An amazing man left us Father’s Day, June 21, 2015. Cliff English, age 77, passed away at Hock Family Pavilion Hospice in Durham, NC after a very brief encounter with cancer.
A memorial service is planned for Sunday, August 2 at 2:30 p.m. in Peace Dining Room on the Luther College Campus in Decorah. A family mass at Grace Episcopal Church will precede this.
His family requests no flowers. Memorials may be directed to Luther College Department of Sociology, National Alliance on Mental Illness, Hock Family Pavilion Hospice, or Friends of Pool No. 9 (Lansing).

Many of his formative years included adventures that probably led him to the field of sociology. Graduating from Inkster High School in 1955, being the free spirit he was, he attempted college and a few occupations before becoming an insurance claims adjuster.
