Cliff and Ada were parents of my daughter-in-law, Anita. We shared many holiday meals with the family, including Annette and Tom. These memories give me much pleasure.

Cliff was always kind and a real gentleman. We had mutual love for our grandson, Cole and enjoyed watching him mature.

My husband Ralph and I, offer our condolences, as we will remember Cliff and all the fun times spent together as a family.

I only knew both your parents from your Christmas parties & gatherings. They were the sweetest, most genuine people you’d ever want to meet! The kind of parents that everyone wished they had!!! I always enjoyed talking with both of them. I’m happy your dad is reunited with your mom, and working on their 69th year together! Love & prayers!

I enjoyed working with Cliff at Noxel on the shave cream line. Cliff was a great guy to work with. We had some good days on the golf course, we played some at Pine Ridge. Great memories. Be strong and stay safe.
