Remembering: Michael David Clark

Outline regretfully announce the unexpected death of Michael David Clark, who passed away last 30 December 2022 at the age of 77.

Outline has shared the news of Michael David Clark’s passing on the 30 December 2022 at the age of 77.

Clark, Scottish by birth, arrived in Italy at the end of the 1960s as a sound engineer of a band. He fell in love with Italy, where he then decided to live and where he created his beloved family.

He always worked in the field of music, first as a DJ in the most iconic discos of the Riviera, and then as a music expert in one of the largest shops in Italy, Dimar in Rimini. A specialised journalist and correspondent for the most respected entertainment industry’s magazines, he also collaborated with many pro-audio manufacturers, including Outline.

“During the past 30 years, Mike was the most precious resource for our R&D and marcomms departments,” Michele Noselli of Outline stated. “A brilliant, generous and extremely reliable person, Mike translated intricate patent texts for us, those we go the most proud of, doing it with surgical precision, elaborating the texts and making them essentially clear, hence effective, thanks to his ability to ask the right questions to refine the whole work… and he never got tired of calling you five, six times a day, only to deliver a flawless piece. And we always counted on him! We are sincerely and profoundly grateful for this. Ciao Mike, thank you for everything. Have a safe journey.”

Clark is survived by his wife Daniela, daughter Virgina and two grandchildren, Gabriele and Giovanni. A funeral service took place on 2 January 2023, in the church of San Francesco inside the Rimini cemetery.
