Clifton got the nickname 'Fuzzy" when he was young and it stuck with him throughout his life. He never met a stranger and could sit and talk for hours. Fuzzy was a career heavy equipment operator who traveled around the world making difficult heavy lifts. He was a workaholic and while working one night, had a major stroke that ended his career. He missed being an operator until the day he died. Fuzzy had a love for motorcycles, big trucks and fast cars. He and Patricia liked to travel and enjoyed many trips on their motorcycles, on cruises and by air. They made memories Patricia will cherish forever. His favorite vacation destination was Aruba. They met people from all over the world that remain friends today.
He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

LET ME GO
When I come to the end of the road and the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room, why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not for long, and not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once shared, miss me, but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must take and each must go alone,
It's all part of the master plan, a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart, go to the friends we know.
Laugh at all the things we used to do, Miss me, but let me go.
