Clifford Leroy Case, 93, passed away at the Powell Valley Care Center on the evening of Oct. 8, 2021.
Cliff was born April 12, 1928, to Joseph and Mary Case, in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He was the oldest of three children. He had one sister, Mary, and one brother, Joseph. Cliff married Connie N. Mulford in Pascagoula, Mississippi, on Jan. 14, 1950. They raised one child, Kenneth Case.
Cliff served in the Navy, the Army Air Corps and the Air Force, retiring honorably after 20 years of service. Cliff then worked for Control Data and other companies before ending his work career with the Powell Public Library and Fremont Motors.
Cliff will be remembered as an exemplary human being who always treated those around him with kindness and respect. His sense of loyalty guided him throughout his life, as Cliff always put those he loved before himself. He enjoyed sharing his stories, especially over chicken fried steak or ice cream, of his long and illustrative life. Cliff will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Cliff was preceded in death by his sister Mary, his wife of 51 years Connie, his son Ken and his later-in-life friend and companion Rosemary McGary.
Cliff is survived by his brother Joseph, his daughter-in-law Myrna Case, six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
