A note from classmate Eric Wasiolek:
Cliff and I were best friends in high school. We played football and he was the left guard and I was the right guard. On Varsity, our positions reversed; he was right guard and I was left guard. Cliff was a top rate student and football player. He went to Lawrence University in Appleton Wisconsin. He played football at Lawrence as well as received excellent marks. When he graduated, he went to law school at Loyola University. About the time I was graduating from Berkeley, he fell ill with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. That was about 1983. He died around that time. He was working in some capacity for a law firm in Chicago when he fell ill.
