I worked with Cliff at Methodist and he was a truly, genuine person. He was a joy to work with and he and I had fun times organizing the United Way fund raising for Medical Imaging. My sincere sympathy goes out to Pam and all of his loved ones. Thoughts and prayers to you all.

Cliff and I worked together at the Diagnostic and Research Center MMCI. We had many great times together. The lab, Patient Registration, Pre-Admit Nurses and all of the Radiographers enjoyed many good times together. There was decorating and group potlucks that was enjoyed by all. Cliff was one of the greatest assets. He was a hard worker and at the same time a happy guy making the best of any situation. His patients were always well taken care of. His respect for his fellow co-workers was always part of his personality day after day.
I was so very sad to hear about Cliff.
Our sincere condolences to Pam, Zach, Ryan, Jake and Sara in the passing of a very special guy. We felt privileged to have known Cliff. Our prayers are with you and your families as you bid your loved one good night.
Cliff, let those far winds carry your sails home.
RIP, friend.

So sorry for the loss of Cliff. I worked with him at Methodist for over 20 years. He was an excellent x-ray tech and he would always be patient and supportive whenever I had to repair his imaging equipment. He always had a great attitude and bright personality. I am so blessed that God put him into my life. May God give comfort to Pam and family. May Cliff rest in peace with our Father in Heaven.
