Obituary for Clifton B. Jackson, Sr.

Clifton Bernard Jackson Sr. was born on September 23, 1972 at Forest Hills Hospital in East Cleveland, Ohio.
He attended East Cleveland Schools, including Shaw High School and had many friends who affectionately referred to him as “Cool Cliff” because of his cool, calm, laid back personality. Cliff gave his life to Christ at an early age and was baptized by his father Reverend Peter O. Jackson. Cliff loved his family, friends and most of all his children.
For over 10 years Cliff worked in the transportation industry. For the last several years he worked with the family business of B&M Bar-B-Que and Catering where he assisted in many different forms. He was well liked by all that had the opportunity to work with him.
Cliff truly enjoyed being around his friends and family. In addition to his siblings, he was particularly close to several of his younger cousins, who looked up to Cliff as more of a big brother. He also had a love for music, especially rap and for fashion. There was never a time or place that Cliff would be where some kind of music was in the background, all while wearing his Polo. His favorite sayings were “what’s up” and “I’m good”.
After a long illness, Cliff departed this life on May 21, 2018. Preceding him in death are his maternal uncle, Wiley Tubbs Jr. and paternal uncle, Sylvester James. In his home going, he leaves in mourning his mother and father Patricia A. Jackson and Reverend Peter O. Jackson; his grandparents Wiley and Sally Tubbs; his wife of some 14 years Crystal Jackson, his sons Anthony J McNeal Jr. and Clifton B. Jackson Jr. sisters, Constance A. Kreamier (Portland, Oregon), Tracy M. Jackson, Rachael L. Jackson and brother, Nicholas C. Jackson (Crystal); Cliff also leaves a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends to cherish his memory.
