Obituary for Clifford Gordon "Cliff" Paulgaard

Clifford Gordon "Cliff"  Paulgaard
Clifford Gordan Paulgaard was born September 8, 1935. He was the fourth born in a family of five boys to Gustav and Magna Paulgaard.

Clifford attended Bodo school until the end of grade 11. He was fifteen years of age, as he skipped a grade.

Clifford married Norma Goodman on November 7, 1959. They were married 58 and a half years; together they had four children, Bruce, Cheryl, Janice, and Rodney.

Clifford had a strong passion for farming. He had a vision for his farm, but he believed that in life we live by faith and trust. He taught his family that God is in control and only He knows the big picture. The changes in farming he encountered during his lifetime were incredible. He amazed all of us by how well he adapted to and was able to use even the most up-to-date technology.

Cliff was known as the number one combine operator. He was the combine whisperer. He also enjoyed driving the sprayer and seeing the cows grazing in the pasture.

Cliff and Norma were involved in IAEA, an international exchange program that saw numerous trainees from many different countries come to work on their farm. They kept in contact throughout the years - many have come back for return visits to Canada and Cliff and Norma have travelled to their homelands as well. Several have told us about the respect they developed for Cliff and how much they learned working for him.

Cliff loved his family - he was proud of each and every family member and would often tear up when thinking of them.

Cliff and Norma were fortunate to be able to travel extensively over the years. Their last trip was November, 2017.

In 2016 Clifford was diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma - a type of Non-Hodgkins lymphoma. He was out combining this last fall after completing his full cycle of chemotherapy and radiation. Cliff never really retired but his cancer returned and forced his hand. He tried his best to overcome it, undergoing further chemotherapy, but it wasn’t in God’s plan. He passed away peacefully at home on May 31, 2018.

Cliff will forever be remembered and dearly missed by his loving wife, Norma; daughters, Cheryl (Bernie) and Janice (Bruce); son, Rod (Joanne); grandchildren, Derek, Lance, Brittany, Natasha (Patrick), Sheldon, Kyle and Shelby; great-grandson, Blake; sisters-in-law Adeline, Carol and Beryl; numerous nieces and nephews, as well as many extended relatives and friends.

Cliff was predeceased by his son, Bruce; parents, Gustav and Magna; in-laws, Lloyd and Helen; brothers, Palmer, Oscar (Marlene), Elmer and Harold; brother-in-law, Harold.
