Cliff was born in Kelliher, Saskatchewan to Elsie and Benny Vestby. He grew up on the family farm and eventually took over the running of the farm from his parents – a proud family who took great pride in their connection to the farmland and community.
Cliff liked to keep busy and was skilled in many trades: carpentry, mechanics, welding, construction, and metal work to name a few. He love to dance and spent many happy hours square dancing.
The family would like to extend a “Thank You” to the medical staff and Home Support workers for their kindness, care, and compassion during this difficult time. Special thanks goes out to Vi’s friends and neighbours for their help and thoughtfulness throughout Cliff’s illness and subsequent passing.
