George Madison "Jim" Clark passed away peacefully on May 12.
George was born March 9, 1938 in Houston to George Maltby Clark and Eula Pauline Austin Clark.
He is survived by a son, Gregory Clark; and an aunt, Anna Maye Gandy; niece, Lori Leatherwood and husband, Del; nephews, Mike Thomas and wife, Joan, Geryk Thomas and wife, Shyree and Patrick Thomas and wife, Michelle; great nieces and nephews, Matt and Lorin Leatherwood, Chad and Courtnea Thomas, Christian Mazzini and Ethan Thomas; and numerous other relatives and friends.
Jim was the owner of Cowboy Truck Parts in Houston for many years. He then owned a leather shop in Bandera, Texas before relocating to Eagle Lake in 2000 to open Eagle Lake Leather Shop.
Jim was a throwback to the old West. He truly had an artistic gift, which showed in his meticulous leatherwork, his many drawings, and his love for musical instruments.
As Reverend Ardith Nelson so appropriately relayed in a poem, Jim was a "Good Feller".
Jim was preceded in death by his parents, George and Pauline Clark; sister, Patricia Clark Walters; an infant son, Christopher Austin Clark; and his grandparents, Tom and Ethel Austin and Oscar and Mary Clark.
Funeral services were led by Reverend Nelson and held Friday, May 15 at Eagle Lake Funeral Home with burial at Lakeside Cemetery.
Pallbearers were Mike Thomas, Patrick Thomas, Del Leatherwood, Matt Leatherwood, Christian Mazzini, H. L. Austin and Tim Austin.
Sympathy is extended to the family in their loss.
