Kaye said Clark's rigorous dedication to his work was partially to blame for the stroke Clark suffered in 2004.
“The morning he got up with the symptoms of the stroke and some numbness, his wife wanted to take him right to the hospital,” Kaye said. “His response was, ‘I can't, because I've got an interview on the phone with a disc jockey.' So, he waited around too long to go to the doctor and see about his stroke. The severity of it probably could have been much less, had he have gone on.
“But that's just the kind of guy he was. He was totally dedicated to the business. His work ethic was unbelievable.”
