Our beloved poster Clark?  I’ve always respected him, and regarded him as one of the fine ones.  

My sincerest to his people.  I always enjoyed him

Horrible news.

 

He was one of my favorite posters here and truly a gentleman.

I always thought of Clark Gable when I read his avatar. Or was that his real name too. I had no idea of his authored articles on Times and Seasons. I'll do some reading. He was a great contributor on this discussion board. I wonder what happened. His last article was published on Aug. 30th, may he RIP. :(

If this is true it's extremely sad news. I was always interested to see what Clark thought.

:cray:- that's so sad.  Had he given any indication in a post?  His contributions were so intelligent and measured.  I'll miss him.

That is so incredibly sad.  He was one of my favorites, and I can only image how difficult it is for his family.  Didn't he have a small child with significant health injuries too?  His poor wife.

This is indeed a shock. He was a thoughtful and intelligent person and had in my view become a fixture here. 

I respect his courage to post under his real name.

Is it appropriate to post the funeral arrangements here for those in Utah? This was such sad news and his poor wife and children.

I'll be there to pay my respects to a brilliant scholar, who was always so thoughtful.  Learned a lot from him.  Seems he was posting here right up to the very end.

ETA:  Just realized that is my old Stake Center -- Provo Stake.  We probably attended Stake Conf there a number of times in the same room, and never realized it.

Always thoughtful posts.  He has been a distinctively well informed voice on the bloggernacle for many years.  But too young for such news.  He will be missed.

It is appropriate.

Damn. 

This is the not so good part of having friends.

Appropriate or not, one must be aware of security for his family, posting to such a vast audience about when his home will unoccupied.

These are things we have to think about in California.  Of course it is up to the family, but I would get family permission before publishing it here for this reason

True tragedy.  Now I will have to meet him on the other side.  ;)  I knew he was ill.

It was already posted publicly, with his wife tagged.

So sad- he will be sorely missed.  We sparred a lot but it was always in the sphere of friendship, and he was a great student of philosophy especially its history.  He had no equal in that area I think.
