Napoleon Bonaparte Clark, Sr., 73, departed this life on Friday, March 19, 2021, at Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He was preceded in death by his parents, Felton J. Clark, Sr., and Ocea Lee Clark; wife, Virginia Ann (Sales) Clark; brother, David Stanley Clark; sister, Rosa Mae Ryan; and brother, Roy Lee Clark.

Napoleon was born September 4, 1947, in LaFayette, Georgia, grew up in Dewberry, Georgia, and eventually settled in Chattanooga after returning from the Vietnam war. He was baptized into the Church of Christ at an early age. After graduating from Hill High School in 1966, Napoleon joined the U.S. Army, serving his country honorably for 8 years. He was a proud Vietnam war veteran and recipient of the Bronze Star. Napoleon retired from the U.S. Postal Service in October 2009 after 38 years of hard work and dedicated service. He was a licensed barber and loved to cut hair at Jackson’s Barber Shop after retirement. After the passing of his wife Virginia, Napoleon started serving as a volunteer at the Community Kitchen where he also gave free haircuts to the homeless. Napoleon enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, working outdoors, and creating lots of laughter with his well-known sense of humor, usually laughing just as much or more at his own jokes. Napoleon is loved and will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

To cherish his memory, Napoleon leaves three sons, Reginald (Kimberly) Henderson of Adairsville, Georgia; Felix (Deidre) Clark, of Kennesaw, Georgia; Napoleon (Rebecca) Clark, Jr., of Chattanooga, Tennessee; sister, Mary M. Clark, of Chattanooga, Tennessee; brothers, Felton J. Clark, Jr., of Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Alonzo L. Clark, of Flintstone, Georgia; 12 grandchildren, a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many cherished friends. Funeral and interment services will be held 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 31st, at Chattanooga National Cemetery, with Reverend James Talmadge Clark officiating. Mr. Clark will lie in state Tuesday, March 30, from 2-6 p.m. at John P. Franklin Funeral Home.
