Clarence D. Sisk

ATLANTIC BEACH — Clarence D. Sisk, 87, born February 14, 1925, passed away Saturday, March 3, 2012. Clarence, known to his fellow police officers as “Sisko,” was a City Detective serving on the Jacksonville Police Department for over 30 years (1957-1988), retiring in January 1988.  He was a WWII Veteran, serving in the Military Police in the Pacific. He earned his Associates Degree from Beaufort Technical Institute.

He was an exemplary police officer who was always willing to give those who were deserving a second chance.  Many a young teen would come back years later to recount a story about how he had helped them along the way. He was a devoted family man who loved his job and the community he served. After retiring, he and his wife moved to Atlantic Beach and Emerald Isle, respectively.

No services are planned.

Survivors include his wife, Bedie Sisk; sons,   Joe G. Sisk and wife Laura of Cape Carteret, Clarence “David” Sisk Jr. and wife Becky of Smithfield; daughter,         Jan Churchill and husband Buddy of Tampa, Fla.; brothers, Ralph and Herman Sisk of Lincolnton; six grandchildren, David, Todd, Megan, Adam, Natalie and Joey. Also, one great-grandson, Leo, and one god-grandson Brenton Hartman.

Pop, greatest Pop in the whole world, will be deeply missed by all who loved him.
