The Family of Kenneth “Ken” Cluff would like to share their eternal loving memory of their Husband, Father, Brother, Grandfather, Engineer and Scouter. Ken returned home to his Heavenly Father and Savior on August 6th, 2020. He passed away surrounded in the comfort of his family.

Shortly after getting engaged to Helen Wing Cluff, Ken was drafted to the United States Army. He served for two years in Fort Greely, AK then returned home and was sealed to his sweetheart in the Salt Lake Temple on February 10th, 1960. Ken’s family included his wife, Helen, one daughter, and two sons: Allison Marguerite and Kenneth Alan Butts-Cluff, Kennen Lee and Jennifer Cluff, Richard Mathew and Susan Cluff.

Ken had two brothers and one sister: William “Bill” Cluff, Thomas W. Cluff, and Linda Marie Cluff Edwards. He had Eight grandchildren: Ben Mathew Cluff, Amanda Rose Cluff, Riley Alan Cluff, Meghan Heather Cluff, Nathan Mathew Cluff, Braden Lee Cluff, Kelli Ann Cluff, and Jillian Gale Cluff.

Ken’s unconditional love touched numerous lives during the service in the Boy Scouts of America and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He has held numerous church callings throughout his life. For over 30 years he shared his Engineering, and product development talents with Valtek/Flowserve and Wing Enterprises (Little Giant Ladder).

Ken had a great love for his family, and the great outdoors. During his life, his free time was spent with his family and Scouts on hiking trips from the High Uintas and Mt. Timpanogos to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and all points in between. He loved taking his family and scouts snowmobiling and boating to Lake Powell and Flaming Gorge.

Ken’s determination to make a difference was reflected in his devotion to Varsity Scouting in the Boys Scouts of America. He has served on Staff at numerous Wood Badge and All-Star Courses and has influenced the lives of many Scouts and Scouters for the good. He is a recipient of the Silver Beaver award and “The Rock of Squaw Peak” from the Squaw Peak District.

Ken also enjoyed woodworking, photography, fishing, ATV riding, and writing his family history. He loved teaching his grandchildren how to draw and build crafts. He always made every effort to teach his family the practical things in life and to enjoy every day along the way. He found peace and fulfillment in doing his family history and genealogy in his later years.

Kenneth Clarence Cluff will be honored in a private service on August 13th, 2020 at Walker Sanderson Funeral Home. For those attending there will be a family visitation Thursday morning from 9:00-9:45 am

To My Dad

He always said that I was his favorite daughter to which I would respond, “Dad I’m your only daughter.” He was such a tease. I think this is how he showed his love. He also was not ever someone to withhold his opinions which made things hard sometimes. With the good comes the bad, but people are made perfectly imperfect as my daughter Meghan would say. While we had our differences, in the end the good out weighted the bad. I will be forever grateful for all the things you gave me dad.

You gave me my name. Today, Allison is a common name but it was not at the time. My dad always the innovator. I have always held my name close to me, even when the kids at school would tease me because it was so unique. I treasured it because you gave it to me. You would call me Allie and it always brought a smile to my face because it was our thing. I always felt your love when you called me Allie Dad.

You shared your talents with me, of which there were many. You were a rare combination of an engineer and an artist. I remember the murals you would paint on the big front window of our house. The neighbors would say, “that’s amazing.” Like you were Dad.

You gave me many happy memories together and you taught me so much. I am thankful for all the fun family times camping, boating, snowboarding and especially AVTing. I will always remember that time we went ATVing together when I came to visit you and Mom a couple of years ago.

He said, “are you going back to the mall today, or would you like to come up to the highlands with me?”

Even though I grew up in Utah I did not know the mountains well so this was a frightening prospect to me. Nevertheless, I said yes because I knew I could trust you to keep me safe. I do not regret that day and the memories we made. I will hold them close.

That day we went so high we could touch the sky. I could see why you loved nature and ATVing so much. That day was magical.

Coming down was another story, it was a little perilous but trust in you to keep us safe was well placed because you did. I knew I could always count on you.

We ended the day having dinner and a good long talk. The kind that you hold with you forever—I will always remember that day and treasure it. I am so glad that I said yes to that opportunity.

I will also treasure that time we made a quilt together, team working to bring it to fruition. I am proud of the finished product that we able to make for those scouts.

You were a painter. I am excited to try to do justice that the last painting that you worked on. I plan to paint happy trees to finish it with Amanda’s help. Another memory for the books.

As good as you were at creating memories, you were as good at memorializing them. You were a talented photographer, and never one to let memories be forgotten. This is one of the many reasons you will never be forgotten.

I am very thankful for that last long talk we had. I felt your love. While we were going through a rough patch we forgave and forgot. I think you knew that your time was coming. You did the best you could and that’s all that one can ever ask from their parents. You were always there when I needed you—when push came to shove.

As I have thought about your passing dad, I saw in my mind that you are in a place of peace and out of physical pain. As one who thinks in pictures as I do, I could see you very happy and at peace with your family on the other side of the vail. With your family in paradise! I could see you being reunited with your mom. This reunion a very emotional and inspired one. She was taken from this world in your youth and I feel you missed her kind heart and soft voice very much. I am told in her biography that she was known as a sweet and kind women—I felt your joy to see your mother again.

You gave me the gift of a happy childhood with your fun and creative spirit. You gave me the gift of creativity. You gave me the gift of your love and your wisdom—even when I didn’t want it. Thank you for being a good dad and I’ll be always be thankful that I got to be your favorite daughter.

Until we meet again Dad, be at peace with great and everlasting love—your favorite daughter Allie.

Ken was a great guy. He was my boss when I started in the Valtek Engineering Dept back in 1979. He was always willing to help and teach. His engineering sketches were absolute works of art. Thanks for everything Ken!!! - Cory Jensen
