Ione, & Valerie,
I am saddened to hear about Cliff's passing. I heard through Facebook, where some friends also expressed their shock and sadness. Many of my memories of De Molay have Cliff somewhere nearby. I appreciated his acceptance, and leadership style. Our country needs more men like him! I trust that your love & memories of Cliff will comfort you through this time.

Cliff brought a lot of joy in my life. From high school thru my adult life he was the friend everyone should have. He was there for me during some troubling times of my life. Cliff was an outstanding member of DeMolay. His dedication to the members and the principles of the group was unparalleled.. He gave so much to help others and to bring joy in their lives. He was a friend who could sense when you needed a helping hand and never faltered to bring joy in your life. He never let anything get him down. He was the easiest person to share a story or laugh with. I was always amazed how people gravitated to Cliff and the good natured welcoming and thoughtful presence he had with everyone he met. I write this with much grief and can not express how much he will be missed. His compassion for others was visible with his friends and in his career. I am so grateful to have known Cliff and his wonderful wife and family. He will forever be in my memory.
