Rodney Austin berichtete auf der comet mailing list, dass Michael Clark im Alter von 77 Jahren verstorben ist. Er hatte Krebs und wohl als Folge mehrere Schlaganfälle.

Im Original:
Dear All.
It is with great sadness that I have to inform everyone that Michael Clark (71P/Clark) passed away in Melbourne, Australia where he and his wife have lived for the past two years.
Following a diagnosis of cancer, he has also suffered a series of strokes, and it was the most recent that has taken him from us. He was 77 years old.
Mike and I have known one another, have been great friends for 50 years, and worked together at the Mt John University Observatory during the 1970s. It was from Mt John that he discovered his comet while operating the Bamberg Patrol Cameras in 1973.
With sadness
Rodney R.D.Austin
