Clifford Bernard Stearns Obituary
Clifford Bernard Stearns, age 66, of Conowingo, MD passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Thursday, September 14, 2017.

Born on October 13, 1950 in Concord, NH, he was the son of Helen Hood Stearns and the late Bernard Clifford Stearns. Cliff was a graduate of the University of New Hampshire.

He married his wife, Hoppy, in 1979 and that same year they purchased their family farm, Whizard's Lair Farm. Cliff worked many jobs in his lifetime, including: training Standardbred Racehorses, driving the Budweiser Clydesdales, moving houses, dredging, and installing Geotextile tubes. He also had a pilot's license.

Cliff enjoyed foxhunting but, his favorite time of the year was always deer season. A boisterous man with a keen sense of fashion and a larger than life personality, Cliff will always be remembered for his love of joking and laughing with his family and friends.

Cliff is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, Elise duPont Stearns; daughter, Winter N. Paxson and her husband, Greg; sons: Simon Stearns and Hunter Stearns; five grandchildren with one on the way; uncle, Gilbert H. Norris; LOVING mother, Helen Stearns; and LOVING sister, Caroline Stearns.

SERVICES: Services will be held privately at the convenience of the family.

Memorial contributions in Cliff's honor can be made payable to "River Hills Foxhounds" and sent care of the funeral home, PO Box 248, Rising Sun, MD 21911.
