Clifford Leo Birdsinger of Euless, Texas, was called to his heavenly home on January 6, 2018. He will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. "Pop" was born on April 6, 1947, in Schagticoke, New York to George and Lila Birdsinger. Cliff was raised on a dairy farm in Upstate New York. In 1966, he joined the United States Army and served valiantly in Vietnam. When he came back stateside, Cliff was stationed at Ft. Belvior in Northern Virginia. He met and married Sheryl Hawkins and adopted her two children, Shawn and Dawnya. After having two more children, Shane and Tammi, the family moved to Texas in 1974. The Birdsinger family welcomed their last addition, Brett, in 1975. With his family, Cliff grew roots in the Euless community and was loved and trusted by countless people who came in contact with him. Beloved by family, neighbors, coworkers, and fellow members of his church congregation, Cliff always carried a Servant's heart, an incredible work ethic, a welcoming demeanor, and a witty sense of humor that made others love being in his presence. Cliff was a joyful member of his church, "New Lives for Old Grace Fellowship" in Euless, Texas and loved Jesus Christ with all of his heart. This was best demonstrated by some of his last words. On the night before being called home, he was told that he might be joining the Lord soon. To which he smiled and replied simply, "Yep, can't wait!" God is good. Cliff is survived by his loving wife, Sheryl "Cookie" Birdsinger of Euless, Texas; son, Shawn Birdsinger and his fiancÚ, Rhonda Sparks of Bridgeport, Texas; daughter, Dawnya Morrison and her husband, Scott Morrison of Southlake, Texas; son, Shane Birdsinger and his wife, Daphne Birdsinger of Herndon, Virginia; daughter, Tammi Guest and her husband, Kevin Guest of Arlington, Texas; son, Brett Birdsinger and his wife, Lori Birdsinger of Lubbock, Texas.
