James T. “Tommy” Clarke passed away peacefully on July 15, 2021 at the age of 75 and is no longer in pain. He enjoyed fishing, hunting and driving on the beach while vacationing at Ocracoke Island. Tommy was born in Danville, VA and later moved to Norfolk, VA. He became a longshoreman, Local 970, and retired from them after twenty plus years. Tommy was a hard worker, a do it yourself person and he enjoyed tinkering on his trucks and spending time in his garage.
Tommy is survived by Vicki Clarke, his loving wife of fifty-one years; two sons, Troy Clarke, Bryan Clarke and wife Cristie; a sister, Carol Warren; two grandchildren, Taylor and C.J.; and precious great granddaughter, Scarlett. He was predeceased by his father, Irvin and mother, Frances Clarke.
