Obituary for James Edward "Jimmy" Clark, Sr.

James Edward Clark, Sr., son of the late Arthur D. Clark and Lillie Bell Armstrong-Clark, was born June 3, 1937 in Elizabeth, New Jersey. He was known as “Jimmy” by his family and friends.

At the age of 17, James was working at a store in his hometown of Elizabeth New Jersey. He saw his friends running by his workplace. He asked them, “Where were they going?” They told him, they were going to join the navy. That day, James quit his job and went with his friends to enlist in the United States Navy. James served his country well and received an Honorable Discharge.

After he left military service, James married Gloria Ann Clark-McCrea from Baltimore, Maryland in 1963. From this union, they had two children.

In his working life, James worked at Elizabethtown Gas Company and Singer Manufacturing Company in Elizabeth, New Jersey.

James was a member of Guiding Star United Holy Church where his mother, the late Lillie Bell Clark was one of the founding members. While attending Guiding Star, he sang on the choir. God blessed James with a beautiful voice.

On Monday, August 26, 2019, James Edward Clark, Sr. went home to be with the Lord.

James leave to cherish fond memories, his two children, Sharon Taylor (husband, Mark) of Burlington, NJ and James E. Clark, Jr. (wife, Patricia) of Rahway, NJ; two siblings: Mildred Evans of Ellicott City, MD and Ruth Howze (husband, James) of Lakeland, FL; six grandchildren: Keith Clark (wife, Amanda), Kirstin Smith (husband, Alexander), Shanae Clark, Isaiah Clark, Jarius Clark, and Lawren D.
