Rest in Peace Jimmy Clark
Senior softball has lost a great player. Jimmy Clark of Louisville, Ky passed away yesterday after a tragic accident. Jimmy played the last year with the 60 major team The Fossils out of Illinois and with 55AAA Metro Star out of Louisville. He had previously played with Jim and Joes out of Louisville where he won 4 world tournaments. He won several home run contests at the SPA world tournament. He truly loved the game and would travel anywhere to play. He loved to practice and we spent many a day hitting his garbage can full of balls. He will be missed by many as his heart was as big as his love for the game of sofball. He was a good Christian man who was a deacon at Valley View baptist church and taught 3 yr olds in Sunday School.Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Elizabeth and his grandson Zach who lived with him. Jimmy touched many lives with his love of the game of softball, his devotion to his family and his faith in God. He will be missed by many but not forgotten.

What a loss!!!!!!!!!
My prayers go out to his family.
Was it a car accident????
I will never forget all the good times that we had together and playing against each other.
Jim and Joe's and Huffman Electric had classic battles for years in the 55 age group and it usually came down to the two of us.
Always hated to see Jimmy come to bat because he never hit one easy.
I was playing left in Plano where he hit one off a house behind the field, I think this was 2002 when the Ultra's just came out and Jim and Joe's had their's shipped to the Motel.
Will miss you my friend and may you rest in peace.
Peace to your Family and my sincerest prayers.
God Bless all in this loss.

He was working on his car and it fell on him. We never know when life will end. Don't waste what little time we as seniors have left.
