Condolence & Memory Journal

I worked with Cliff on the 3-11 shift from 1983-1990. I remember well how he talked to the new kids in maintenance as he worked, teaching and showing them how to become craftsmen. He was a professional and the people he influenced then are doing the same thing for the new generation today.

I worked with Cliff on the backshift at the power plant. Cliff was one of the smartest and most talented men I've ever known. He taught me a lot of things over the years and some of them weren't bad! I always enjoyed the nights when I'd be put with Cliff to work, I'll miss him.

I always think of Uncle Clifford when I drive past horses. I still remember the first time I spent the night at his farm. The smells were all new to a city boy. First and only time I was stepped on by a horse.
