Chad Earl Clark
Chad Clark passed away on Sunday, June 22, 2014, in Floresville, Texas, at the age of 46 years, 10 months, and 3 days. He was born on Aug. 19, 1967, in San Antonio to Richard Earl and Betty Jane Hester Clark.
Chad was a former resident of Runge and a longtime resident of Floresville. He was a member of the Floresville Masonic Lodge No. 515, the Police Officers Association, and A.C.T.S. Chad loved to read and loved to fish. Not only did he contribute to his community by being a police officer and constable, he also dedicated many years to coaching Little League and helping the Boy Scouts of America, and was involved in the Floresville High School cheer boosters. He enjoyed a good cigar and enjoyed spending time on the beach. Chad loved his family a great deal, and loved his friends just as much. There was always a smile on his face, and always a story waiting to be told. He was often full of laughter and jokes, and he was always there to put a smile on everyone’s face. Chad will be missed dearly by his family, friends, and everyone he met.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Chad is survived by his children, Kayla Clark and Marah Clark, both of Floresville; brother Kiley Clark and wife Diane Meier of Floresville; ex-wife Melissa Clark of Floresville; nieces Autumn, Charley, and Madison Clark; great-nephew Eithan Rodriguez; and a host of friends.
A rosary was recited on Saturday, June 28, at 2:30 p.m. in the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Floresville.
A funeral Mass followed, celebrated by the Rev. Dennis Jarzombek.
A memorial service was held on Sunday at 3 p.m. in the Franklin Funeral Home Chapel in Floresville, with Gordon Lindley officiating.
A police procession departed from Franklin Funeral Home to the Floresville Event Center where a special police officers memorial service was held. After a riveting rendition of “Amazing Grace,” played on bagpipes, Chad was saluted by his peers. Final roll call was called, and after Chad gave no answer, he was 10-42, and badge number 395 was retired. A 21-gun salute followed, and the flags were presented to his two daughters, Kayla and Marah.
“Taps” was played, and then everyone gathered to eat and celebrate the life of a great man.
