To all of Clifford's family, especially Myra, I am so very sorry for your loss.
I remember, a touching true story Cliff had shared during a church dinner, as well as a very moving testimony that had me in tears. More than once, Cliff very humbly shared personal stories for many to hear, to show what God can do, and how great, the forgiveness of the Lord really is, & anyone can obtain that same forgiveness, just have to ask.
Thank you Cliff

Angie and Family, I am soo sorry for your loss, and wish I could take some of your pain. I didn't know Clifford, but have heard many good things about him. I'm sure his grand-daughters are extremely happy to see him once again, so there's probably lots of celebrating going on in Heaven. May you find peace and comfort in the days ahead! Love, Sheila

Clifford was my mentor as a color mixer at Imperial. He was a great teacher and role model for me, as well as being a hard worker, and good-natured person. He paved the way for me to become the color mixer I became at Imperial. I remember always liking the smell of his pipe in the break room at work. I am sorry for your loss, but know he went to a better place, and is celebrating with those who went ahead of him.

My thoughts and prayers to Clifford's family. I always enjoyed working with Clifford at Imperial. He was a real family man and a caring person who you could talk to.
He installed my first snowplow on my truck with much of it being fabricated as he went. He was a very talented welder. He is one that I will always remember from Imperial.
Clifford, may you rest in peace and may your family know you are watching over them.
