Clifford Douglas Scharfenberg was born on November 21, 1940 and passed away July 1, 2019. He was born in the Preeceville Union Hospital, the tenth child of Herman and Hazel Scharfenberg. They lived on the family farm seven miles west of Endeavour where they farmed.
Clifford had a love for trapping, hunting, and the great outdoors. He was left with the responsibility of taking care of our mom and dad. He had made a promise to our dad to remain in the home and take care of them in their elderly years. He kept his promise and we as siblings are forever grateful for the care our parents received from him. He farmed, took care of the cattle and endless hours of work to keep everything running smoothly on the farm.
Clifford loved visitors, always very willing to stop for coffee and he served whatever cookies he could find to serve you. He would love if you brought along some baking to replenish his supply. He loved to talk and share his everyday findings. One of his most avid conversations was sharing about His Lord and Savior which he treasured… He could spend lots of time explaining his philosophy of life and how important it is to have a deep and everlasting faith in God.
We will truly miss him.
