Heyward Clint Belk, 66, of Columbia, died Wednesday, December 16, 2020. Born in Winnsboro, he was a son of the late HC and Pearline Branham Belk. Heyward worked as a carpenter and enjoyed the Gamecocks, the Braves, and his Chevrolet trucks. He liked doing his yard work and had many flowers. Heyward was loved by so many and will certainly be missed.

Survivors include six siblings, Louise Taylor (John) of White Oak, Jeanette Fink (Larry), Lavonne Maddox (Jack), Mamie Motley (Mason), and Janice Lee (Kerry) all of Columbia, and Kenny Belk (Earlene) of White Oak. He is also survived by 10 nieces and nephews and their 16 children. He loved his family and his much-loved chihuahua, Pearl.

A graveside service will be held at 1 o'clock, Saturday, December 19th, at Memorial Gardens of Columbia. All are welcome to attend; however, masks are required, and social distancing is enforced to maintain a safe environment for all. Shives Funeral Home, Trenholm Road Chapel, is assisting the family. For those unable to attend, a livestream may be viewed by visiting Mr. Belk's tribute page at ShivesFuneralHome.com.

The family would like to thank Connie and her son, Rudy, who live right across the street from him. Heyward was always looking out the picture window for them. They were wonderful neighbors, who made sure his yard was done when he wasn’t able to do it and always were taking food to him. Connie was such a blessing to Heyward and to all his family during his illness. The family would also like to thank Marcy Caulder, his hospice nurse, for her compassion and care for him in his last few days.
