Cliff we have been neighbors for almost 19 years and we have always enjoyed you being next door to us. Memories of you coming over and hanging with us we will always treasure. Then when my son broke your window with a baseball, you were so kind and just laughed... Thank you for always being a bright smiling face to look over to. Anytime we were out BBQ-Ing you would pop out and say hi with a big smile! I always knew when you were home because you would be rocking out to your jams! We’re going to miss you Buddy!

My condolences to the Lewis/Retzer family. My parents, Harold and Betty Grenz, were friends with Ed and Ella and other Retzer family members. Cliff and Steve took me on a tour of San Francisco when I was visiting their family in the 1970's. One of the best days ever. It was, however, tough to keep up with those guys. Their legs were much longer than mine! Good memories.

Loved visiting with the Lewis' and laughing with Cliff. I'm so sorry we didn't keep in touch, although, over the years, he occasionally would stop at my parents place in Zillah for a visit. Sincerely, Doris Gill

Another memory of Cliffy and those 10,000 games: he always kept score-- with the tiniest writing ever! So much fun to see him at work 💕

Cliffy,
I have known you my whole life but it wasn’t until I got older that I really got to know you. Your love for family was quite evident. You were always there to listen or lend a hand. Words can not express how much you will be missed. Your goofiness and laughter was contagious and the life of every gathering. I will miss you at the table when we sit down to play 10,000, I will miss teasing you about your love of the 49ers, but most of all, I will just miss you!
Love you,
Heather

To Cliff Lewis family: Rodney and I have known Cliff for several years. He bowled at Eagle lanes and at Minda. He was on our team at one time. He always joked around. He could one up Rodney just about everytime they messed around! He would talk about his favorite movie : Ted! We will miss him so much! Always smiling. Bragging about his grandkids. He was an awesome bowler. Got the 7 and 10 pin one year! So sorry for your loss.

Clifford, I am so grateful I had the pleasure of meeting you at Steve and Carolyn’s wedding in 2000! From the first moment I met you, I knew you loved your family so much and all you wanted to do was to spend time with them.
I have countless memories of Retzer gatherings filled with love, laughter, food, alcohol, 10,000 games, pool time, golf, sports and just quality time spent with family!
You were always the protector! The Big Red Dog that would never let anything bad happen to us. You were a confidante to many of us. There to just listen when we needed that most.
I loved your passion for all San Francisco sports. The city has lost its biggest sports fan!
I will always appreciate you keeping me stocked with Vodka tonics on the day of my wedding. You sacrificed your family time to make sure I had all the food and drink I needed on that special day. And the fact that I let you wear a Forty Niner shirt to my wedding shoes how much I loved and appreciated you!
I’m so happy you are with Pat! You loved and missed her so much! Have fun with all the Retzer clan up there! Say hi and give them hugs!
I will miss you always! Love and hugs!

I am grateful for the time I had with you Cliffy. Thank your for being full of love and laughter. I will miss you. Miss you already. I will not forget how you could always liven up a party. You had such a big heart.
Just a few days ago we had spoken. You came out and decorated your car for Olivers birthday parade. Todd said you were laughing at yourself as you tried to place some cash in the birthday card. You said you were trying to place it just right so it would pop out from the Spiderman eyes. I remember as the parade of vehicles drove by laughing at you myself. You, with your red face and 49rs mask on. The mask was so small it barely covered your mouth and nose. But no one could mistake your smile as it reached your eyes. Later you and I texted. You were tickled with yourself. Pleased that you had chosen that card. The Spiderman card. You explained that you spent about 45 minutes in the toy department and couldn't pick out the right gift for Ollie. You settled on that card. You were so happy when you drove by to wave at the birthday boy and he was wearing a Spiderman mask. You had such a big, kind and caring heart Cliffy. You were so sweet. I will forever miss you. Thank you for your love and friendship. Thank you for bringing our family together.

Cliff was such a crazy, fun and caring person! I will miss him forever.
Thankfully he's with Pat, as well as many other family members, now.
Love to all from Auntie Kathie
