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.

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.

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.

Thank you to all of you for your kind thoughts, I will pass them on to his family. Yes this has been a great shock for all of us, it's difficult to know what to say.

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.
