Clifton Burns Clark, 89 of Biloxi, passed away August 7th at the VA Medical Center. He was born July 13, 1931, the sixth of seven children to Harris and Mattie (Touchstone) Clark. He grew up in the Laurel area and learned what a good days work was all about and became interested in raising game chickens. After graduating high school, he joined the United States Air Force and served from November 1954 until his honorable discharge in January 1957. Cliff went to work moving houses and buildings, moving many over the years. In fact, he is known far and wide as "House Mover" and continued to raise game chickens his entire life. Cliff is remembered as an amazing dad who was giving but firm. He was the type that spoke his mind and always told you where he stood. Strong in his convictions, he was a very intelligent man who was loving, caring and giving to those who truly knew him. He will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by all whose life he touched. He was preceded by his parents, Harris & Mattie Clark, as well as his brothers Otis Malloy, Billy Joe and Warren Dale Clark, and his sister Betty Sue Clark. Left to xherish his memories are: his children: daughters Cassie (Shaun) Thurlow and Courtney (Robert) Beauvais, with sons Clifton "Booboo" Clark, Jr., Patrick Clark and Joshua Clark; one brother Collin Ray Clark and a sister, Mary Lou Clark. Cliff's final wishes were to be cremated, which his family is honoring. Service times are still in progress at this time. Trinity Funeral Services is honored to serve the Clark family in their time of need and asks everyone to keep them in your thoughts and prayers over the coming days.
