served Miller County as a Constable. Clint's current position was as the Miller County Republican Committee Secretary.Some of us know Clint for his unapologetic online posts, most of the time in defense of Christian and conservative values, but sometimes just for fun. Others know him personally for his witty and sarcastic sense of humor that could make you laugh out loud until you cried. Many more have experienced his contributions and influence through the many gifts he possessed and shared with us, most notably, his efficient organization, technical/online talents, and journalism. Clint was a great man who will be immensely missed. Farewell friend.
Clint, Mafan, Shannon and family,So sorry to hear about your loss. We will be praying for all of you as you mourn Clint’s death. Linda and David Hidy
