Clifton Axtell, a beautiful, bright ball of energy, came into this world on September 29th, 1982 in Plano, Texas. He was a son, brother, husband, father, nephew, uncle and grandson. Cliff loved his family deeply. He departed this earth on March 5th, 2023 and is profoundly missed by all who love him.
Cliff married Megan McKnight on March 5th, 2016. He worked as a land specialist for Veritas Commercial Properties in Austin, Texas where he was known for his innovative strategies in commercial real estate. Cliff was in his senior year at Harvard Extension School, where he made the Dean's list each semester. He attended Southwest Bible Church and was active in Celebrate Recovery where he led worship for three years.
We will miss his compassion, wit, kindness, and capacity to capture beauty and truth in his art. He loved writing and playing music. Cliff had the ability to energize the room with his fierce intellect and creativity.
He is survived by his wife Megan Axtell, children Elliot Anderson and Ava Grace Axtell, parents Calvin and Mollie Axtell, sister Brooke Axtell, brother Luke Axtell, sister-in-law Monica Axtell, niece Ashlynn Axtell, nephew Ryder Axtell, and grandparents Kenneth and Patti O'Meara. He is also survived by numerous heartbroken cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.
