  1. I was deeply saddened to learn of Cliff’s passing from Marc Ducharme when I attended my West Point Class of 1967 50th Reunion in mid-May. Cliff and I spent six months together in 1969 when we attended the Engineer Officer Basic Course, Airborne School and Ranger School. Cliff was my Ranger Buddy, and I could not have asked for a better Ranger Buddy and friend. We went through some grueling times, as well as some fun times, and had a few laughs along the way. Carmela and I send our thoughts and prayers to Barbara, their three sons and their families. Barbara was a great help to Carmela when our daughter, Beth, was born at Ft. Belvoir while Cliff and I were in the field at Ft. A. P. Hill.

  2. I was shocked and saddened today when a neighbor informed me of Cliff’s passing. I could not have asked for a better neighbor. Warm and friendly, dedicated Father and husband, Cliff also looked out for his neighbors as well. I enjoyed talking with him about the boys whereabouts and hearing construction updates on his and Barb’s retirement home. Over the pass three years that I traveled and lived abroad, I looked forward to coming home and catching up with him whenever he was working outside the house. After almost a year away, I returned at the end of April just in time to talk with him as preparations were finalized for “Two Men and two trucks” to pack and move some household effects that were too much for him and Barb to handle. I am so happy I got to talk with him before I departed again for my post. I pray that God will comfort Barbara, the boys and their families now as they celebrate Clif’s life, service and legacy, and in the difficult days ahead. He loved and was so proud of his family. And I treasured him and Barb as neighbors. I will definitely miss Clifford Keppeler…RIH neighbor.
