  1. I am so sorry for your loss.
    Although he lived on another street, in Roswell, he was a Davidson Dr. member, via Tommy Sabo.
    We all loved him.
    He would come and park his scooter (with keys in) and I would take off on it. He learned to take them out fast. Yes, we loved him. Wonderful and fun memories.

  2. As we heard of Cliff’s passing, it brought a whole host of wonderful memories to us. Your entire family is so dear to our hearts.
    Love and prayers,

  4. Cathy and your family,
    I am proud and honored to have known Cliff. He was my quick witted friend with whom I shared all too short a time. I pray that our Lord will give healing, comfort and peace to you and your family.

  5. on behalf of the staff and personnel at perfex energy consultants inc. we want to tell the friends and family what a good friend
    cliff was to us. He will truly be missed.

  6. Cathy and family-I worked with Cliff for the last 34 years, he always had my back and was my go-to guy for problems. I was going to pay my respects in person but the winter storm prevents travel today. God bless you all.

  7. Cathy and Family — we grieve for your loss. Cliff has been a great friend to me for over 55 years. I always loved his sense of humor, his phraseology in his short comebacks, and mostly his genuine concern for all. He loved you and the girls so very much. The world has suffered a loss.

  8. Cathy,Glynn and I were so sad to hear about Clifford. We enjoy our memories of spending time with the group in Pampa. Cliff always made everything more fun. We are praying for all of you. We love all of you.

  10. Cathy, we are so sorry to hear about Cliff. We are out of town and won’t be back until Jan. 3. Cliff was always one of our favorite people. We cherish the memories of our trips with y’all. I will never forget the time I asked him if he wanted to go to Oklahoma City to see the Eagles. His response was “do what”! I have laughed about that for years. We will keep your family in our prayers. Let us know if we can help in any way. Love, Shawn & Lisa.
