I have many memories of Ciff, but most of all he was one in a million. He was always by my side in the good times but what really is special was how he would be there for the bad times. Cliff helped me through some of the rough times and always made me look at the bright side. He became part of my family, enjoying vacations at the Cape, comedy shows with my siblings and holiday meals. We will never, ever forget his great smile and wonderful attitude. I will dearly miss you my friend and so will Rich, Tyler and Brian. I know your with the love of your life now and may you both Rest In Peace.😘

I worked with Cliff at PW for many years, in EH, then MT. He was such a nice guy. A true nice guy. He was always kind, easy to work with. We had a nice retirement party for him when he retired. A few of us went outside to wave to him when he was leaving. I remember him leaving in his VW with The Beach Boys playing. He was a great man. My condolences to his family.
