Clifford E. Hendershot

July 7, 2016, Clifford E. Hendershot left this earth to meet our Lord and his wife in heaven. He finished his life as he lived it; well done and in perfect order. He made his way through this world as a servant, being useful and living each day with a purpose. He lived quietly and conservatively, without a need of praise or fanfare. He let you know what he didn't like, but was always a gentleman and grateful for your efforts. He never wanted to be a burden to others, and kept the trials he experienced late in life to himself. He will be greatly missed.   Read More »
