So sad to hear of Clambo's passing. He was a great guy one of the very best true to himself, friends and family. Quiet but still waters run deep. Sad that I am away and will not be able to attend his service. My condolences to his family.


Dear Andrea and family, I too am saddened with this news. Mark was a friend thru the years and I shared many sporting activities with him and others. I will miss his Cheshire Cat grin and companionship. He will be missed by many. I am not able to attend his services but will be there is spirit. Peace Out Clambo.
