Clifford J Fleenor, 69, Lake Winnebago, Missouri went home to be with the Lord with his loving family surrounding him on September 5, 2021. Cliff was born in Montgomery, AL on September 21, 1951, and he graduated from Germantown High School in 1969. He founded Bordner Roofing Company in 1987, and successfully lead that business until his retirement in 2019. He counted it a joy to build this business with his wife and two brothers.
Those that knew Cliff knew he modeled humility, compassion and a love for others. His faith in Christ, his Savior, shined through his words and his actions. Cliff had a way of helping those he met experience gracious hospitality, his undivided attention and abundant generosity. He also knew the importance of reflecting the inward change of his heart to a watching world. He followed the motto of “dressing for success” because the Gospel clearly commands us to put on the full armor of God daily. He knew there is a way which leads to life and a way which leads to death, and it was Cliff’s wish that no one leave this earth without hearing the Gospel message. John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Two verses crucial to Cliff’s personal faith are Ephesians 2: 8-9 “For it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of your works, lest anyone should boast.” Galatians 3:6 “just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”” He surrendered his life to Christ his Savior on March 12, 1972 and began his personal journey of sanctification. Today we celebrate his entry into the final phase of his faith – his glorification.
He is survived his wife, Sally Fleenor, his sons: Jeremiah & Emily Fleenor and Adam & Sarah Hardinger, and his daughters: Jennifer & Osborne Dayo, Keely & Jonathan Bechtel and Tatum & Rob Poettgen; their 17 grandchildren and Cliff’s two brothers: Bud & Sherry Fleenor and Charley & Shawnna Fleenor.
