  2. I have never left condolences, so not sure what to say.
    Cliff was my best friend all through high school at Seneca, and we had some great times together, mostly up to no good! I remember us always hanging out under the hood of his car, while listening to music… on 8-track. I had been trying to hunt him down for years, but being halfway across the planet in the army made it difficult.
    Saddened to have found him this way.
    My condolences to his family.
    He was a great friend and the closest I had to a brother.
