Condolences and our prayers go to the Normans from Patty, Tracie and Holly. So sorry to hear of Clifton's passing. May your hearts be abundant with peace and strength.

Cliff was a great guy and I am sure a great Dad and Husband. I know you will miss him but know what a great influence he was to so many of us at Savannah Electric. You are in my prayers.

Chris Morris, Milledgeville , Ga

I first met Cliff at Savannah Electric where we worked together for many years. Cliff always came to work with a broad smile and a hearty “Good Morning.” One day Cliff asked if he could help me with some of his wood working equipment he had. We met at his house and Cliff did help me that day with planning my lumber using some very unique machinery. The one thing I think about from time to time is how I admired the detail of his craftsmanship in the clocks he built. The patience and artistry he had was remarkable and I will never forget Cliff.
