Very sorry to hear of Cliff's passing . My Dad always considered him a dear friend .I was privileged to meet him at one of the reunions .
So sorry to hear about your husband, father. I regret not seeing this in time as I would certainly have come to the service. Both Mr. and Mrs. Digre were always kind to the neighborhood kids. I didn't know that he was in WW11. Guys like Cliff and my Dad truly saved the world. We lost mom last Spring unexpectedly so she and dad are together again and for ever.
I wish you all well through this time of grief.
We are so sorry for your loss. Getting to spend time with Cliff last summer is something we really apprechiate.
Bernice, Dan and family,
We are so sorry to hear of Cliff's passing. We didn't see the obit until last night (Fri.). Cliff was a wonderful man, a man of great integrity. We so enjoyed working with him on the MISCO building. He will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known him.
With our deepest sympathy,
Willard and Arlene Weikle
I tried very hard to get to Mpls. to celebrate Uncle Cliff's life. He was a special man who will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
I am so thankful to have stumbled upon knowing anything about Cliff. He helped me know about my own Father's war experience than anyone before. I was thrilled at the pictures he sent of him and my Dad together. He knew a side of my Father I could have never known. Thank you Cliff....so very much. God bless you and keep you well....and PLEASE tell my Dad that I loved him more than he knows. This world will miss you both.
Sorry to hear about Clifford. My father, Arnold, was a plumber in Hendricks all of his life. My brother Doug, used to go to Rolland for dental work.My name is Cindy(Digre)Fehn and live in Buffalo, Mn. I am wondering if he was a distant Cousin???
Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. We were saddened to hear of your loss.
We were so sorry for your loss. Cliff was a special guy. We have many fond memories going way back including spending time with you here in Arizona and all the Lutefisk Dinners in Lakeville, going to Hendricks and staying in the bed and breakfast to name a few. He will be truely missed.
Bernice we are still in
Arizona but will be flying home next week. I am so sorry we cannot be at the funeral. I will call you after we get home. All our love
I lived next to Cliff and Bernice in SW Minneapolis back in the '80's and early '90's, and they were the nicest neighbors anybody could have. I will always remember Cliff's smile (and Bernice/me digging out our shared driveway after big snowstorms!)..... May his memory always be a blessing for all who knew him. Ellen/Salome
My empathy to all of you who mourn. Life here is never long enough! Cliff was a jolly man, and I enjoyed reading his book and seeing him, and Bernice, over the years in Hendricks. My grandma Mammy had great love for your entire family. We are always grateful, Dan, for sharing your amazing voice at her funeral. Precious memories, how they linger and how they satisfy the soul.

I am so sorry for your loss. We enjoyed many memories at the lake Mom & Dad (Myron and Alma Miller) loved sharing stories of Uncle Tuck. My thoughts and prayers are with you all
Dan and family

Cliff was a pillar of the loudspeaker business in its heyday and I'm glad to have had the chance to celebrate that contribution with him at the ALMA 50th in 2011. My heart goes out to Dan who went on to keep his father's flame burning bright.
Berniece, Dan, & Digre Family,
Our sympathy to you, all, on the loss of a talented man and another member of the Greatest Generation....
Hugs, from your Hoversten Cousins in Waseca, MN. [Bill is the nephew of Bernie H. Lee, whom we think you worked, so diligently, with on the reunions.] Hugs to you all during this time of loss.
I was saddened to learn of Cliff's passing and wish to express my deepest sympathies to the entire Digre/MISCO family for your loss.
We are sorry to hear of the loss of our fellow Kneafsey Cove neighbor, Cliff. Our prayers and condolences go to the family.

My heart goes out to you at this time and in the days ahead.
To Cliff's family: thank you for sharing him with my family. Cliff flew on a B-17 flight with my Uncle Earl "Tuck" Rinehart when he was killed on 09/12/1944. Cliff shared stories with my entire family of my Uncle that filled many holes in my family history. Cliff took my son Tucker, who was named after my Uncle, under his wing during the times we saw him. I will never forget us seeing Cliff at an air show in Eden Prairie where he shared with the crowd the story of the day my Uncle Tuck died--how emotional he got--and then introducing both myself and my son Tucker to the crowd. What an incredibly humbling experience.
What a blessing you all had in him-a TRUE American Hero. My family grieves with you and pray for healing for all of you.
Dear Bernice and family, I am so saddened to hear of your loss. Cliff was a wonderful man and he was deeply loved and respected. Mammy (Gyda Pederson, my grandmother) often spoke to me about the wonderful memories and times she had staying with your family. I saw him several years ago in Hendricks and we shared a nice, long hug. You have my deepest sympathies., Bonnie Blue
My thoughts and Prayers goes out to you all.
Friend, neighbor, and speaker supplier to us for close to 50 years. Always a delight to talk to and receive an education. Cliff was a wealth of knowledge and very interesting to discuss speakers and other topics. We have lost a very good man and I, along with many others, will miss him greatly. My condolences to Cliff's wife, Bernice and family members.

Cliff was very well liked by his many friends at the Eighth Air Force luncheons. His always friendly greeting, enthusiastic and energetic approach to living, caring manner, and booming, larger than life voice, will be missed by his old friends.
An amiable icon of the loudspeaker industry, Board Emeritus, a gentleman, well loved, much appreciated by all and now deeply missed. We celebrate his life and the enduring legacy he's given us as a founding member of ALMA, the American Loudspeaker Manufacturers Association. I feel personally blessed to have had the great honor of meeting Cliff at ALMA's 50th Anniversary in 2011, and seeing his son Dan and friend Michael Oslac present him with the first-ever Gold Driver award honoring him for contributions to the industry association! On behalf of all our members, our hearfelt condolences.
Cliff Digre taught me much in the short time I knew him. He enriched my life. His greatness was inversely proportional to his physical stature.
I'll remember Cliff as a people person and storyteller. He would clamp a hand on your shoulder, peer into your eyes, and ask you about yourself, listening with genuine interest. He was getting a sense of you—where you might fit into his unfailingly sharp memory bank of people and experiences.
From that memory came stories about his family, his youth in Hendricks, MN, his Norwegian heritage, trips he'd taken, food he'd eaten, people he'd met, and events related to work, sporting events, and people and things he appreciated—which were numerous.
Cliff's best story of all is his book—http://www.intolifesschool.com You can hear his voice on every page. We will no longer hear Cliff's voice, but will be forever enriched by all that we learned from him and appreciated about him. My condolences to Cliff's family, and my heartfelt thanks for sharing him with the rest of us. He will be mightily missed.
Sorry for your loss...Cliff was a great person and I enjoyed working for him at MISCO. My deepest sympathy to the Digre family.
So very sorry to hear that our great family friend and neighbor is gone. He was quite a character and we'll cherish all the memories of times together and the stories he told.
