Sgt Christopher Scott Clark

My brother, US Army Sgt Christopher Scott Clark, 54 of Norfolk Virginia left this world on Saturday July 21st, 2018.  He now resides with our heavenly father and his best friend - grandfather “Pappa”.

Chris served 24 years in the United States Army where he rose among the ranks while fighting wars on our behalf.   He belonged to the 82nd Airborne Division, 102 Brigade.  Among the many places served, he spent many years at Fort Bragg NC with his airborne brothers and Fort Leonard-Wood MO training future soldiers as a drill sergeant.

Born in Portsmouth VA to his late mother Brookie Dion, Chris is survived by his two daughters - Renee Clark, Courtney Clark of Palm Bay FL, his sisters Denise Walton, Donna Douglas, his Aunt Evelyn McCarthy and Uncle Earl Whitley.  

Chris was a unique and spirited man.  He had a sense of humor, quirky smile that could soften even the hardest frown.  He was smart as a whip grasping the hardest of concepts, most the time without cracking a book.  He was a no-nonsense kinda guy, rough around the edges but the most honorable character & heart full of love.  

His daughters held the biggest part of his heart.  His love for them was obvious even to a stranger.   Chris was hard, tough and could drive some to insanity.  Yet he would fight to the death for the safety & protection of his daughters, his sisters, his family, for those who held his love.

He was a strong, resilient person. He took a very difficult and heartbreaking start in life as motivation to forge a path of his choosing; a life & successful career of his own.

The Army was everything to Chris. He was a patriot, a soldier down to his core. He loved his country.  He loved the Army. Although retired, He could be heard singing cadence through out the day.

He will be missed dearly.  Knowing that he is now with his mother, his grandmother and his grandfather playing solitaire and fussing everyone else out is our only comfort.

We love you “Bubba” and we always will.  Your sister, Donna.
