I just heard about Cliff's untimely passing. We were friends in vet school. He was one year ahead of me and I have fond memories of him allowing me to tag along to some of the senior parties. He was a great guy. I hadn't seen him since his graduation in 1985, but had just had an e-mail exchange with him for the first time in March 2009. I still have two things that he gave me when he moved away from Ft Collins, one is his trout begonia that is still alive and well and the other is a small casting of a horse head that he made at the local foundary. I'm very sad to know that those who are the closest to him no longer have such a kind and loving person in their lives and will lament that we were never able to reconnect. I grieve for you all and hope that time is helping to heal the pain of your loss.

I am so sorry to learn of Cliff's passing. He was a good friend though I hadn't seen him in the last couple of years - I got to know Cliff in the Peace Corps in Zaire and had the good fortune to visit him again in Louisiana and Ohio. What a funny guy, and his knowledge was encyclopedic. I was looking him up online to ask yet another question. As Jane Sheetz wrote, Kwa heri, my friend.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Ellen and your Family. Growing up with your Family in Birmingham I can still remember making the rounds in the neighborhood on Halloween with your family and of course Cliff. Such great times as kids we had with the Monahan Family. Mary and I will miss him so much. We are lucky to have had such great times with Cliff.

Even though I didn't speak with Cliff very often, there was a comfort in knowing that he was on this planet. He is the first of my friends of 40 years to go and I will sorely miss him. He was a big man in life and even larger in the lore of my circle of friends. Good-bye Cliff, heaven is a lucky place to have you now.

After reading all the loving comments on the Deyo-Davis website I wasn't sure I could read these too, but every entry remarks on different memories of Cliff. He was a unique individual and a wonderful true freind. He introduced me to "real" coffee and made Eastern dishes I didn't know existed. We will all miss him.

I was so shocked and saddened by the news of Clif's death. Clif and I were housemates in Fort Collins while at CSU. I have many wonderful memories of him....his humor and his his acute perceptions. My favorite time with Clif however was years later when he visited my husband and I in Ann Arbor after returning from Africa. We all sat around the bonfire listening to story after story of his adventures and contributions.He could tell a story like no one else.. We laughed until we cried. My thoughts are with all of you that new and loved Clif.

My condolences to all who loved Clif. I knew him only through my daughter, Andrea, who enjoyed his friendship and an occasional game of Scrabble. We both admired him for many reasons, among them his staunch dedication to environmental concerns and to life around the world. I am so sorry he's gone from the earth he worked to protect.

I knew Cliff during High School and through the first of our college years. No one was funnier nor more true than Cliff. His love for animals was apparent even then. (Cliff had pet Boas he often brought with him when visiting friends.) Cliff kept us entertained with his antics and his hilarious imitations. I am happy to hear he accomplished so much in his short life. God bless you and be with you Cliff.

I met Cliff many long years ago at CSU. Since hearing of his passing, I've been musing through dozens and dozens of letters he wrote me, over decades, continents, life cycles, and relationships. I am comforted in knowing he achieved nearly all the goals he talked about in those letters, from dreaming about grad school, to wondering if he might be a good teacher, to making a difference in Africa, to speaking many languages and experiencing many cultures (always including the food and beverages!). I, too, have a Cliff Monahan hood ornament, mine being a stylized horse head. Cliff was the most unique individual I've ever met, and I know I wouldn't be the same person I am had I not had the great pleasure of his acquaintance. He always experienced life to the fullest, and urged others to do the same. His passing is a huge loss, to his family, his students, his profession, and to us, his many many friends. Kwa heri, bwana, my good friend.
