    Will echo Davids comment and add that we had a lot of good times growing up. From little league baseball to 4th of July celebrations in Suisun to bar hopping in Suisun City durning the 80's, to selling me a house in 08. He was also a brother member of local DeMolay chapter. Cliff has always been known for his big grin and laugh Will miss you mate, rest well.

    Very saddened to receive news of Cliff's passing while we were away. He was a fixture in Suisun City, and loved it dearly. Cliff always had a joke or three to tell, always the first volunteer fireman to get to the fire truck when the siren blew; a great hand at BBQ, and a genuinely nice guy. He will be missed. Pat and Frank Welch
