Devoted father of Pat (Kate), Tim (Rachel) and Kelly (Doug). Loving grandfather of Emily, Shawna, Alex and Jesse. Survived by siblings Esther (the late Casey) Sagan, Oscar (Marg) Schill, Ralph (the late Betty) Schill, Mary (the late Cos) Schiebel and many nieces and nephews.

A passionate farmer, Clifford was steadfast with his family, values and endeavors. He loved his family dearly and all their wonderful gatherings, especially at Christmas and summers at Straggle Lake.
He never missed a beat with his sharp wit. While he enjoyed reading a good western, he also had many adventures snowmobiling with family and friends or travelling with Geraldine.
Clifford was a dedicated chartered member of the Linwood Lions Club for 39 years and an usher at St. Joseph’s RC Church, Macton for 51 years. He was a wonderful and kind soul who will be greatly missed.
