He is survived by his wife, Jeanne, son, R.J., and brothers, Harold and Dennis, as well as several nieces and nephews. He was pre-deceased by his parents, Jake and Mary Oberlander; and eldest brother, Elmer, who encouraged him to apply for the NROTC program in college. All four served in the Navy. Cliff, designated as a Naval Flight Officer, had his wings pinned on at their wedding. He met his wife in December 1960, and married her on May 13, 1961, at the (old) Naval Chapel at Mainside. His duty stations included Glynco, GA; Norfolk, VA; Bermuda; Jacksonville, FL; Patuxent River, MD; Vietnam, and San Diego, CA.
After leaving the Navy, Cliff was employed with the Office of Management and Budget in Washington, D.C., for 23 years until he retired in 1992. Upon retirement, he and Jeanne came back to the Pensacola area. Cliff was a member of Westwood Christian Church where they were charter members and he was a deacon, member of the Worship Committee, and choir as well as various other committees.
Through the years, Cliff and Jeanne have maintained close contact with their treasured friends from the Navy.
