Cliff worked for Clean Harbors until his death.  He was a proud and active member of the Elks Lodge 981.  His favorite pastime was joking with everyone and sharing food and drinks with family.  He loved having anyone and everyone over for holidays and pool parties.  He truly enjoyed the company of those he surrounded himself with. He found joy in seeing his grandchildren play sports and of course spoiling them rotten! There were no rules at papa’s house and definitely no crying in America!  He will forever be missed by his friends and family!
