Jeffrey “Jeff” Craig Clark was born September 30,
1964 in Tyler, Texas and passed away April 23, 2020 in Leesville, Louisiana at the age of 55. Jeff was a proud soldier in the Army for 23 years and was a life-long military man. He retired at Fort Polk and would often attend funerals of veterans who
had no family. He was a big man with a big heart, and he loved his community. Jeff demonstrated this by coaching and supporting the Leesville Branch of the American Youth Soccer Organization. The players that he coached didn’t want to move on to the
next age group because they didn’t want to leave “Coach”. Jeff was also a dedicated President of the Band Boosters for Leesville High School. If the band had an event or needed support, Jeff was there. He was an avid Cowboys fan, loved turtles, and
had a green “arm” instead of a green thumb because he could make anything grow beautifully. Jeff owned Bouncin’ on the Bayou and Inflatables supported other small businesses. Whenever you saw him, he always had a smile that was contagious. Throughout
his military career, he moved through many places and left a path of people who loved him and kept in touch. Most of all, he was a wonderful, loving husband, father, brother, grandfather, son, uncle, and friend.
Jeff was preceded in death
by his mother and stepmother, Barbara Jean Arnold and Linda Clark, grandparents, Lorna “Granny” Jean Clark, “Papaw” Roy Anderson Clark, and Ernest Arnold.
