Travis B. Clark of Walker, Louisiana, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 13th, 2022, with his family by his side. He was 80 years old.
Travis was a lifelong resident and former Mayor of Walker. He proudly served and was an Army veteran. He was a local steel fabrication business owner until his retirement, after which he devoted countless hours to his various works within the community. Near and dear to his heart was Walker Baptist Church, his Crossway Church family, and the Kiwanis Club of Walker. Travis was an avid race fan. He participated in stock car racing at a younger age and enjoyed traveling to and watching these events for well over 50 years. One of his greatest joys in life was spending time with his grandchildren. He referred to them as the center of his universe. Unknown random and deliberate acts of kindness were and will continue to be his legacy.
Travis is survived by his wife of 57 years, Linda Wesley Clark, his daughter Traci Clark, his son David Clark and wife Jamye, his sister Betty Clark, sisters-in-law Rhonda Clark, Evelyn Stafford, and Judy Owens, several nieces and nephews and his cherished grandchildren Alli and Jase Clark.
He was preceded in death by his parents Cato and Lelea Clark, brothers Gene and Charlie Dave Clark, sister-in-law Tina Clark, in-laws George Melvin and Lula Wesley, brother-in-law Hiram Stafford, and nephew Randall Stafford.
To respectfully honor his wishes, no funeral services will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Words of condolence may be mailed to PO Box 218, Walker, LA 70785.

To the Clark family. You all have my sincerest condolences. I worked for Mr. Travis Clark at C&S Enterprise for many many years. Over the years even after the company close I would regularly go to the house and help out. It saddened my heart to hear of his passing. He later visited me and my family. Mr. Clark always came either with gifts, money, and even food, As my health began to fail he visited me regularly. We never loss contact, as we remained friends for many years. I will continue to keep you all lifted in prayerRD Garner and family.🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

The Clark Family,
Mr. Travis was a frequent visitor of my father for many years before his passing and he always came bearing gifts of some sort. They would sit chatting on the porch for hours. After my father passed, he would occasionally visit my mother and chat for a while. He was a kind- hearted person and we valued his friendship. We just heard of his passing and our hearts and prayers are with you all.

So sorry for your loss Mrs. Linda and family. Mr. Travis was wonderful man. He helped many, but never wanted credit or acknowledgement; he certainly help Ricky and I when we were building our house.

I’ve lost a friend that loved like a brother. I always knew if I ever needed somebody I could count on him. He had a heart as big as he was and was generous to a fault. He never wanted anybody to know that he did so many good deeds. There isn’t enough ink to print my T C stories. He will be missed by so many people.
