Bill Clark dies at 63

Posted By on Wed, May 16, 2007 at 9:23 AM

William E. Clark, CEO of CDI Contractors, died Tuesday at 63 after a bout with cancer. The former University of Arkansas trustee has been one of the giants of Little Rock business.


Ruebel Funeral Home will be handling arrangements.


His son sent a message to friends that said there will be a private graveside service Thursday and a public memorial service at noon Monday at Immanuel Baptist Church. CDI's offices will be closed Monday.


Memorials may be made to the Parks Conservancy, PO Box 7329, Little Rock, AR 72217. This is an effort to restore 13 acres of wetlands on the Arkansas River near the Clinton Library. It will be called the Bill Clark Presidential Park Wetlands as a tribute to his love of the outdoors.


Clark's son William also spoke of the future of CDI, a partnership with Dillard's Inc. He said he had spoken with Bill Dillard Monday and that business would continue as it has for the last 20 years.
