He had worked as a Biomedical Technician and had spent his last few years sailing the East coast, becoming a member of a close-knit community of sailors.  He was known for his positive and generous nature, his wisdom, his tenacity and his wonderful laugh. True to his delightful sense of humor, Cliff, whose leg was amputated said, “I’m positive I’m a one-legged sailor.”
