    As many of you know my husband, Gary Clark aka Optimus Scourge, passed away recently. I am happy to report that through the generous actions of this board site's Admins and it's members I have been able to make arrangements for Gary's resting place. Without YOU this wouldn't have been able to happen and I am eternally thankful that I have friends like you.

    Gary loved this community and everyone that he met. As I look over the thousands of pictures taken over the years it is obvious that his happiest times were the ones spent at conventions, meetups, and various toy shows he and I attended. This was a love that we both shared and it breaks my heart to have to continue through life without him.

    Words cannot describe how grateful I am for all the support emotionally, financially, and physically I have received during this difficult time.

    Special thanks go to first and foremost Alex "Tony" of TFW for allowing the word of my need be spread, I am forever in your debt. Chris "Kickback" for being my shoulder to cry on, I wish you the best in life. Curt "Motor Master", Sherry, and Shane "BigBadBoomBox" (all TFW members) I am honored to have you three in my life, one of the few people Gary and I trusted and could depend on. Robert "Guskd", you took a weight off me and for once in my life I believed everything would be alright because you told me it would be.

    There are so many people I need to thank, some of which I don't even know your real names. Thank you thank you thank you. When I say you guys are family I truly mean it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    A Meetup/Birthday celebration for Gary will be held 11/20 in North East Philly. Details can be found on the Philly meetup page under Conventions and Get togethers on TFW http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-conventions-get-togethers/121395-philly-meet-up-130.html.

    I never really knew the guy, but he sounds like a great person and a true fan. May he rest in peace.

    I believe Optimus Primal said it best with... the greatest of Cybertron.

    Really makes me wish I had something better to say, but from one Gary Optimus to another, you know. :)

    I can't say I remember him. I see a lot of people on these boards and it's hard to keep track of all of them. Regardless, I'm very sorry about your loss. Too young to be taken so early. My condolences to you and his family.

    this may seem like an inconsiderate question but may I ask what happened?
    He looks so young.
    I have recently been diagnosed with cancer at the age of 34 (well 33 I just turned 34)
    so naturally I am scared out of my mind.
    Like I said I don't mean to be inconsiderate, but if anyone knows?
    Again I wish my condolences. I'm so sorry.
