Clifton was a loving dad, papa, grandpa and papa Smurf. He worked several jobs such as a paver operator for Barrus, working on small and large engines, building houses and working on the farm as a young boy. His most passionate job was a long distance truck driver for almost 40 years hauling cows and hogs while working for Bryan Hargett. He also loved having BBQs for his family, friends and cutting the grass. Clifton got himself into some crazy situation at times but laughed about them later.
The family would like to thank everyone for all their thoughts and prayers during this time. A special thanks goes out to Hospice for all they have done especially, Nurses Christie, Frank, Delphane, Shakinna and Chaplin Rick. We love you guys.
