May 29, 2019

Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services would like to congratulate Morgan and Madison Clark, twin daughters of Clark Waters, graduated last Saturday at Forsyth Central High School.

0n April 29, 2003, Clark Waters went home after teaching Structure Fire Control in an acquired structure. He was later found dead as a result of sudden cardiac arrest and his death was later ruled as a “Line Of Duty Death” by the National Fallen Firefighter Association.  

Waters was a Sergeant with Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services and served as the department’s training officer. He was also a member of the Jefferson Volunteer Fire Department and was a Georgia Smoke Diver. Prior to his role with Cherokee County, Waters worked as an instructor for the Georgia Fire Academy for 4 years. Waters was also served 12 years in the United States Marine Reserves.

According to Cherokee County Assistant Fire Chief, Eddie Robinson, “Clark loved life and was dedicated to his family and his brothers in the fire service. Clark only knew one way‚ the right way. He approached his professional and personal life with the same intensity and as a result was loved by all. He will be missed but never forgotten. Clark was a devoted and loving father to his two daughters‚ Morgan and Madison Clark and was the cherished and loving son to Douglas and Van Waters Sr. Clark was a loyal and loving Brother to Jan and Kim.”

Congratulations to Madison and Morgan for a job well done and we know your father would have been proud of you both!
