Obituary

Clifford Orlando McCrimmon age 55,  of 755 McKoy Town Rd., Cameron, NC transitioned into eternal rest on Saturday, August 29, 2020, at Moore Regional Hospital. 

The eldest of three children, Clifford Orlando McCrimmon, was born on April 9,1965 to the late Roy Randolph McCrimmon and Reatha McKoy McCrimmon. On Saturday, August 29, 2020 after a long battle of sickness, Clifford transitioned from his earthly life at FirstHealth Hospital in Moore County, North Carolina. 

Clifford was a native of Harnett County, and was reared in Cameron, NC. He was a student of Harnett County Schools where he last attended Western Harnett High and was an avid basketball player. His classmates and former teachers would remember him as a productive and intelligent student who was cool, calm, and fun to be around. He was a member of the Church of God in Christ, Cameron, NC which he attended since childhood and sang in the youth choir. He was an active member of the 4-H Club that was led by his grandmother, the late Warnie Mae McKoy which he enjoyed being a part of. He was a hardworking young man who was employed by Power-Swain Chevrolet of Fayetteville, NC for 15 years. Prior to the decline of  his health, he was employed with Wyeth Pharmaceuticals of Sanford, NC for 5 years.

Clifford will forever be remembered for being a loving and dependable son, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend often putting others before himself, while enjoying life, and helping others. Having a special place in his heart for the youth, he would often adopt families, sow seeds, and sponsor various  programs aimed at helping youth academically and emotionally to excel in life. He loved seeing youth live up to their highest potential. He also enjoyed cooking, and entertaining his family and friends. He had a love for fast cars and attended race tracks throughout NC and surrounding states. Clifford was a comedian who loved to make others laugh, with a great sense of humor and a jovial personality. He could  brighten up anyone's day with a joke, hospitality, or his special way of giving. He met no strangers and would make his home available to those who were in need. Clifford made his presence known no matter where he was or who he was around.
