Ladies & Gents,

It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to tell you, that just a short time ago I was informed that John had been found deceased at home, yesterday Sunday 10th. Coming such a short time after Sheila's death, this is just devastating to both his family and his friends.

I am in direct contact with his brother and will of course let you know when I have any further details.

RIP John my friend.

This is a very sad news.
Our community has lost a valuable member.
John, I hope wherever you are you found Sheila.
You will always remain in our thoughts.
All my deepest condolences to the family of John.

I'm shocked. That was sudden. He posted 9 Nov 2013, 21:16:00 UTC the last post, and nothing in that post gave any indication that he wasn't OK.

RIP John, you will be missed by many.
Too much hormone treated meat.
Too much Monsanto veggies.
Too old and outdated constitution.
A crazy problem, as you Yanks use to say......

There is no God, and God never existed.

That is sad news, Chris. I interacted with John now and then, and the impression he left was that of a thoughtful, caring, intelligent and humorous family man. His impish Robin Hood avatar was instantly recognisable in several BOINC forums. I will miss him. RIP, John Clark.

I am so sorry to hear this. Please sent my wishes to his family. I was so shocked to hear about the passing of his wife Sheila, and with his health issues I knew her loss would be very hard for him.

This is a sad day.
