    So sorry for your loss and ours. We at cardiac rehab will miss Cliff. He was very dedicated to exercising for over an hour, three times a week. An inspiration to many at age 92.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I had the privilege of working with Cliff at the Waupun Correctional Institution for 18 years. During my 33 years of State Service as a Food Service Admin. I never supervised a more dedicated employee than Cliff. His work ethics were exceptional. It was a true honor to work with him.
