William Nicholas Gatliff (Nick), 53, of Clinton, Arkansas departed from this world on Sunday October 11, 2020. He was born March 13, 1967 in Baton Rouge, Louisanna to Osceloa Walker Gatliff and Barbara Dean Selby. Nick was trained in mechanics and worked on diesel engines, tractors, cars, and everything with moving parts. Building car models and model airplanes were hobbies he enjoyed. He was also a talented woodworker and builder. He was a very curious and creative person in general, he was good at everything he was interested in learning. He loved being outdoors hunting and fishing. He especially loved to fish with his family.

Left to cherish his memory are his children Kerri Jones & husband Ronnie, Hannah Hulsey & husband Kyle, and Landon Gatliff; Siblings, Walley Gatliff & Becky Nichols; Mother, Barbara Toussiant; Father, Osceloa Gatliff; 10 grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, and other family members and friends. He was preceded in death by son, William Nathaniel Gatliff.

Nick was a good storyteller. His children remember him sitting down with them and telling amazing stories he made up in the moment. His grandchildren were also able to enjoy this talent.
Nick had a servant's heart. He volunteered with the Scotland Fire Department while he lived in the community. Nick served on the Scotland School Board and also on the Clinton School Board for a total of ten years. He regularly volunteered at the Van Buren County Food For Life.

A lakeside memorial service will be held at the Choctaw Recreation Area on Friday, October 16, 2020 at 5:30 PM. Friends of Nicks are welcome to come celebrate his life with the family.
