Predeceased by his parents, Charles D. and Esther (Wertz) Radcliffe, and his wife of 59 years, Helen (Lee) Radcliffe, he is survived by his son, James Radcliffe, and daughter-in-law, Susan Radcliffe of Yardville; his daughter, Margaret Laux, and son-in-law, Fred Laux, of Hamilton; his grandson, Matthew Laux, and two granddaughters, Alicia Laux and Kaitlyn Radcliffe; and two great-grandsons, Austin and Gaibrial.
There is a bridge of memory.
From earth to heaven above.
It keeps you always near us,
it's called the bridge of love.
May you always walk in sunshine
and God's love around you flow,
for happiness you gave us,
no one will ever know.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you did not go alone,
for part of us went with you.
The day God called you home.
