Cliff was born in Williams Lake and moved to Quesnel as a young child. He had 7 sisters and 2 brothers. Cliff worked for Tolko Lumber as a heavy equipment operator. On many occasions, Cliff expressed his love for operating equipment. He retired in the late ‘90s and kept busy with Pat’s “Honey Do List,” renovations, and helping others.
Cliff loved his family and spent many weekends and vacations camping and exploring nature and new things with his wife and children. He never hesitated trying or experiencing something at least once - he just needed to be invited to try it. Family and friends will miss his guitar and country music singing at family gatherings and camping trips. Cliff was a straight shooter – if he had something to say – he said it. His family and friends will sadly miss him. Cliff’s favourite expression was "Family comes First"
Cliff is lovingly remembered by:
Children: Jessica (Will), Melissa, Tricia (Dale), Jeremy (Teya),
Blaine (Vera), and Dean (Sharlene) Grandchildren: Parker, Tyler, Nyomi, Matthew, Tarin, Chad,
Cody, Josh, Jessi, and Piper

Miss Me But Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road
and the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free!
Miss me a little, but not for long,
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me, but let me go!
For this a journey we all must take,
And each must go alone;
It’s all a part of the Master’s plan
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know,
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,
Miss me, but let me go.
