Clifford Bernell Sweat, 40, passed away on April 22, 2021 in Juab county, in a tragic car accident. He was born the youngest of 7 children on February 19, 1981 in Ogden, UT to Steven B. and Linda K. Sweat. His family resided in Wendover Nevada/Utah.
In 1993, age 12, Clifford had gotten spinal meningitis. Doctors told his parents that his chances of surviving were remote, if he did make it he would have severe brain damage. Like always Clifford proved them wrong and within 72 hours he was off life support and out of intensive care. Clifford would grow up to have 5 kids of his own and resided in Wendover until 2016 when he moved to Hawaii. In 2018 he moved to Layton, Utah and then to Salt Lake City, Utah in 2021.
Clifford cared about everyone he met and loved by many. He would do anything for his family no matter what it would take, for he loved them truly. Clifford would play with the neighborhood kids and try to do block parties frequently. He enjoyed making others happy. He enjoyed his jokes (no matter how bad they were) and always being the class clown.
Clifford is survived by his 5 children, sons: Tryston S. Stappenbeck of Georgia, Chrystofer B. Sweat of Nevada, Jayden R. Sweat of Nevada; daughters: Sydney J. Thelander of Idaho, and Alexis D. Sweat of Utah; father, Steven B. Sweat of Nevada; mother, Linda K. Sweat of Nevada; brothers, Bryan D. Sweat of Nevada and Trenton G. Sweat of Nevada; sisters, Rhonda M. Sweat of New Mexico, and RaNae Deru of Utah. He was preceded in death by sister, Rhea M. Sweat and brother, Raymond E. Sweat.
For someone who meant so much and loved by all he knew who left behind a trail of tears and precious memories, too We loved the sunshine in his smile and kindness in his heart but heaven saw that he was tired which meant we had to part And now that it's his special day dear angels, hear our prayer please guard him with your gentle wings and tend him with great care For he was someone wonderful and words just can't convey how much we wish that he was here once more, with us today By Alexis D. Sweat
