William (Tee) Clark was born in Marion, VA on Oct. 7, 1935; the baby boy to George and Mattie Clark. Early in his life, the family moved to Covington, VA, a city he completely loved.
He was a great sportsman, playing football for his high school alma mater, Watson High. While at Watson High, he courted, fell in love and married his first love and mother of his children, Annie B. Jordan Clark. They were married until just months shy of their 50 year anniversary, losing her through her passing in 2005.
Tee knew and loved the Lord dearly. He often talked about his faith in God with Janice, whom he was baptized with at FBC in 1968. He worked at the paper mill, now Westrock. He studied their journeyman program, graduating in1979 and worked as a boiler house mechanic until he retired due to health issues sometime in early years of the 2000’s.
As a widower, Tee connected with widowed class mate from Watson High, Jeanne Spurlock Randolph. They married in December 2008 and lived in Richmond VA.
She is left to mourn her loss from their short marriage of 10 yrs.
