Thomas Franklin Clark was born to Alonzo "Lonnie" Franklin and Rose Anna Knight Clark in Jackson County Arkansas. He was raised on the Clark Family farm on Steembuger Lake in Possum Grape, Arkansas near Bradford. In 1948 he married Eleanor Passalaqua, a local daughter of Sicilian immegrants who had recently moved to the area from Chicago. He worked as a young man at a local sawmill for W.C. Ward in Bradford and later ran his own sawmill with Floyd Robinson. "Reese", as he was called by friends, fathered four children and later adopted a grandson and raised him. He worked as a biolermaker all over the country and managed the work crew for many jobs. He was a union member with the National Boilermakerers Union. He retired in the late 1980's. Tom was an avid outdoorsman and a cowboy at heart. He loved old western movies. He was a vertern of the U.S. Army and is honored on the "Hometown Heros" Wall in downtown Bradford. The Bradford area is still populated with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
