Nathaniel attended Hazard High School and graduated in the Class of 1970. Nathaniel then went on to establish a 20-year career in the United States Armed Forces, first as a soldier in the Army and then as a salty dog in the Navy where he fought in and survived three wars for his country.
In 1989, Nathaniel moved his family to Kingsland and became a well-known citizen of Camden County.
His wife, Ernestine Clark; his oldest son, Anthony Jerome Clark; and his four older brothers, Leon, Fred, Daniel/Danny Boy and Lawrence/BoBo Clark, preceded him in death.

Nathaniel — Bubby to his siblings and Uncle Podge to his many nieces and nephews — will be deeply missed and remembered forever by a host of family, friends and colleagues.
A celebration of life service will be held at 11 a.m.Friday, Sept. 11, at the home of Mr. Clark, 1111 Clarks Bluff Road in Kingsland.
