He was a farmer, later a stone mason, and finally worked as a pipefitter helper at Polysar where he spent most of his working life. After retirement, Cliff volunteered with the work crews at Lambton United Church Center, travelled to be with family, tended his garden, and shared his rough carpenter skills including a couple of Habitat for Humanity builds which he really enjoyed. He was a life long member at Central United Church and participated in that community’s life in various ways. Thank you to the staff at Bluewater Health for their compassionate care.
