I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine the pain of loosing your dad..........my prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. I didn't know him either, but he must have been a great man as evidenced by the testimonials of others here. Rest in peace, Cliff.

I really didn't know him, but from the sound of things, he touched many people's lives. That is difficult to do and is very honorable. He will be missed. My thoughts are with you and your family during this tough time.

My heart just dropped to my stomach when I read the thread title. Cliff was a fine man. My condolences to you and all his family. He is in a far better place. "To be absent from the body, is to be present with Christ." Blessing to you all.
Well said Jim. I had the same reaction when I read the thread. I will miss his visits when he would stop by the dealership and chat. I have a license plate that he did for me when he first started doing them. I have kept it in the house to preserve it. Cliff was a great person to know.
May he truly have peace now in the presence of our Lord.

I have the highest of regards for Cliff--got one of his custom lic plates hanging on my entrance gate and another in the back window of an Indy. He was one of the best, and we will all miss him very much.

Soooo sorry for your loss. Never met your dad, but he was a very friendly "virtual friend". You could tell that he was a very nice person. Several times, he sent me pictures, and I scanned them for him and posted them here on the forum. He made me a few very nice homeade items, and I will forever treasure them.
Not fair. Not fair at all. He will be missed here. i will never forget him. so sorry.
I hope you and your family find solace during this sad time.

There are no words that are sufficient. "He will be sorely missed" is far from enough, but it's the best I can do at the moment. Others, more eloquent than I at times like these, may be able to convey the full magnitude of this loss.
I am so sorry to hear that. I have been praying these past few weeks for health and healing to him. I guess that God decided it was better that he not suffer any more. I only had limited conversation with him, but I will certainly miss him. He made me a plate that I am really grateful for.
Be proud: Your dad was really loved.
Be comforted: He's in a better place.
You and the rest of his family will be in my prayers.
Words offer no solace for the pain of his passing. Far too many people have been taken by the evil known as cancer, he's just the latest good soul to concede. I'm glad to hear at least he went peacefully. I had the pleasure of talking to him a couple times on here and every time he was nothing but nice and a joy to hear from.
Oh god, this is so sad. I really enjoyed never2old here on the forum. It just wont be the same without him around. I will pray for you and your family. He is just another great person waiting to greet us on the other side when we cross over.
Stay strong, and know your father is still alive in his posts, that will be here on our special place of the internet.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know that Cliff and I had an exchange in a thread that was written about his cancer. He was a stand-up guy and addressed every person that commented personally, and in a separate post. One of the forums finest.
21 rev salute to him.
May your road be forever winding, your fuel tank forever full.

We all leave our mark here as we live our lives and how we live our lives tells how long people remember us. I did not know your dad but from what I have read here I can see that never2old (cliff) was loved and will be in our thoughts for a long time.
My condolences and prayers to you and your family

Thanks for putting all the effort into a fiero and keeping the dream alive. Love the nic name never2old. Thank you for sending your son to post when sick as couldn't make it to post as were thinking of the fiero community. The fiero community will be thinking of Cliff and his contributions to fiero world we hope all to be never2old to enjoy ourselves.
I'm so sorry to hear about this. Like a lot of people, my heart sank when I read the title. I am glad that he is not suffering anymore. He explained to me through pm's how hard this has been on him. I am so glad I got to know him a bit better than most on here. He was a wonderful friend who I've grown to love.
My condolences to you and yours. Cliff will live on in my memory.
I don't have a picture of the license plate he made me, but here's the painting he painted for me. Everytime I look at it, I will remember my friend and what a wonderful man he was.
