Dear uncle to many nieces, nephews, and great nieces and great nephews; and cousin to more than we can count. Dear friend of many, especially Elizabeth Pienta.

Cliff lived and worked in Chicago most of his life, with the exception of four years in thr Air Force when he was stationed at various bases in the continental United States.
