Not sure what to say?

We are so very saddened by Clif's passing. I knew Clif (and Vickie) at Learjet, and met again later through our mutual friends, Bruce and Beth Peters. Clif was from the same small town as my parents and grandparents, so it was a nice bond to have those shared memories of that place. Warm regards and kind thoughts to the Larison familty, from Chris and Darla Marshall

I met Clif (and Vickie) while working with their daughter Nichole at Raytheon. We became good friends. They treated me like family from the beginning and invited me to their holiday dinners. They are such a warm and loving family. I will miss Clif's laugh and the kindness he always extended to me and everyone! Rest in peace Clif! You will be dearly missed.

Clif and I enjoyed many good times together. As a systems DOA/DER, Clif helped to obtain certification on several King Air projects at Beech. We developed a trust relationship. I also worked for VJETS on one of Clif's projects. He is a very knowable and generous person. I enjoyed working with him.

Clif was my dear friend. He helped me through the roughest time of my adult life going through divorce, loss of work, loss of my family. He was always there for me to talk with. We talked about everything. Invented airplanes, engines, crazy idea farm and just reflected on life.

I miss not having my friend to talk with.

You were always very generous with the knowledge you possessed and shared with many others and myself. You taught me many things over the years, one of the most important of all to slow down and think things through. Thank you for being a genuinely good person and a pillar of knowledge through out the years.
Rest in peace my friend.

We met Clif and Vickie dancing and will always remember being the only two couples to be the first to dance. You will be missed. Warren and Gloria Smith, Wichita

Clif and Vicki were both inspirational. I am so very sorry for the loss. I worked for Clif's parents as a teenager, and will never forget what I learned from their support. They opened up their business for a badly needed and appreciated job at Larison's Jeweley Store. Archie, Shirley, and their families opened up their arms to me. Again, words cannot express my sincere sympathy.
Love and prayer for your sweet family,
Sandy (Lazzers) Carey

You will be missed my friend and colleague. We had the opportunity to work together on many programs over the years, most of which where very unique. I always enjoyed not just working with you but socializing when we traveled. I will miss your direct way of talking and thinking and will miss your laugh. Be at peace in the hands of our Lord and savior. My God be with your family in this time of change. God Bless.

How can it be, that Clif has passed. He was an icon to Beth and I. He will be forever missed. He and I were lifelong friends from college until now. We shared a passion for flying, engineering, family and life. We met at KSU in Air Force ROTC. He proved to be a good friend to me and those around him. He always had a funny story, a jovial laugh and a way to make a bad day better. I will forever miss the sparkle in his eyes, his timeless stories and his love for helping others. Vicki, Nichole,...
