Clifton ‘Cliff’ Howard McAuley

NORMAN — Clifton “Cliff” Howard McAuley, 83, of Norman, passed away peacefully Sunday, April 6, 2014, surrounded by his loving family. He was born Oct. 29, 1930, in Boston, to Clifton and Eleanor (Marino) McAuley and married Evelyn (Morton) on May 30, 1950.

Cliff’s more than 35-year work career was with Westinghouse in Boston and Staunton, Va., and then with York in Norman. His avocation, though, was his woodworking. He took immense satisfaction in this craft and made sure everyone close to him had at least one of his handmade specialties. Cliff had a great sense of humor and an engaging smile. Life to him was enjoying each and every day.

He was dearly loved and will be missed by his family and friends.

Cliff was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Evelyn of 58 years; and two brothers and a sister.

Cliff is survived by his sister, Judy Chesley; his three brothers, Bill, Ken and Frank; his five children: daughter, Donna Hendren and her husband Marty of California, son, Cliff McAuley and his wife Diana of Ohio, daughter, Debbie Kenney and her husband Tim of Norman, son, Jim McAuley and his wife Suzanne of Norman and son, Mark McAuley and his wife Cindy of California; his 18 grandchildren, Whitney Hendren, Taylor Vencill and husband Bryan, Cliff McAuley, Rosie McAuley, Jim McAuley and fiancee Cayce, Chris McAuley, Leslie Barrack, Tim Kenney and wife Mindy, William Kenney, Kathleen Miller and husband Jason, Suzanne Kenney and fiance Lance , Coleman McAuley, Mark McAuley Jr. and fiancee Kyra, Nicole McAuley, Taylor McAuley, Montana Borth, Preston McAuley and Aspen McAuley; and his eight great-grandchildren, Jennifer Barrack, Patrick Barrack, Josalyn Johnson, Jayden McAuley, Josh Johnson, Zachary Kenney, Owen Kenney and Harper McAuley.
