So sorry Susie about Cliff’s passing. You have our deepest sympathy from all our family. Love to you Bruce and Marilyn Bemis and family.

To Carolyn, my sympathy. May God supply all your needs as you lean on Him. We 'older' people hate change and we like life the way is 'was', so learning to live without him will be a challenge. To Amy, so sorry for your loss. It is hard to lose your dad no matter what our age is. Some day your current sadness that brings tears will, instead, bring a contented smile to your face. I share with the two of you my devotional's verse for the day: Philippians 4:7 ....and may the peace of God, which passes all understanding, keep your hearts and minds........ Linda Gephart Jones

In the short time I got to know Cliff I could tell he was a good man. I found in my mind that the advice he gave me which proved to correct of course....was modestly giving. I really could appreciate talking to him as I tried helping him with his new toy...his plasma cutting operation... and of course he had to enhance with his expertise. I will certainly miss getting to know him and he will be missed by all the people helped, which was many I'm certain!!

Cliff and I competed together at Camp Perry for many years. He taught me a lot in that time but most importantly he taught me how to have fun.
