Cliff was an avid collector and dealer often found at various car, beer, marble shows, and estate sales. He was an excellent fisherman and had a talent for restoring toys, cars, boats, and just about anything. His real joy came from relationships with family and friends, there was always a story and some humor. Cliff was a great friend to many people and animals.
