I'm so sad to hear of Cliff's passing. He was a funny guy. My family had season tickets to the Binghamton Mets for several seasons and sat near him. Those were some great times. We sometimes chatted about history and about his Civil War roundtable activities. It was his influence that led me to attend a few of the Civil war roundtable events in Manhattan. He'll be missed.

Wonderful man who brought laughter and smiles each time he communicated. Like Leslie, grew fond of Cliff at Binghamton Mets games, and he kept me laughing after moving away through his Facebook posts. Godspeed friend!!

Cliff was one of my best friends and I am so heartbroken over his passing. Everything from our yearly birthday dinners, karaoke nights, breakfasts and our chats, I cherish those memories and I will never forget them. I'll see you someday on the other side.

We are devastated over our loss of Cliff. He will be missed terribly.He was a kind, caring person. He loved his facebook friends and wasn't shy about stating his opinion on things. We'll miss his corny jokes and our dinner time banter. Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers. Stay safe and take care of your loved ones. Bill and Julie

I have known Cliff since he was on the same softball team as my (then) brother-in-law. My heart is broken. I will miss his humor, our mutual love of Jeopardy and of Calvin and Hobbes, and his virtual private lessons in classical music. I am so sorry for Cliff’s family and friends that this happened at a time when they couldn’t visit him or be surrounded by those who also love him. My sincere condolences.
I am so sorry to learn of Cliffs passing. He was a great friend and person

Cliff lived next door to me in Port Dick for many years. He was a good person & could always give me a laugh! I sensed something was wrong when he stopped making his monthly visit to Port Dick. I meant to call him to check on him cause I knew he had health issues. Didn't do it & now he is gone!! Rest in PEACE Cliff!!

My deepest condolences go out to Cliffs entire family. He was a true gentleman and a true friend. He was one of my dearest friends, though we didn't see each other often, he was and is always in my heart. Cliff will be truly missed by many. May he rest in peace. I am honored to call him my friend. Heaven gained an angel and Earth lost a wonderful, bright, shining, funny personality that will forever be missed. My Deepest sympathy.
