USAF Retired MSgt Clifford S. Harris passed away peacefully on Saturday June 25, 2016 at the age of 84 at the VA hospital in Albuquerque. At the time of his passing, he was in the company of his loving wife Georgia, as well as his sons, their wives and his grandchildren.

Clifford retired with the rank of Master Sergeant in 1971 from the United States Air Force after twenty one years of dedicated service. After his military service, Clifford began a second career with the United States Post Office where he worked until his second retirement.

His passing leaves a great void in the lives of many and he will be greatly missed.
