Clif was a re­tired welder and worked for Sun Ship­build­ing and Hel­mark Steel. He was an avid crab­ber and boater who loved spend­ing time with his fam­ily and en­joyed wood­work­ing, gun col­lect­ing, metal de­tect­ing, mu­sic, Fam­ily Feud, and any­thing to do with pi­rates. Clif al­ways had jokes to tell and made friends ev­ery­where he went. He was a won­der­ful fa­ther, grand­fa­ther, “BoBo” and friend and is deeply missed by many.

In ad­di­tion to his par­ents, he was pre­ceded in death by his brothers, Allen and Larry Pin­der and step­fa­ther, Wil­liam Mar­shall, all of Port Penn.
