There are reports on Face book that Clark as passed. At the moment that is all I know. I don't know what will become of this site and obviously We need confirmation from his family. If it turns out to be true I hope the site continues on in his memory. At the moment I am just thinking of his Family.

EDIT 10-11-17

Although I have not reached out to any of his family there is an over whelming preponderance of evidence that Clark has indeed passed. I appears that he passed while scuba diving. I do not know the exact cause.

As many of you may know GeorgeB and myself were promoted by Clark to admin status around here and we have been quietly keeping tabs on things. for many years.

I have reached out to George and hope to talk to him about how to approach Clark's Family about this site and what are there plans for it (if any).

My first thought would be to keep it up and running as a memorial to Clark. I would be willing to take on the hosting costs and what not as I already host a number of sites so that is not an issue.

The 944 world has lost one of its most valued members. My deepest condolences to Clark's family.

Without Clark Fletcher, the Garage Shop Manual and these forums,I would have been lost trying to restore my cars - it never would have happened. I'm pretty sure nearly all 944 enthusiasts have a similar story to tell. Clark's love for 944's was shared by so many people.

Dean, you're right: the most fitting tribute and lasting memorial to Clark would be for this site and its repository of knowledge is to continue on.

If there's anything I can do, let me know. Again, my condolences to the family.

I appreciate you input and I would love to here from others. I am waiting a while before approaching the family about this as I don't what to be "that guy"

And the deed is done. With the help of Clark's Wife and Son I now have ownership of the site and will start the process of repairing it. First order of business was fixing the forum and that is now done.

The next thing was to make select forums public so you dont have to log on to see things in them and that is done

There will be more repair work but it is going to be a slow process.

All for now
