Cliff’s greatest loves in life were his wife Bonnie, his children, grandchildren and his family, who he treasured beyond anything else. He was a devoted family man and a great friend to all.
Cliff loved helping others and worked in management for 35+ years until he retired in 2009. He was an avid sports fan. He loved sports from his youth and all throughout his life through his children, grandchildren, and most recently, his great grandchildren. He followed them all with pride and shared in each of their accomplishments. He enjoyed family gatherings, taking his grandkids on adventures, traveling, family vacations, the beach, golf, fishing and reading. Cliff served in the military, was an Army veteran and loved his country. He was a kind, honorable man who was always there to help anyone with whatever they needed. The world was blessed by having Cliff in it.
