Michael R. Clark, age 59, died January 20, 2012 in Tallahassee after a short illness.

He is survived by his loving wife of 28 years, Lorraine, and his most favored gray feline friends, Simon and Shelby.

He was an avid orchid hobbyist. He was well known to local garden clubs and plant nurseries for his lectures on growing orchids. He was a member of the Tallahassee Orchid Society. Michael earned degrees from the University of Florida and Florida Atlantic University with additional studies at Florida State University in geology. He had worked both in the private and public sector in environmental sciences. He was a professional geologist and vice president of CS& K Associates, Inc., forming the company with his wife, Lorraine, in September 2001. He is grateful for the long professional association and friendship with Porter-C. Knowles. He was one of six siblings of Louis and Beatrice Clark and grew up in Jacksonville.

His surviving family members are Roger and Brenda Clark, Becky and Michael Whitehill, Timothy and Teresa Clark, Linda Sturman, Jeffrey and Beth Clark and their extended families; Myron and Janet Trimpe, his uncle and aunt.

His family wished to thank his close friends and neighbors, Linda and David Kuhn, for their caring and loving support.
