Richard Clifford Sr.

Richard P. Clifford Sr., 77, passed away September 17, 2016 peacefully in Houston Texas.  He is survived by his beloved wife, Bonnie J. Clifford.  Richard had 3 children; 2 sons, Richard Jr. and Brad. As well as his daughter, Nancy.  He also had 9 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.

Born on January 19, 1939, Richard was raised in Albany New York. Alongside his family, in 1979, he moved to Houston, to become a faithful servant working in the mission field for many years, as well as a loyal 17 years working maintenance in the church.  His favorite activities included playing tennis and working out in the gym, and of course making memories with his family. He was a very kind and loving man who had a smile for everyone, and if you were lucky enough to be around him at the right moment, he was quite the jokester as well. Nothing brought a smile to his heart faster, than to make everyone laugh.


Richard will be sorely missed, and never forgotten by all who knew him. To his soul, may he forever rest in peace. He will be forever in our hearts. We love you Gramps.
