Clifford was a devoted son and very loving father. If Clifford wasn't working in the factory he was working on the farm with his father and spending every possible time he could with his children. Clifford loved his children more than anything else in the world, and you could see it if you had the privilege to have met him.
Clifford worked as a Factory Worker for many years, while farming and long after leaving the farm. Clifford spent the next two to three decades taking care of his aging parents, parents, and being the best father, he could have ever been.
