Clifford Charles Blaney was born Sept. 1, 1929, at Flat top, west of Lusk. He died February 1 at the Veteran's Hospital in Cheyenne at the age of 53. He spent his life in and around the Lusk area, except for a seven-month tour of service with the U.S. Army during 1951. He was discharged for medical reasons.

Following his discharge, he returned to Lusk and worked at various jobs in the community. In 1953, he met and married Clarabelle Smith and they were the parents of seven children. On November 25, 1981, he and Betty J. Stull were married.
