Roy Clark Greathouse, the son of Opie L. and Margaret (Morris) Greathouse, was born January 20, 1949, in Watts, Oklahoma, and departed this life on July 2, 2022, in Westville, Oklahoma at the age of 73 years, 5 months and 12 days.
Clark enjoyed life and he loved his family. He enjoyed being outdoors, whether he was hunting, fishing, driving around the farm or cutting wood. He was an inventor; he once turned a Honda Civic into a wood splitter, and he could split several rick of wood in no time flat. He married the love of his life, Nina Partain, on October 20, 1967, and six months later he was drafted into the Army where he served proudly.
Clark began working at Webb Wheel around the time he and Nina married and worked there most of his life, eventually being promoted to supervisor. He worked second shift for many years and ran his own business removing tree stumps, Big C Stump Removal, in the mornings and on weekends. Clark made an impression on everyone he met, usually made them laugh (he loved jokes and pranks,) and he will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his son David Clark Greathouse, his brothers John Greathouse and Bobby Greathouse, and his great-grandson Lucas Clark Taylor.
He is survived by a loving family which includes his wife of over 54 years, Nina (Partain) Greathouse of the home; his children Brad Greathouse and wife Lisa of Watts, Michelle Seay and husband Rocky of the Chance community near Watts, Kristy Reeves, also of the Chance community and Michelle Greathouse of Westville; eleven grandchildren: Curtis (Stephanie), Cody (Taylor), Keith (Olivia), Rusty (Sadie), Justin (Nikki), Holly, Roxanna, Beth (Tyler Taylor), Sara (Tyler Larson), Megan and Katy; eleven great-grandchildren: Chase, Kadden, Addilynn, Emmalynn, Deven, Braeson, Zander, Stetson, Riley, Gracelynn, and Khloe; and his beloved pets, Abby, Delaney, Sadie and Tiger. Several nieces, nephews, friends and other relatives also survive him.
