Cliff loved early morning walks, trips to St. Joseph and breakfast at Tosi’s Café. Walking at the lighthouse always brought joy when he spotted rare water birds. He was especially good at spotting hawks along the roadsides when he traveled. How wonderful it was when he spotted eagles.
Cliff loved baseball, growing up in New York and seeing some of the greats play, he was a Yankees fan. He fondly recalled watching Micky Mantle play. Strangers quickly became friends when he commented on their opposing team’s baseball caps.
Music brought him much joy. He was especially fond of blues music, but also enjoyed classic rock and traditional country music. He was a fan of vinyl music and always liked playing a tune or two on his turntable. He volunteered at Ignition Music Garage in Goshen and was a fan of the Goshen College Radio Station, 91.1 The Globe.
