From Virginia Beach to greens of Carolina Cliff was always the man. The golf trips were important to so many people over the years but nothing was more important to Cliff than family and friends. Our deepest condolences to the Creek Family.

I have always thought you were one of the happiest persons I've known.
When you started coming to our house when you came to San Diego we all looked forward to your visits. I was around 13 then. We would stay up late watching TV and eating bologna sandwiches. After you & Terri came to Ca. It was always fun when the whole family came to Mom & Dad's house for Christmas.. So many wonderful memories. The sadness I feel can't compare to what your family is feeling. You are leaving a big footprint behind that will never be filled. I will miss your "HI CUZ" when you would call. I know there are plenty of friends & family that welcomed you in heaven and love you., but you are leaving behind so many that love you and made our world just that much better.. God Bless you Skip and Terri, Tina, Tammy & Corey.

What can I say about my Pop. Well that is a lot, he was a amazing father, a superman, he could build anything, fix anything including my broken bones, always singing and dancing and laughing he was the kind of dad that, books are written about. Pop could walk into the room yelling Jim, Jim I have a question, now this question could be just bring up the sheep in the rain, or hill sheep, or even rakes whatever the subject was we would start to laugh and then have to talk about it again like it was new. It is safe to say I got my sense of humor from him. There will never be another person to even come close to filling the void he has left in this world. Until we all are able to be joined again, I am so grateful to have had the honor of being your daughter, that is a title I will treasure. I do know Heaven got a whole lot brighter, and I am sure you are telling everyone your stories, and arranging a T-time as we speak.

I love you till we see each other again,

Frank and I are so shaken by Uncle Cliff's passing! He was so loved by everyone and will never be forgotten. They say we all leave memories behind for our loved ones.... luckily we have many! With our Zdon families "gift of gab", we will continue to talk about him and keep his memory alive for decades to come! I will think of him every time I eat popcorn, and Frank will toast to him with every nightcap! He, Dad, Jimmy, Sherry and more are definitely enjoying a Polish Feast up there, for sure !

My Prayers and Condolences to the Creek Family on Cliff's passing. I was saddened to hear the news. I knew Cliff from the AMSEC days and became a regular participant, once I found out about the annual Cliff Creek Golf Classic. I always looked forward to the 4-day 36-holes-a-day marathon every April, particularly the camaraderie between the "Old Guard" and the "Newbees". I was usually able to play at least one round with Cliff and fun was had by all throughout the event rain or shine. I was never quite sure how Cliff always managed to score well with his..."unique" golf swing..., but he always seemed to be able to get that critical birdie when a "skin" was involved! Somehow, I suspect he is already getting a 4-some together as we speak.

Cliff was a great guy on and off the course and will be greatly missed.
