Cliff was a member of Souls Harbor Church where he dearly loved to sing praise, and worship his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with his wife and church family.
He was a proud Vietnam veteran where he had served his country. He spoke of the tragedy of losing a buddy in a foxhole. While there he was awarded several medals for his service.
He worked as a machinist most of his working years.
He loved to play golf with his friends on the church league where his pastor was one of his best partners. He was on a bowling league in Houston before moving to the Cabool bowling league where he thoroughly enjoyed every moment. He was a faithful bowler and never wanted to miss a game.

He was dearly loved by all who knew him. He will be sadly missed and forever in their hearts.
