If you were lucky enough to know Cliff, then you’ve had A LOT of laughs. He was goofy and silly, and loved to rough house and do cool ninja tricks! He loved playing games with his family, and Sunday was his favorite day of the week because it was family day! Cliff was a provider and a protector. He made sure his family was taken care of no matter his sacrifice. We were blessed to have him for the short time here on earth. His passion to throw himself into whatever interests his children had was beautiful! He mastered everything he did, just being good didn’t cut it. This world was robbed of his presence and he will forever be cherished!

There will be a memorial in his honor at 4:00 p.m. Friday, February 23, at The Cross Church lower level, 5300 Winchester Road, with a dinner immediately following.

Memorials can be made out to his wife and children.
