I am so sorry to hear of Cliff’s passing. I very much enjoyed our conversations. He usually did more talking than listening though! His infectious laughter will be missed. Rest easy, Cliff.

I just want to say my Uncle Cliff could fill a room with laughter and fun. He loved company and hated to be alone. He told you his opinion of how it should be wether you wanted it or not. He got me to do fun things even when I thought I was to busy to do it. Uncle Cliff always checked on me and was truly concerned about my family. We fished together, hunted some turkeys, drank some , and talked BS. He was an awesome story teller! He was a great presence in my life! I loved him and will miss him dearly.
