Clifford was a man with a full-size heart. He loved animals and children as he was one himself. He retired as an Electrician in the mines. But his social need took him to sharing his time at Lowes. He had a strange sense of humor, but laughter is what he loved to do the most. Clifford kept you on your toes, as you never knew what he was going to say or do. Learned late in life the importance of the adventure and was willing to try and go anywhere. He became quite the outdoorsman, who loved to fish, hunt, take in the fresh air and sit by a fire.
