Cliff was preceded in death by his father Clifford Melville Keddie, Jr. Cliff is survived by his mother Lerna Shanley Keddie, his sisters Joyce Stephen, Barbara Keddie, and Kaye Thorton, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Cliff was an energetic optimist. He enjoyed success in the tennis industry during its boom in the 70's and 80's and went on to start up two sucessful powder coating businesses, and in later years was an entrepreneur involved in investments - he was always working on something, his mind never retiring.
As a child Cliff excelled in this athleticism in diving and gymnastics, and right from high school joined the Army with the 82nd Airborne.
He had a memorable laugh and a hearty enthusiasm for life, which he lived his way, and never turned down an opportunity to discuss politics.
