R.I.P clacko

This is off topic, but I wanted to let Flyertalk members know that my father, Don Clark, also known as Clacko, passed away on December 18, 2013 of esophageal cancer. He spent many, many hours on Flyer Talk for over a decade and enjoyed figuring out mileage runs and helping others do the same.
Thank you for keeping him busy!
his daughter, carol

He spent many, many hours on Flyer Talk for over a decade and enjoyed figuring out mileage runs and deals on American Airlines and helping others do the same.

I never met your father in person but he fit in with the travel world of FT in an excellent way!
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I hope you and your family will find comfort from fond memories.
