Our brother, nephew, cousin Clifford Limpy, Jr. passed away on March 12, 2021 in Los Angeles, California. Jr. living life on his terms. He lived in many places over the span of his life. From Denver to Albuquerque, NM, San Francisco, CA where he attended culinary arts school, and most recently New York City and Los Angeles where he passed.
Jr. read constantly and if anyone had a question, he could rattle off information that he had read about in the thousands of books, news sources and magazines he loved. He spoke several languages including Cheyenne taught by his Grandma Annie Shoulderblade and was self taught in Crow, Italian, German and Mexican dialect. We all loved his taste in music, starting with the Supremes and moving on to Sade.
Jr. loved to look and dress sharp, very particular, and specific about his likes and dislikes. His clothing, hair and grooming were meticulous. Nothing ever out of place.
His sense of humor was flawless as well. He was good for a great belly laugh describing people and things with the most hilarious descriptions and explanations of why.
He served on the USS Cappadano traveling to many ports in the world. Clifford Limpy Jr. is an honorably discharged U.S. Navy Veteran, serving from 1982-1986
