Clifford G. Babbitt

October 01, 2017
I think of you every day. I miss your smile each and every time I saw you. I miss those Saturday morning phone calls. I miss asking you to help fix something and you saying "I've got just the tool for that." I miss us reliving old memories of my childhood and how proud you said you were of me. I miss you asking "Got any coffee?" I miss seeing you devour donuts while Mom was out of the room. I miss your love of hot dogs. I miss you calling me hun. You always had advice for every problem. How I wish I could get your advice now. I miss you. I'll be seeing you...

I remember Mr. Babbitt driving kids in his car or vans to music conventions with the Honolulu Conservatory music students. He was devoted to his family and many others as well. He was funny, and always a blast to be around. He helped my mother (Deane Sullins)tremendously with setting up stages for music programs and anything she needed done Mr. Babbitt did it, no questions asked.
I'm so sorry for the loss of your husband, father, grand-father and great grand-father.
You will miss him, but he is in a better place and you will see him again someday. I'm praying for your family during this difficult time.
You probably don't remember me but I am Mrs. Sullins's daughter Wendy Moore (Sullins). I live in South Carolina and my friend Bernice Young (Calka) who was also a teacher @ my parents music store called me to tell me about Mr. Babbitt.
Love, Wendy Moore.

I remember Cliff as being very friendly and happy to see you. I loved watching him dance with his wife Joan. I can also remember when he married Joan in 1963. I got to attend the wedding when I was a child and enjoyed it very much.

What I remember most about Cliff was anywhere I went with him we were bound to run into someone he new. I mean any state across the country. I never could stop calling him Dad, and he didn't seem to mind. I'm proud of my children, and I was blessed Cliff and Joan were always there (good times, and bad) to help raise them. I don't want to say you will be missed. But rather you will be remembered. There is a Greek reference to a loved ones passing. Did he have Passion? I say yes. Passion like few men to enjoy life. I've heard it said a person dies twice. once when you breath your last breath, and then when your forgotten and no one speaks your name anymore. this will not be the case with Cliff. You were my Father in law for a good 20 years of my life. Thank you Dad, and I will always remember you.

Cliff and Joanie were always so nice and cheerful every time I would see them at shows and rehearsals. Cliff was a wonderful person and a great asset to everything he was involved in. Our prayers are with Joanie and the family. RIP, "Cliffy" You are missed and fondly remembered. Please accept our condolences, we cannot attend because of my recent surgery.
