Completing Life’s Journey…Crossing over to grace…. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith…Life’s Journey….

A beloved Father, Son, Brother, Nephew, and Friend’s life closed on Tuesday, August 18, 2020, when brother Arkill “Ark” Stripling answered the heavenly father summons, whereas God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.

Arkill was born on November 20, 1978 to the parentage of Lloyd Stripling and the late Rosie Marie Adams in Houston County, Georgia. At an early age, Arkill accepted Christ as his lord and savior, and joined Oldfield Baptist Church where he was a member. He received his education through the Houston County School System. He had a love for football and his all-time favorite NFL team was the Green Bay Packers. Arkill had a heart of gold and nothing he possessed was too important to share with his family and close friends. He was known for his big smile and his humor. He had that kind way of making you laugh at that very moment when you needed it the most. His signature slogan was “Bread Game Shorty” and we all knew him as “Mr. Polo King.” Arkill believed in family and his most important accomplishment was being a father. He was the proud father of three beautiful girls. He appreciated and enjoyed life to the fullest.

Oh, don’t we remember how we loved to play…In a pile of dry leaves on a sunny fall day-We romped, and we jumped, and we shouted with glee, All in the shade of the old maple tree.
But now, Lord, we’re like the tired leaves on the tree, and we’re just hanging on as all folks can see, So hold us secure in Your own loving hand. Until we can reach Your blest promised land.

He was preceded in death by his Mother, Ms. Rosie M. Adams; Grandmother, Ms. Katie Stripling; and Grandfather, Mr. Arthur Lee Adams, Sr.

He leaves to cherish his memories: his father, Lloyd Stripling, Perry, GA, Devoted Grandmother, Mrs. Helen F. Adams, Perry, GA; children: Jeanne’ Marie Williams, Jakayla Milan Williams, Atlanta, GA; and Josiah Rosie Rounette Stripling, Perry, GA; Siblings: Deborah (Darrin) Rutledge, Stockbridge, GA; Dwayne (Shannon) Stripling, Jonesboro, GA; Trarski Stripling, Marietta, GA; Dontrell (Teresa) Adams, Warner Robins, GA; Lakeisha Stripling, Corey Adams, Perry, GA; April (Anthony) Poole, Warner Robins, GA; and Jason Stripling, Macon, GA. aunts: Mary Alice (Paul) Greer, Warner Robins, GA, Martha Ann (Samuel) Lawson, Byron, GA, Gloria Ann Robertson, Perry, GA, Angela Wells, Marietta, GA, Kathryn Lester, Perry, GA, Sametrice (Lazarus) Carter, Byron GA, uncles: Larry (Marsha) Felder, Fort Washington MD, Floyd Stripling (preceded him in death); Arthur (Brenda) Adams, Jr. Perry, GA, Kenneth Stripling (preceded him in death); Roy Adams, Perry, GA; Oscar Stripling (preceded him in death), Freddie (Jackie) Adams (preceded him in death), Rickey Adams, Perry, GA, Fernando Adams (preceded him in death), and Antonio Rogers, Warner Robins, GA. God Aunts: Barbara J. Thomas, Warner Robins, GA & Evelyn Sneed, Perry, GA; two devoted friends Dexter Johnson and Gregory Brown, Perry, GA. A host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.
