Clif was one of my favorite cousins. There were three close together all born in 1931 and grew up together in the Aubrey, Pilot Point area and all graduated High School in Pilot Point.
We had many good times together and I will miss them greatly. May the Good Lord receive him into his Loving Eternity and send peace and comfort to his family.

We will miss seeing Mr. Cliff working in his beautiful yard. He was our neighbor for twenty-years! He would always wave when we passed by his house. Rest in peace.

Cliff was my neighbor for over 34 years. Always the gentleman and hard worker. Always kept his yard and home immaculate. Soft spoken exceptional gentleman generous, and always a pleasure. Best wishes to the family.
