    Dear Joanne and family, my heart goes out to all. I have many fond memories of working with Cliff. One being, shortly after he started work and had an accident involving a forklift and his foot. While rushing him to the hospital, and hitting I think every pothole, he calmly said, please, don’t rush while gritting his teeth. He was such a good sport when his brother James, provided all his work shirts to me when he was away on his honeymoon, which I then sewed long tuxedo tails so that he would look fancy when he came back. I picked Cliffe’s mind many times about crops, weeds, etc. over the years and was so thankful that he took the time to educate me. I will forever remember what a kind, generous and fun-loving gentleman he was. God’s garden will be more beautiful with your contribution. Rest in Peace.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I worked with Cliff at Hyland Seeds and always appreciated his knowledge and dedication. He and Craig made quite a pair when they combined their efforts for plot days and dealer meetings. It was a pleasure to know Cliff and work with him. I am very sorry for your loss.

    I am so sad to hear about Cliff. We have a long history as cousins and he was very helpful and kind to my parents on their farm in his early career.
    I am very proud of Cliff and his brother Jim as they grew up in the city and returned to agribusiness as well trained young men. Cliff and Joanne were an active young couple in Dundas County and he was not long before he started his consulting business. We valued his knowledge and knew that his passion would make the business a success. Hugh and Jillian have inherited a lot of the same passion in their interests.
    Sue and I are so sorry for his loss to his family and to so many that know him.

    I’ll miss Uncle Cliff. I have fond memories of our walks on the farm talking about the crops especially corn, his warm friendly hugs, and he was always sweet and kind. Getting excited this time of year knowing the family was making the trek in the car even sometimes in bad weather to spend Christmas with the rest of the family. Us cousins getting to play with our new gifts or even skate on Grandma and Grandpa’s private ice rink out back. Sending Much Love to Aunt Joanne, Jill, Hugh and family during this very difficult time while tears fall. ❤

    I am sorry to hear of your loss and wish your families all the best in this difficult time, I was a colleague of Cliff’s during my time at Hyland Seeds, and recently connected with him again with some plot work in 2019. I recognized him as a quiet but very knowledgeable man.
