  9. Elaine & I were just informed of Cliff’s death. A sad day for all who knew him – I am sure. Our wonderful memories go back to our time at Colac Tech and sharing at he and Lois’ wedding on the Yarra River. Many hours chatting in the classroom and he and Titch about Driver Reviver. A very kind, funny and a little naughty at times. I’m sure he will be missed by many. Condolences Lois. David and Elaine Horne.

  12. Cliff was a regular shopper at our Colac Rivers store for quite a while. He used to come in with a list of things he was looking for, for his beloved wife and the girls and myself would always take the time to locate the items for him.
    Very saddened to learn of his passing today.
    We always used to look forward to his visits, a lovely man with an infectious smile.
    Rest peacefully Cliff,
    From all of us at Rivers Colac xx

  13. Cliff was instrumental in helping my son (who hated school) get a fitting and turning apprenticeship where he has excelled as a tradesman. Cliff was always interested to know what was happening in his life.
    As a warrior for road safety Cliff was unequalled. Colac owes him so much in this area.
    I was very saddened to read of his passing.

  14. Sad to hear of the passing of Cliff, my family went to the marriage of Lois and Cliff. Lois and I went to the same secondary school and we worked at the same place many years ago. I last saw Cliff at Lois’s daughters home when he was in Melbourne last year
