Cliff was a simple man and lived by the phrase “make it last, wear it out, make do or do without”. He always wanted to do good for someone else. He was proud of working on the family farm being the 3rd generation to do so and he loved his Farmall B tractor. Cliff loved running his chainsaw, making great wine, and telling funny stories. His greatest enjoyment came from spending time with his family and friends.
