Clifford was a Foosball Champion from back in the Johnny Sandbox days on South Padre Island who enjoyed fishing and the outdoors as well as being around the barbque telling the same joke over and over and laughing harder then the audience.  He loved his Grandchildren and teaching them his favorite expression "You Better Believe It", he enjoyed his days with Dorathy and learning how to make tortillas as well as making everyone else laugh. One of his favorite pass times were playing the maquinitas which is probably trying to convince the Lord they would be a good addition to heaven.  CC will be missed by all and people will always remember him and his Boudreaux and Thibedeaux jokes.   

 A Memorial service will be held at a later date.
