Since his retirement from the railway in 1975, Cliff was able to enjoy his avid interests in reading, history, economics, animals and gardening. He displayed a delightful sense of humor, which combined with his known traits of honesty, loyalty and dependability, made him an excellent companion. Cliff was proud of his achievements in life but he maintained a modest front and preferred instead to share the experiences and energies of his family. He was a longtime member of Southminster United Church and enjoyed his years in the Masonic Lodge. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends.
