Pelton, Clifford Neal

February 28, 1917 – June 7, 2015
Age 98 of Roseville, peacefully passed away June 7, 2015. A quiet, thoughtful man, Cliff lived a long, satisfying life. Having served as a naval mechanic in WWII, Cliff became an industrial engineer with a keen eye for detail. He retired from FMC in 1982. He enjoyed many interests, was an accomplished photographer, avid music collector, skilled guitarist, and a southpaw with a good fast ball. Late nights would find him playing with his favorite combo, entertaining the crowd. On Sunday morning he’d join church musicians bringing a bit of jazz on his electric guitar. His biscuits and gravy made the best breakfast you could eat. He will be missed by all, especially by his wife of 58 years, Eva, daughter Terrianne, daughter Anita, son Ken, and sons-in-law Kirk and Jim. His grandchildren Peter, John, Amy, Erica, and Max would like one more breakfast biscuit. His several great-grandchildren wish to have known him better. Visitation, Wednesday, June 10th, 2pm at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, 4101 Washington St NE, Columbia Hts. Service to follow at 3pm. In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to Our Lady of Peace Hospice, 2076 St. Anthony Ave, St. Paul, MN.
