October 05, 1951 – June 21, 2010
On June 21st, 2010 Cliff lost his third battle with cancer, having beat the disease twice before, first in 2003 and again in 2004. The additional time allowed Cliff to watch his children, Amber and Chase mature into competent, capable adults, to share in the joy of the birth of his two grandchildren, Liam in 2004 and Logan in 2009, and to contribute to the design and construction of his and Trish’s home in paradise. He will be sadly missed by his friends and family. Cliff was predeceased by his father, two sisters, and his sister-in-law. He is survived by his mother, Juanita, his wife Trish, his daughter Amber (Shilo), his son Chase (Ashley), and his grandchildren Liam and Logan, his sister Lori, and his brothers Michael and Patrick, as well as his nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation in Cliff’s memory to either the BC Cancer Foundation, 3999 Royal Ave. Kelowna BC V1Y 5L3 or The Central Okanagan Hospice Association, #202-1456 St. Paul St. Kelowna BC V1Y 2E6. If Cliff could wish one thing for the people he cared for, it would be that they give up smoking.
