    I worked with Cliff for years and I think he had more interesting stories than Mark Twain. He squeezed out of life all there was to get. Threaten to tear your head off one minute then want you to play cards an hour later. I miss him and so many others we worked with.

  2. Clifford was a Legend, and my prayers go up in Heaven with him.

  3. BILL BARKER says:

    One of the toughest hardest hitting guys I knew. He apparently lived life as he wanted and I’m proud to have known him

    To the loving Daughter,Family & Friends, may I offer my sympathy in your painful loss of Jean. Please take comfort in these Verses: Psalms34:18 “JEHOVAH IS NEAR TO THOSE THAT ARE BROKEN AT HEART AND THOSE WHO ARE CRUSHED IN SPIRIT HE SAVES”
