Loving husband of 44 years to his beloved wife Donna (Whyte) world’s greatest father who was always so proud of his four children, Jane Magee (Curt) of St. Catharines, Sandi Lanthier (Sylvain) of Guelph, Jamie Scirto (Stephen) of Snyder, NY and Matthew O’Toole (Tara) of Welland. Amazing grandfather to his grandbabies Sam, Jack, Lily, Stephen and Sullivan. Known to them as 'Papa', they will miss him dearly, he will forever be in their hearts. He will be dearly missed by his two brothers Paul (Elaine) and Raymond (Sharon).
Cliff was an extraordinary husband, father, grandfather, father in-law, brother, brother-in-law, and uncle. He will be greatly missed by so many people. He was a fun loving man who was always joking around, enjoyed playing his guitar and singing while cracking open a cold one. He loved road trips to anywhere with his wife. He lived his life exactly the way he wanted to, all the while he made sure his family was happy and taken care of. He was a hard worker and he gave 100% to everything he did. May you be at peace now and enjoy the party up there!
