Clifford William Tilley, age 55, passed away November 22, 2019, at his home in Topeka.

He was born in Marysville, on August 7, 1964. Cliff graduated from Valley Heights High School in 1982. He was a veteran of the United States Air Force and served in Operation Desert Storm. After serving nine years he went back to his hometown of Waterville. Eventually he started selling and detailing cars. He then owned the Jayhawk Bowl bowling alley in Marysville, where many cards were played, food was served and many lanes were bowled. In recent years he dabbled in buying storage units. He found many treasures and sold numerous items online. He was proud of his large number of grandfather clocks and there was not one that he was not able to fix.

He is survived by his wife Barb, six bonus children, six grandchildren, his parents James and Rhonda Tilley of Waterville, a sister Angie (Gil) Pfizenmaier of Green and many relatives and friends. Cliff was preceded in death by an infant brother Baby Tilley.

In lieu of funeral services, a private family service will be held at a later date.
