With distinction, grace and humor William "Bill" Clark served the Lord through the United Methodist Church. As a clergy he was known for looking beyond the wall of the church to the sanctuary of the community. Involved with many activities outside the church he took Christ to the world.
Bill Clark was the son of Paul H. Clark and Juanita Northup Clark of Summit County, Ohio. He was the brother of George R. Clark, Jay A. Clark and Elizabeth J. Clark.
He married Dorothy Louise Jesson, an accomplished musician,on April 27, 1946. They had two children: Philip Allen Clark and Christine Marlene Clark Ferguson.
His ministry began in the Asheville District at the Leicester Charge. Over the next thirty years he served as an active pastor. Following retirement he continued in ministry as Director of the Burke Cooperative Ministry in Morganton, N.C. where he and Dorothy made their home.
Even with cancer he continued in ministry, recording video's for the hospice program to use with their other patients.
A celebration of his life and ministry was held at Christ United Methodist Church in Drexel. He was a Preacher, Poet, and Pastor.
