Cliff was best known amongst his family and friends as a handyman who tackled any project - big or small.    A lover of classic country music, a good joke and string trick, card games and shuffleboard, being on the dance floor, and teaching those around him the game of Sequence.   If you were lucky, you were a proud recipient of his custom game board and popcorn sifter.   Cliff built a successful career with a grade three education, working in trucking, a gas station operation, commercial construction, before starting a local home building business.  He was a craftsman by trade who built a reputation on a honest days’s work and quality craftsmanship.
