This year we are honoring Don Clark, “Protector of the Sand”

Don Clark, “The protector of the Sand,” served the City of Virginia Beach and the legal profession for many years. He was named one of the Commonwealth’s “Leaders in the Law,” served as “King of the Misty Isles” during the 2001 Neptune Festival, and was also the President of the Virginia Beach Bar Association, receiving the Distinguished Service Award in 2004.

Born in Washington, D.C., Don attended the United States Naval Academy from which he graduated in 1959. He proudly served his country aboard the destroyer, U.S.S. Stormes, for five years. During his naval career, he met his beautiful bride and wife, Faye, to whom he was married for more than 50 years.

Don earned a J.D. degree from the George Washington University School of Law. He began a distinguished law career in Virginia Beach that lasted for over 44 years. In 1972, Don co-founded a firm that later became Clark & Stant. Under his leadership, it became one of the largest law firms in Southeastern Virginia. In 1999, he merged the firm with Williams Mullen, making the combined entity the third largest law firm in the Commonwealth.

This accomplished leader spent the last months of his life battling leukemia. Don’s character lives on through those he touched. In addition to our other Kiwanis Charities and in honoring Don, we are also supporting The American Cancer Society this year for their efforts in the fight against cancer.
