For several years Cliff had a favourite table at the seniors table tennis. I was priviliged to play with and against him many times. He could be an innovator which made for interesting play. He also resurfaced several bats with considerable skill as well as acquiring superior playing balls from China. Always ready to help people in need he endeared himself to many. Thank you for your friendship Cliff and well done good and faithful servant- Martin L Chalmers

Cliff was a treasured member of the Invercargill Table Tennis club where we played every week on a Friday morning. Not only did we enjoy his competitive playing but he became a good friend with a great sense of humour and we will always remember him. More importantly than that Cliff helped save Brian's life after he suffered a cardiac arrest while playing table tennis in May 2014. Along with others Cliff used his medical knowledge very effectively until the ambulance arrived and we will be forever indebted to him. We send to Cliff's family our very deepest sympathy and know he will be sadly missed by family and friends.

Hi Cliff
It has been a pleasure to have known you and worked with you during the last 48 years. I still remember all those discussions and advice at the operation table while we were operating and you were at the other end as the anesthetist.
