  1. Jim Melcher says:

    Always a gentleman, an amazing example to us all of how to live a beautiful life. I like to tell people that he was devoted to his family, god and his country. But his family was the most important part of his life. Cliff you will be missed!

  2. Mary Evan says:

    Cliff was much loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. I can almost hear my dad and Cliff as well as the other Evan and Frankus siblings reminiscing about growing up together. Peace, love, hugs and many blessings to all.

  3. Janet E. Brandt says:

    How did I not know Cliff played cribbage? I would have liked to test my skills in a game with him. Cliff was a quiet, gentle man who always
    expressed interest in whoever he met and usually had a humorous comment to set everyone laughing. We’ll miss you, Cliff.
