Clifford was born and raised in Little Current. He moved to Lively and worked for Inco for 31.5 years, as an underground maintenance mechanic at Creighton Mine, retiring in 1991. Clifford was a very talented man, building and renovating his four homes. He was happiest outdoors when he was fishing, gardening, boating and at his camp. He also enjoyed art, sharing stories, telling jokes and training his many dogs to do tricks. Rested at the Island Funeral Home. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a private family service has been held. Cremation has taken place with burial at Mountainview Cemetery at a later date.
