Kohen Neil Clark
The Guest Book is expired.
Kohen Neil Clark, age 3 of Sparta, Mo., went home to play with Jesus on Tuesday, November 13, just after 4:40 p.m.
Kohen was loved by everyone who met him, a child truly full of life. He will forever be known as an "ornery", blue-eyed angel with a grin and dimples to melt your heart and put a smile on your face. Kohen loved motorcycles, cowboy boots, playing outside and always wanted to have a hat on his head and change in his pockets. Kohen is and always will be the absolute love of his mother's life, her constant shadow in life and a light that will shine with her forever. Now there is a broken piece of her heart that will never mend.
Kohen is preceded in death by his great-grandfather, Manford (M.J.) "Snook" Braden of Sparta.
Kohen is survived by his mother and father, Katelynn Melton and John Clark of Sparta; sister, Tori Clark of Ozark; grandparents, Rick and Linda Pratt of Sparta, Jeff and Sebina Melton of Chadwick; aunt, Kristin Melton of Sparta; uncles, Dakota Melton of Chadwick and Joey Loomis of Strafford; first cousin and best friend, Caleb Loomis of Strafford; great-grandparents, Wendell and Ann Robertson of Ava, Doris Braden of Sparta, Earl and Pat Pratt of Springfield; seven great-aunts; four great-uncles; numerous cousins, extended family and friends.
Services will be 2:00 p.m., Saturday, November 17, 2012 in Barnes Funeral Home, Ozark, with Rev. "Bally" Johnson officiating. Burial will follow in Bruner Cemetery. Visitation will be Saturday, 1:00 p.m. until service time in the funeral home.
