He married Linda Lindholm and to this union they were blessed with two children, Scott and Jodi. The couple later divorced. On Sept. 2, 1972, Cliff was united in marriage to Julie Lundquist in Muntain Iron. They were blessed with three children, Becky, Clint and Clayton. Cliff enjoyed spending time with his family, Sunday night patio potlucks, riding his Harley, shooting pool, playing ping-pong, playing cards and his favorite pastime — enjoying every moment with his grandchildren.

Cliff was a hard-working man — a trait he passed on to his children. He has had many friends throughout his life. His knowledge and love of ’50s and ’60s music, big smile, loyalty, honesty, huge heart and sense of humor is evident to all who have known him. And now, he lives on in the lives that he has touched.
