Clive created a family that he had always dreamed of, passionately worked the fields for as many years as he physically could and, most importantly, was one of the happiest people in the world. He carried himself with integrity and had an amazing character. He was super outgoing, always joking around and would talk to literally anyone who crossed his path. As a result, he was loved by anyone who had the privilege to meet him.
