Gregory Otis Clift, 51, of Saddlebrooke, Mo., joined his savior on Friday, November 27, 2015 in his home after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born October 20, 1964 in Wichita, Kan. He was a 1983 graduate of Edmond High School in Edmond, Okla., and a 1987 graduate of Oklahoma State University. He then joined his parents in starting a computer business, PC Net, in Springfield, Mo., in the fall of 1987. After his parents retirement in 2000 he continued to expand and grow the business. In 2012 Greg began the battle with brain cancer. Through the efforts of an incredibly dedicated and loyal group of employees, PC Net continues to prosper and made him very proud. Greg was a supporter and former board member of the Boys and Girls Club, sponsored a team annually in the Shootout for Autism, a member and past-president of the Springfield Executive Breakfast Club and life member of Oklahoma State University Alumni Association. His greatest joy in life was spending time with his children and family, especially at the farm. He loved fly fishing, float trips, hunting and conservation with his brother, parents and friends. In the past 18 months, Greg had completed two major items on his “Bucket List:” Fishing for peacock bass on the Amazon where he landed a 16 pound bass, and completing his new home which he was able to live in for two months. He is survived by a son, Caleb H. Rich and wife Mariah, Harrah, Okla.; his nine month old grandson, Elijah Gregory Rich; a daughter, Lily Clift, Springfield, Mo.; his parents, Gary and Micki Clift, Shell Knob, Mo.; a brother, Scott Clift and wife Rhonda, Wellston, Okla.; two nieces, Sarah and Alisha; two nephews, Kyle and Brandon, and many other relatives and friends. Visitation will be noon until 1 p.m., Saturday, December 5, with a celebration of life service following at 1 p.m. in J.D. Lee and Sons Funeral Home, Rogersville, Mo. The family requests memorial donations to the Boys and Girls Club, Shootout for Autism, American Cancer Society, or the National Brain Tumor Society.
