Cliff was a lifelong Cubs fan. He enjoyed sharing jokes, finding new places to eat and playing cards. Cliff liked to be at home enjoying the peacefulness of the pond where he spent hours watching the water and wildlife.
Cliff was a U.S. Army veteran where he served as a tank driver.
Those close to him knew they could always count on him if they needed a helping hand.
Cliff was preceded in death by his wife Retta Faye, his parents, brothers Walter, Bob, George, Emil, and a sister Hazel Harding.
