Colonel Clifford "Don" Palfreyman (Retired) ROY - Don passed away, surrounded by loved ones, after a brave and courageous fight with pancreatic cancer Thursday, December 28, 2006. He was born July 29, 1941 in Pocatello, Idaho to Clifford F. and Julia Lorraine Ekstrom Palfreyman. Don graduated from the old Davis High School in 1959. He married MarJean Morrow; and later divorced. On August 20, 1982, Don married his "little sweetie" Linda Marie Keller. He retired from Hill Air Force Base in 1998 after 32 years of service. He then worked for ML Technologies for four years before retirement. Don served in the Utah Army National Guard with the 19th Special Forces Group (Airborne) for 23 years, achieving the rank of Colonel. He had a great love and passion for old hot rods and custom cars. He was a member of the Stags Car Club for almost 30 years. He was one of the Goodguys Rod and Custom Association's Rodder's Representatives. One of his great loves was driving his '34 Ford three window coupe to car shows all over the western states. Another love was fitting in a good round of golf.
