Clifton L. Sweat, 67, of Willoughby, passed away April 21, 2014, at Lake Health West Medical Center in Willoughby. Born Dec. 22, 1946, in Cleveland to Clifton W. and Lillian (Kantor) Sweat, he married Jeanne Bunner June 8, 1968, at St. Mary's Church in Painesville. He had lived in Willoughby for 41 years, and knew everyone in his neighborhood and was known in the community as "Crazy Cliff," the name he used in two businesses he operated – Crazy Cliff Hauling and Crazy Cliff D.J. Service. Through these two companies, he came in contact with many people. Before starting his two self-owned companies, he had a 20-year career as record sales representative for Handleman Company of Detroit, Mich., who distributed records and tape nationally to department stores. His lifetime love of music started with a basement band at his parent's home in Maple Heights. From that time, he had numerous bands starting with Cintrells, Castells, Galens Express and others, most notably the "Cleveland Express Blues Band," where his other nickname evolved, "Whiskey Cliff." He was front man and lead singer of the band and always stood center stage. That love carried him into Crazy Cliff D.J. Service, where he provided music for weddings, anniversaries, parties, and etc. He also participated in the annual "Doc's Deepwood Run," and annual News-Herald "Johnnycake Jog." His greatest joy was providing music to his "children" at Deepwood Center. His face would light up with them. Music also carried him into singing and acting in community theatre in productions of "Fiddler on the Roof," "Jesus Christ Superstar," "Godspell," and several others. His life touched so many people. He reached out, providing help, laughter and music and enriched each that he came in contact. He always wanted to have laughter and smiles to surround him and generated that to others. Over the years, he was a member of the "Breakfast Club," spending hours at area restaurants with friends, laughing, gossiping and enjoying life. Survivors are his wife, Jeanne; mother, Lillian (Kantor) Sweat; sister, Debra Ann of Maple Heights; brothers-in-law, Charles David (Mary) Bunner of Asheville, N.C., and George Michael (Linda Jean) Bunner of Mentor; sister-in-law, Linda Lou (Joseph) Bednarski of Garfield Heights; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Clifton W. Sweat. Friends may call from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 25, 2014, at McMahon-Coyne-Vitantonio Funeral Home, 6330 Center St. (Route 615, north of Route 2), Mentor, where a service will be held at 4:30 p.m. (Please note the time of service.)
