Cliff was a member of the United State Army. He served during the Korean War. While in Korea, he worked with the Army Corp of Engineers. After returning stateside, Cliff remained part of the Army National Guard for several years. In his youth, Cliff loved playing football. If you were to ask him which football team was his favorite, he would always say LSU. He made a career as an insurance salesman. Cliff also enjoyed taking care of his many rental properties after he retired. He was married to Betty Johnson for almost 68 years. Cliff never met a stranger. He could carry on a conversation with just about anyone. After losing his beloved wife in 2020, he made a community of friends at The Chateaus at the Montclair in Shreveport.
