  • Mary and Dennis Lanz Cliff was a kind, wonderful man with a great sense of humor..I considered him my brother without the in-law added. Cliff came out to CA and AZ for many visits and we always had a great time. Lots of memories and many pictures. We stopped to visit with him last summer as we did every summer. We were very concerned when we tried to contact him the past few months with no luck. So glad his cousins were there for him. RIP Cliff, you will be missed. Mary and Dennis Lanz. (Brenda’s sister)
