Charlene, Penny, Robin, Terry and Families - our thoughts are with you.
I have many great memories of Cliff when we were neighbours growing up. Like the time Robin and I got caught breaking eggs in the hen house - I can still see Cliff’s giant silhouette in the doorway !
As Always
Love

Always a smile a or wave if you passed him walking. Loved his stories and how much family and this community meant to him. But nothing compared to the love of his life - Helen, they had something truly special there.

I remember seeing him sitting in his truck at the grocery store, while Helen was shopping - I asked him why he didn't go in. "I'm safer here he said - that way I'm not in her way and I can't get into trouble!". Loved his sense of humour!

I'm sure they are dancing once again with a light step - Happy Trails Cliff.

It is with great sadness that I say goodbye to my good friend Cliff. Our families shared many good times together playing cards, going by bus to casinos and in recent years talking together on the phone where Cliff would share the latest events in the Bengough area. Were it not for the weather I would have come to to share my respects. Fess Albers
