    I remember Cliff as a child, always joking around, laughing, helping others. I didn’t see him much in his adult life, although I met his beautiful wife, I never got to meet his children or grandchildren. I simply wanted to stop in and say, my prayers and love got to all the Light Family! From Mary Etta, to Jay, Cliff, Margolise, to Tressi and his children. I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I had more words to say, just know my heart breaks too. Cliff was like family to me, always was.

    I feel privileged to have gotten to know Cliff.
    He was definitely a rare guy a one of a kind. Very big hearted and didn’t mind helping anyone. He would always have a smile and having fun at work. I am so thankful and greatfull for EVERYTHING he has done for my family.
    I will miss seeing him.Things will not be the same but
    I will always be so grateful for the 8years he was in my life and the love he showed me and family. I really know God has a special place in heaven for the ones like him. He always was bragging about his wife and his children. I’m so sorry for the pain they are feeling
    right now. My family and I pray that they find peace and know that with the love Cliff has for them all,he will be with them everyday. Cliff will be missed beyond words can say.

    always have a place in our hearts. You had a special kindness for people. Rest easy knowing your family will always be loved and cared for. We miss you and love you.

    My love and heart goes out to the Light family. I grew up with all of them at Riverbend Apartments. We shared great memories, laughter, getting into trouble, hanging out at the pool, running all over the place! My memory of Cliff was his extensive smiles, and kindness. Rest now in peace Cliff, for you are now with your father. Heaven has gained a beautiful angel!

    God Bless!

    Cliff was loved by his Aunt Linda Lou and Uncle JC Hobbs of Bristol , Tn. His cousins from there as well. What fun they had when we lived not too far away. Due to being a son of a State Trooper, Cliff lived all over Tennessee. The THP mourns his passing as well. πŸ’œπŸ’œβ™οΈ
