I have know Cliff for over 10 years, Met him thru Marie at work. He joined our lunch group and became one of us. Cliff had a funny sense of humor and when he had an opinion he stuck to it. We have a dinner group that meets every other month and he came to it. We had great times and I considered him a great friend. My husband and I are going to really miss him a lot. God Bless You in heaven Cliff and we will meet again one day.

I worked with Cliff at Florida Blue as his supervisor for several years and he was an amazing person. Cliff was always so helpful and he loved inspiring quotes. Cliff had a great sense of humor and would always put an intellectual twist on conversations. I will always think of Cliff during the holidays and the leg lamp he would decorate his desk with. Cliff will truly be missed.
