David Lack

David Lack was all about home, being born at home and died at home. David Cecil Lack passed at 5:11 a.m. on Thursday, July 9, 2015. David was born on Monday, September 16, 1935, in the township of Chalk Bluff in Clay County, Ark. David was the eldest of six children born to Cecil and Helen Almareda (Haywood) Lack.

David and Billie Clemons were together 60 years; married in Greenway by Baptist Pastor Valley P. Wright.

David was a factory worker for American Motors and Johns-Manville and was a farmer working for Faulk Farms and Scott Farms.

David was preceded in death by two of his sons, Dennis and Myrl, and his four brothers and sister, Norman, Thurion, Denny, Herbert and Linda.

He is survived by his wife, Billie Clemons Lack; son David (Debbie) of Popular Bluff, Mo.; daughter Kathy (Gary) Britt of Lakeland, Fla.; son Bobby of Piggott and daughter Jackie (Wayne) Smith of St Francis.

A true grandpa, David, thought all his 12 grandchildren were above average as well as his eight great-grandchildren.

David loved, snowball cakes, Twinkies and vanilla ice cream. His favorite activities were mowing the grass, fishing and napping on the couch. For many years David's hobby was woodworking, making yard ornaments, benches and stools. And another truth, David loved his dachshund dogs, Tobey and Dixie, more than he loved Billie.

Visitation will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday, July 10, at Hoggard and Sons Chapel in Piggott. A private burial will be held at Gravel Hill Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to St Bernard's Regional Medical Center in Jonesboro, whose staff members took great care of David in his final days.
