One condolence on “HANSON, Clifford Albert”

  1. I didn’t know Cliff had died.My association with Cliff was as Secretary of the Rubber Workers union.
    Cliff was a straight up guy with principles.Teo things I remember vividly.
    1- I asked a question about where I could go to learn something and Cliff replied ” son,you’re in the school of hard knocks,only fools make the same mistake twice”.
    2 — Frank Mc Nulty went soft on some government policy and Cliff said ” He’s a part time socialist,only when it suits.”
    I respected the man.
    I remember when he had a mild heart attack and when he got back on his feet I asked what the doctors said and he replied ” they told me to stop drinking brandy and to stop smoking”
    When I asked him what he thought of that he said,” **** that— I will die the way I want to”
    To this day I refer to that as the Hanson Theory.
    I reckon he earnt his place in the world and will be missed but remembered often.
