Billy D. Clark, 85, passed away Wednesday, March 17, 2020, at his home in Oxford. Due to the current public health and safety concerns, the family is planning a memorial service for a later date to celebrate Billy’s life.  

Billy, a Master Mason, was born on February 24, 1935, to the late Delmar and Flo Clark, in Darlin, Miss. Billy worked for Ole Miss for many years and was the owner of three very successful restaurants. He loved to garden in his spare time. Billy will be dearly missed by his family and friends. 

He is survived by one son, William B. (Liza) Clark, of Crockett, Texas; one daughter, Mary (James) Flanders, of Oxford; two brothers, Glen “Snowball” (Frances) Clark and Buster (Elaine) Clark, both of Oxford; five grandchildren, Chadwick, Virginia, Alexandra, Josh, and Zach; six great-grandchildren; a host of cousins, nieces, and nephews – all were loved, but too many to mention; and his dear friend, Joyce Littlejohn.
