Clifford L. McCambridge, 86, peacefully passed away on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at the Aurora Medical Center in Grafton.

Clifford was born on May 12, 1934 to the late William and Ella (nee Moore) McCambridge in Fargo, North Dakota. On May 28, 1955, he married the love of his life, Darlene Mehle, and together raised a beautiful family. Clifford worked in the Pabst Brewery as a maltster, where he was a long-time employee. He loved to perform and play music, whether it was being a part of a band or stringing his guitar in his free time. He will be sorely missed by all those that knew and loved him.

Those Clifford leaves behind to cherish his memory include his wife of 65 years, Darlene; three children, Toni Kreif, Colleen (Scott) Deeter, and Brian (Jennifer Wenzel) McCambridge; a sister, Sandra Davis; two sisters-in-law, Sharon McCambridge and Kathy McCambridge; 13 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren, and many other nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.

In addition to his parents, Clifford is preceded in death by two children, Wendy Wendtland and Kelly McCambridge; a son-in-law, Butch Kreif; four brothers, Tom (Roz) McCambridge, Don (Nancy) McCambridge, Pat McCambridge, and Mike McCambridge; and a brother-in-law, Chuck Davis.

In honor of Clifford's wishes, private services will be held.
