Keith was born in Morristown to the late Terence and Lee. After graduating from Morris Knolls, he attended Montclair State and William Paterson. He settled in Denville where he was blessed with two daughters. In 1980 he joined the Denville Police Department where he proudly served this community. Keith loved being a cop. He taught DARE to over 1200 students and was proud of this important work. In 1998, he married Susan Tierney and was smitten. Keith was blessed again, as Susan had two little ones. The family blended and Keith and Susan worked hard to give the kids a comfortable home and life.
Keith donated much of his time to the Boy Scouts and was fortunate to spend time at the Philmont Scout Ranch and attend the National Jamboree one year. He was kind and good hearted and always saw the best in others. Although we are saddened by his passing, we take comfort in knowing he is at peace and watching over his family with love and pride.
He leaves beautiful memories to his wife Susan of over 20 years; his children Anne and Bethany Clifford and Ryan Tierney ( Jodie Kunkel) and Kaitlyn Tierney (Jamie Berlin); his siblings Diane Clifford (Jeff Howard) and Brian Clifford (Debora); his nieces and nephews Terry and Robyn Clifford Howard and Allie and Jenny Nostrand; his sister in law Joy Nostrand; and many more dear relatives, friends, colleagues and neighbors.
