November 28, 1955 – November 23, 2010
With profound sadness, we announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband and father, Clifford Reitzel, on November 23, 2010. Cliff was born in Edmonton on November 28, 1955 to Vernon and Mary Reitzel. He is survived and lovingly remembered by his wife Pat of twenty-five years, his daughters Lindsay and Deanna, his brother Gordon, sister Diane (Art), and brother Ron (Miriam), along with several nieces and nephews.
He graduated from NAIT in 1976 with a diploma in Electronic Engineering Technology. After moving to Calgary in 1995, he later attended DeVry University where he received his Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology graduating “Magna Cum Laude”.
Cliff had an irreplaceable sense of humour that will be deeply missed and never forgotten. His two main passions in life were his family, and electronics. He was often behind the video camera recording everything special in his family’s and friends lives. In his spare time, his special skills were put to use in the workshop, where he enjoyed the challenge of taking things apart, repairing them, or creating something new. The activities he enjoyed most were anything to do with science fiction, game nights, reading, and camping.
