Obituary: Clarence Edward Nelms of Stuttgart

Clarence Edward Nelms, 94, of Stuttgart passed away Wednesday, June 16, 2021, at Baptist Health-Little Rock. Mr. Nelms was born July 8, 1926, in Hamburg, Ark., to Benjamin and Cora Nelms. He retired as shift foreman after over 30 years with Riceland. He always enjoyed gardening and was known to sit in a rocking chair under the pear tree to “watch his garden grow”. He had a passion for the outdoor whether it be hunting, trapping or fishing. He loved to entertain big crowds with a fish fry or singing around the piano, but his great love was his grandchildren and great-grandchildren and spending time with them. He was a deacon and faithful member of Park Avenue Missionary Baptist Church.
