In 1954 Cliff enlisted in the United States Navy and served for four years
After leaving the Navy, Cliff worked briefly in the oilfield and at the Texaco Refinery in Casper. In 1959 Cliff went to work at Glenrock Coal running heavy equipment and the dragline. Cliff’s career at Glenrock Coal lasted for 34 years until his retirement in 1992.
Cliff was a very kind man with a big and loving heart. He was an excellent carpenter and worked closely with his father, Lyle Hunt, building numerous structures around Glenrock including the drug store.
Also, in 1959 Cliff married Bonita L. Konrath and the two have been inseparable for over 60 years. As a couple they built several apartment units and remodeled numerous homes in and around Glenrock. Cliff also built their “barn” home in Glenrock and a cabin on Union Pass outside Dubois, Wyoming.
Their union was blessed with three children, Ginger, Brenda, and Lyle.
