Cliff helped me get into the FBI in 1972 ! My father owned a Sohio gas station in Toledo, Ohio as did his father.

I had learned from his father that Cliff was in the FBI and later as a Toledo Police Officer I called Cliff and asked him what the procedure was to become an FBI Agent. He informed me of the process and stated he would make a phone call to the Cleveland FBI office to tell them I was applying.

I joined the FBI in 1973 after Cliff's help and over the years kept in touch. The weekend after he was killed, I was going to have him over to my house in Va. for dinner as he was coming to the FBI Academy for training.

Checking over the years I have found his career to be awesome ! I was lucky enough to attend the presentation in Judge Webster's office of a plaque from President Reagan and the US.

There I met most of his family and found them to be awesome also.

I wish I could have met you, Roger Browning
