Michael George Clark a.k.a. Chaos
1951 -2017

Passed away quite peacefully on Saturday, March 4, 2017, after a brief, but fierce battle with pneumonia and bacterial meningitis.
Mike was much loved, as son, brother, uncle, friend. His unconventional lifestyle illustrated his true character. He cared nothing for material gains, but cared deeply for his friends and family. He was known for his warm smile and his exuberance for life. A supremely talented musician, songwriter and painter, he devoted much of his time to these works. His creativity fed him, he had little use for food!
He is survived by his mother, Maxine, his brother Steve, three nieces, one nephew and countless friends. Many thanks to all who brought their love into the room in his final days.
Godspeed, Chaos. The world is a far richer place for having known you. May you finally get your colours right.
