Clifford George Williams
August 24, 1915 - June 4, 2015
Clifford George Williams was born August 24, 1915 to Thomas and Phoebe Williams. Clifford was five when the family moved from Canada to Wheeler, Oregon. He was twelve when they bought land in Cottage Grove and started farming there. After growing up fast, he and his father farmed and logged. Clifford high climbed for other loggers, topped and helped rig the trees to log with. He also ran a wood yard before getting injured in 1951. The loss of his lower left leg didn’t seem to slow him down. Cliff had a love of horses and in 1948, helped start Cottage Grove’s Rodeo & Riding Club. He belonged to the Oregon Pleasure Walking Horse Club, and was one of the trail bosses. After moving to Redmond in 1963, he farmed, logged, worked construction and rode often. During retirement, horses took center stage. He enjoyed spending time attending and participating in Cutting Horse & Showmanship shows. He won many of those events, despite only having one leg.
Cliff and Irene were married in 1955. He has a son, Harvey, and a daughter, Vivian. A son, George Williams, passed away in 1987. Irene passed away in 1993. Cliff has five grandchildren, six great grandchildren, and eight great-great grandchildren.
With Irene and friends, he fished the lakes and spent many weeks riding the many trails during many seasons for many years. Doing what he loved most with who he liked best.
