Clifford Joseph Stueck
1932 - 2021
February 28, 1932 – June 18, 2021 Born at home in Queens Village, NY, Clifford Joseph Stueck was brought into the world by Arthur and Florence Keenan Stueck, followed by siblings, Arthur, Patricia, George, and Francis. Cliff was a decorated Korean War veteran, who was awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge, two Purple Hearts, and the Bronze Star Medal with "V" for Valor, for his significant bravery as a 1st Lieutenant leading a combat platoon for the 25th Infantry Division. Shortly before leaving for Korea, Cliff met the love of his life, Lois Elaine Hillicke. Lois wrote to the young lieutenant every single day while he was in combat, and it was through those letters that they came to know each other and fall in love. They were married in 1956 and had six children, Eileen (Ken Leech), Clifford (deceased), Kathleen, John (Jill Feinberg), Paul (Peggy Harlow), and Flo (Jen Chotiner), and five grandchildren, Catherine (Nicolas Dovetta), Stephen, Clifford III, John Jr., and Kieran. Cliff spent more than 30 years as a senior executive in information systems with Emery Worldwide, retiring as Senior Vice President, North America. Cliff also enjoyed his role as a political husband when Lois became the first woman elected as First Selectman of Easton, CT. He attended Brooklyn Technical High School, St. John's University, and received an MBA from the University of Connecticut. He most recently lived in Sierra Madre, CA where his beloved wife Lois still resides. His family was his first and abiding love, but Cliff's life-long passions also included photography and language, as evident in his soon-to-be-published memoir, Queens Village. Donations in his memory may be made to Ss. Joachim and Anne School, Queens Village, NY, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, Washington D.C., or the Sierra Madre Public Library. A memorial service and reception will be held at Trinity Presbyterian Church, Pasadena, July 5 at 3:30 PM. A ceremony will be held at the Long Island National Cemetery, Farmingdale, Long Island, NY, July 21 at 11:00 AM.
