May 21, 1949 – August 28, 2019

Cliff passed away in his sleep, at the age of 70 years, after a lengthy stay in hospital and a losing fight with pneumonia. Cliff was born in Grande Prairie and spent his early years in Wembley and then in Edmonton. After his marriage to Earla in 1972 they moved from Edmonton to Stony Plain to Vauxhall to Redwater.

Cliff leaves to cherish his memory, his wife, Earla (nee Carefoot); son and daughter-in-law, Jeffrey and Kelly; his precious granddaughter, Tayten; as well as his sister, Alice ; sister-in law, Heather; and a huge array of extended family and friends. He was predeceased by his father, Earl; his mother and step-father, Mary and Nik Lautner; and his two brothers, Gordon and Kennith.

It can’t be said that Cliff had an easy life but he did enjoy it. A trucking accident when he was 40 changed the direction of his life, but it didn’t stop him from appreciating his favorite hobby of fishing and sharing fishing stories with his friends.

Cliff’s family would like to express a very special thank you to all the staff at the Redwater Health Centre who made his stay there so comfortable.
