Leonard Franklin Clark, 64, of Warsaw, departed from his earthly journey on Friday, May 31, 2019. He was born September 18, 1954 to Leonard Dandridge Clark & Alice Virginia Smith Clark who preceded him in death. In 1986, Frank found the love of his life, Charlene Fancher, in Biloxi, Mississippi while he was traveling and working for Zapata Haynie. He then decided to stay in Mississippi to be with Charlene. The two returned to Portsmouth, Virginia in 1992 and worked for Dolly Madison Bakery and later for Schwan’s food delivery. In 2006, he returned to his hometown of Farnham and continued the profession that he always loved, being a waterman. When he retired, he took a part time newspaper carrier position with the Richmond Times Dispatch.

Mr. Clark went by many names, Frankie, Frank, Bubba, Cat, Paw Paw, and Poppa Frank by those close to him but one thing was for sure, and that was his love for his family. He enjoyed playing baseball in his earlier years and continued to be an avid Baltimore Orioles fan. Frank was also a Redskins fan, enjoyed Nascar racing and remained a hunting and fishing enthusiast his entire life.
He is survived by his loving wife, Charlene Fancher Clark; two sons, Carl Joseph Malota (Mandy) & Jeffery Scott Malota (Leigh); five grandchildren; two sisters, Sue Osborne & Sandra Harper; three nieces, one nephew and three great nieces. Frank will be deeply missed by all.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
Memorial contributions may be made to American Cancer Society: Relay for Life of the Northern Neck at 4240 Park Place Ct. Glen Allen, VA 23060 in honor of Leonard Franklin Clark.
