Mr. Blackledge was born September 21, 1959, in Gladwin, the son of Jay and Mildred E. (Price) Blackledge.
Clifford was a life resident of Harrison. Clifford had been a member of Iron Workers Local 25 for thirty three years until his retirement in 2010. Mr. Blackledge was the owner and operator of Blackie's North Star Cabins of Harrison. Words barely do justice to a man that meant so many things to so many people. He was a loving father, proud business man, outstanding citizen and a best friend to many. Clifford was a model human being. Our love for you will last forever. As will the memories we have shared. The world is truly a lesser place in your absence.
Surviving Clifford is his loving family; his son, Jason Todd Blackledge of Harrison; his mother, Mildred (Millie) Blackledge also of Harrison; three sisters: Judy Brenner and husband Lon of Freeland, Joy Gierucki and husband Ray of Detroit, and Karen LeRoux and husband Craig of Brownsburg, Ind.; two brothers: Jay Dean Blackledge and wife Bev of Harrison and Douglas Blackledge and wife Sam of Las Vegas, Nev.; and also is survived by his many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Clifford was united in marriage to the former Kathy Border in 1983 and they have remained friends and have mutually cared for and unconditionally loved their son Jason. Mr. Blackledge was preceded in death by his father and two brothers: Lonnie Dale Blackledge and Kenneth Lee Blackledge.
