Clifford, Cliffy, Cliff Dee, Heath Cliff, and even Hump Daddy were just some of the names he was known by. But to most of us he was plain ole Cliff!
But “plain ole” Cliff was not! Cliffs impact in the car scene, along with his pristine 1964 Ford Galaxie 500, started with a group of guys and their tricked out rides who gathered every weekend at the local Jolly Rogers to catch up and talk story. However, it was Cruise Mode Car Club, RockBottom Minis, and The Others Bike Club that had the honor of having him as part of their family. No matter what family he was in at the time, he will always be remembered as the guy who helped clean your ride for a car show, who stayed up all night working on your hydraulic system and who stayed up all night piecing together your 1960s’ Schwinn bicycle. Cliff may be gone, but his passion and essence will live on in all whose lives he has touched.
