Days of Our Lives' John Clarke (Mickey Horton) has passed away--->>
It is with great sadness in our hearts that we report the passing of Days of Our Lives actor, John Clarke. Clarke is an original cast member of the NBC daytime who joined the show in 1965 as Mickey Horton. He left the show 39 years later in 2004 when he retired early due to health concerns.
Reports say Clarke passed away from complications of pneumonia on October 16, in Laguna Beach. Clarke also suffered a stroke in 2007 and had been in declining health for the last few years.
Clarke is survived by his wife Patty, his children Joshua and Melinda and his grandchildren, Catherine Grace, Natasha and Jacob.
The family asks that donations be made to the Heidi Clarke Scholarship Fund at California Institute of the Arts, 24700 McBean Parkway, Valencia, CA 91355-2340.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this sad time.
