It is with GREAT sadness we say “Goodbye” to a wonderful Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather.
Predeceased by his mother Eva, his father Clifford and younger brother Larry.
He will be greatly missed by his wife of 30 years, Evelyn, his daughters Janet (Mark), Didre (Cod) his only son Bradley, his step- daughter’s Lisa, Linda, step-son Jim, his grandchildren Matthew, Aaron, Jamie and Danna, his great grandchildren Elijah,Salem, Austin, Zachary and Taylor, his brothers Jack, Ray (Merla), sister Sheila (Dale) and the many nieces, nephews and cousins he has left behind. He will also be missed by many friends both here and on the mainland.
Cliff was born and lived in Saskatoon Saskatchewan until he was old enough to join the armed forces. He moved between Belgium, France, Saskatoon and Germany. He then moved to the Comox Valley. He also worked locally as a bar tender where he got to know a lot of the younger adults. Cliff was also known as a pretty good softball player in his day and also coached minor hockey at the Glacier Garden arena. He moved to the lower mainland in the late seventies and was an insurance rep for many years. He and his wife moved back to the Comox Valley in 2014 to be closer to his family.
Cliff was a huge fan of Al Jolson, who was his favourite entertainer and just before he passed, his daughter found an array of Al Jolson songs on her phone and played them for him….his eye’s lite up …the most fitting way for him to pass.

The family asked in lieu of flower’s to make a donation to your favourite charity.
April Shower’s may come your way
They bring the flower’s that bloom in May
So if it’s raining, have no regret’s
Because it isn’t raining rain you know….it’s raining violet’s
And where you see cloud’s upon a hills
You soon will see crowd’s of daffodils
So keep on looking for a blue bird
and list’ning for his song
Whenever April shower’s come along.
I’ll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I’ll be looking at the moon
But I’ll be seeing you
We will miss you and NEVER forget.
Always and forever our LOVE.
