I think I first met Cliff when I was about 15. We were instantly best friends throughout high school. After graduation from Sayville High he joined the service and two years later so did I. We lost addresses and I moved to Chicago area, and met again at a high school reunion nearly fifty years later, staying in touch over the last years. We were both stationed in Anchorage Alaska, although not at the same time, and that was a topic of continual discussion. We reminisced about clamming in the Great south Bay every summer in my boat, bowling at Sayville Lanes, bribing the usher at the Sayville theater with clams in exchange for admission, but most of all I remember being welcomed into his home by his Mom and Dad. RIP. You were a true friend.

I worked with Cliff at BEP. My thoughts and prayers go to his family. May he rest in peace.
I had the fortune of working with Cliff and he was a gem. From his sense of humor, to his dedication to work and to our shared love of coffee, I can't begin to put into words how much I miss him. He was such a rarity because not only was he extremely intelligent, but he had a dry sense of humor which not everyone can understand/appreciate. The past few months have been much dimmer not being able to have our coffee talk. Sending his family lots of love during this rough time. Please know that his co workers miss him terribly.
Enjoyed working with Cliff over the years at BEP - he will certainly be missed! Loved his type of humor. Cliff was dedicated man and took pride in a job well done. My prayers and sympathies to the family.

I knew Cliff through our many shared years at the Bureau of Engraving & Printing. He was intelligent and dedicated, with a fake-gruff sense of humor that I always enjoyed. I miss him now and always will.

To the Lane Family, You will be in my prayers. Cedrick
Cliff was a great person and a great supervisor. It pains me to use the past tense. I am grateful for his encouragement and valued his judgement and straight-forward advice while working for him at BEP. I enjoyed his sense of humor (I'm from NY, too). I miss him dearly. I will keep him and his family in my prayers, especially his beloved wife. With deep sadness and sympathies, Jeff Weidman
My condolences to Cliff's wife and his family. Cliff was my boss for many years. He was a good boss and many times made my job easier. He loved to work and was good at what he did. RIP Cliff you will be missed.
