Clifford R. “Clif” Warwick, 78 of Lake Mills, passed away on Friday, November 19, 2021, at Aurora Medical Center in Summit.
Clif was born June 21, 1943, in Milwaukee, the son of Lowell and Eunice (Mueller) Warwick. His father passed away when he was 2 years old, and his mother remarried Walter South shortly after. Clif graduated from South Milwaukee High School and served his country in the Navy for some time. He married Linda Reid and had 2 children before divorcing. Clif worked a variety of jobs, such as driving school bus and working in Dynacare Labs in logistics. While working at Dynacare, Clif met the love of his life Sherry and the two were married February 20, 2009. Sherry brought happiness to Clif’s life, especially through her love of all things Disney. They spent a lot of time at Disneyland and were even married on one of these trips. Faith was important to Sherry and Clif, and they attended Real Hope Church in Lake Mills. The couple shared 12 wonderful years of marriage together until her death in October of 2021. Clif was a perfectionist and man of many talents such as quilting for Rainbow Hospice, crocheting, and knitting. A jokester, Clif could always make people laugh with his sense of humor and was rarely seen without a smile on his face. He will be deeply missed.
