Oh No... didn't realize that this was the John Clark with the Robin Hood avatar until today. I feel horrible for not commenting.

Rest In Peace, good sir. You shall always be remembered.

May I suggest that the project's next new server be named john in his honor?

"Curmudgeon" has been suggested as well.

I didn't know John well, but we both got sick around the same time and he was a great help to me with his humor, and by his sharing of experience and concern with me. He also was able to convey his hope for me. I took some of his obvious strength in my own struggle to prevail and come back to health and life. I like others was very happy with his recovery from that terrible illness.
Both myself and my wife were deeply saddened by the passing of his dear wife, and we were saddened and shocked to hear of his passing so soon after. We will not see their like in this life, but I do take solace in the sure knowledge that some day we will find each other again.
Farewell my friends, our world was a better place because of you.

When John lost his wife it made me so sad and when he died so soon after it just broke my heart. RIP my friend.

I found this on someone's wall in Facebook a day or so after Christmas. I posted it on his wall, and got a good response. I'd like to share it before this thread withers into obscurity...

Hello, I am not a crier -- but must say reading this thread has brought a tear to my eyes.

I interacted with John across many BOINC projects and threads and always found him to be a kind and reasonable voice. He kept me from rant mode more than a few times and that is a very good thing.

He will be sorely missed.

Oh no :(

I'm clearly behind everyone else due to my own absence caused by illness, but this is very sad news indeed :(

Rest in Peace John.
