Clifford Thomas Connor, 49 of Fort Worth, died unexpectedly at 6:00 a.m., Saturday, Feb 16, 2019, from congested Heat Failure. Clifford was born on July 29, 1969, in El Paso Texas. He is survived by his mother and father, Jacquelyn and Terrance Connor; two sisters Maureen and Amanda; Brother-in-law Lenny, nieces Mellisa and Alayna; nephews Tyler, Chris, Ethan, and Adam; Aunts Ellie, Cherry, Gigi, Gail, and Carolyn, uncles, Doug, Dave, Eddie. He also leaves several cousins, Jose, Mark, Chuck, Danny, Crystal, Robin, Jeremy, Eddie Jr. Numerous friends, and extended family members. He grew up in Europe where his parents were employed. In 1987 he stepped out on his own and in 1989 he joined the Navy and served on the USS Enterprise to 1992.

Cliff had many health-related challenges in his life but he didn't let them interfere with his truly outstanding support for family and friends to help them improve their quality of life.

At the time of his passing, he was working for the Presbyterian Night Shelter Clean Slate as a leader on the off-site commercial litter contract in Tarrant County. He was a fun loving individual who could be counted on to get the job done. God bless him as he starts his new journey on that level of time from whose bourne no traveler returns.

Inspire means to excite, encourage, or breathe life into.  Cliff that's what you did for me. You inspired me to live life to the fullest... That I can overcome anything. I watched you overcome so much in such a short time. You have touched so many people. Thank you for moving to Texas and sharing yourself with me. This past few months have been amazing and I am proud of you. This is not good bye... Till next time. Love Robin

Well. What can I say??? First of all, I'm missing you too much man. But it's not only me, but everyone here at the job. The A-Team (your team, the one YOU put together) is still going but without you is definitely not as fun as it was. I still try to throw in a few jokes like the ones you did but brother, IT'S NOT THE SAME.
On a very personal level I wanna thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your right hand man, your buddy, your friend. Thanks for all those topics we talked about life, recovery and how to deal with unexpected situations. All of them are today my fuel to keep going and moving forward against all odds, against statistics, against the wrong way that the majority (sadly but true) think about people who make mistakes. There's hope, there's faith. YOU PROVED ME THAT. We proved and still prove them wrong. Today you may be gone but I personally tell you, I WON'T FORGET YOU. You are an example of how to be a good person, a real human being who cares for others. To give back what was freely given to us, to pay it forward.
One last thing. Thanks for serving this country, your people. And even that I don't believe in war, that I'm not pro military, I do believe in people and some of the reasons why they join the armed forces and I'm pretty sure (because I met you and got to know you) that probably your main reason to join the NAVY was to serve, to help, to defend the defenseless, because that was your nature, a real guy who loved to give a helping hand and by doing that you showed me what was really important in life. I love you man and since I believe you are reading this somehow, let me let you know that you earned a place in my heart, that you now have a puertorican brother.
Rest In Power and Peace my dear friend, my brother.
Everytime "Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd plays on my speakers I'll be thinking of you. Farewell, Godspeed and see you on the other side sooner or later. THANK YOU!!! One love Cliff.

I didn’t know Cliff for very long but I will say he always kept me laughing. From funny and inappropriate Facebook messages to going Black Friday shopping i had fun when you were involved. I know you struggled in the past and I am proud that you were able to get things sorted. I am glad to have known you and I hope you are now at piece.

My dear buddy, Cliff;
You asked me to never forget you. You know that I never will. I have loved you like a brother since 1985. We had so many good memories...through thick and thin...good and bad. We always had each others’ backs; even when times got tough. You were constantly encouraging of me. And, as I would say, a “Big Teddy Bear Sweetheart.” Your recent words to me will never be forgotten. In the end, you were strong. You were a fighter. You were amazing. Thank you for your many years of friendship. I will miss you dearly.
Yours in love and peace,
Steph (a.k.a. El Nase)
