“While I only knew Cliff for a year, his coaching made an incredibly meaningful impact on my life. Cliff inspired myself and all of the JDubs through his passion for rowing, and was truly invested not only in the improvement of his athletes as rowers, but also as people. He always pushed me to work hard and was such a selfless, dedicated coach. I will forever cherish Cliff’s advice, funny remarks and emails, and support. My deepest condolences to Cliff’s loved ones, he will be so missed ❤”

“Our deepest sympathy to Cliff's family. We met Cliff when our daughters became friends at a very young age. They are still friends to this day. Our daughters also played hockey together and we would have great chit chats with him in the stands. It was easy to see that he loved hockey and was so proud of Blair playing. A great Dad, that was for sure. With caring thoughts and sincere condolences, Patty & Jim Costain”

“My profound condolences to all of Cliff's family. While I only knew him for a short two years of his life, he greatly changed my life for the better. He taught me so much in such a short period of time which I will forever be grateful for. He was an incredible rowing coach and an even more incredible person. He always made every rower feel welcome on the team no matter their skill level and he always helped everyone improve. I will forever be thankful to have been able to have him as my coach.”
