Clifford W. "Cliff" Ruhl, 70, of Heister Valley Road, Richfield, died suddenly at his home with his companion, Janet, by his side. He was transported to Geisinger Medical Center by ambulance where he later went to be with his Lord and Savior on Feb. 10, 2017.
Cliff was the son of Clifford Sr. and Helen Ruhl, of Isle of Que in Selinsgrove, where Cliff spent most of his life.
Cliff loved his family and friends dearly. His youngest grandson, Bodhi was his pride and joy and could bring loads of happiness and comfort to him.
Cliff proudly served in the Army. He was a military police officer and an Army boxing champion from 1966-1967.
Cliff loved "the little things in life" as he would say. He loved to hunt and fish with his sons and grandsons. He also loved all kinds of sports, especially when he was umpiring a game.
Clifford also had a love of music and with his own deep base voice would sing along, especially to our hymns.
Cliff also loved to be part of nature. A quiet walk in the woods and listening to the stream flowing. He enjoyed watching the seasons change. He also loved to watch the birds at the feeder and enjoyed watching for angels in the clouds with his companion. Cliff enjoyed the beauty of the flowers or even the weeds.
He really enjoyed his new life in the country. He went from a "City Slicker" to a "Proud Country Boy" enjoying all the peace and quiet and beauty of country life.
Cliff loved his "Country Queen," Janet, and Mikie Mike and Katie. Rest in peace my love. Fly free with the angels. Until we meet again.
