In Loving Memory

Clinton Clifford Cline

October 21, 1934 – February 14, 2019

Clinton Clifford Cline passed away on Thursday, February 14, 2019 near his home in Northglenn, Colorado. He was preceded in death by his son Mark. He is survived by his children, Teresa, Justin, and Alison, his stepdaughter Masha, and his seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Born and raised in Illinois, Clint served in the United States Army for five years and earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from California State University. He led a fulfilling and highly respected career as Professor of Printmaking at the University of Colorado in Boulder for nearly 40 years. He was a gifted artist and educator, and he impacted the lives of countless students and faculty members. In addition to being a master printmaker, he was a competitive bass fisherman and a passionate cook. Clint would offer absolutely anyone a warm bed and a home-cooked meal, no matter their background. While he sometimes had a rough exterior, inside he was a gentle and charitable soul. Even in hard times, he could always bring out a smile with his sharp sense of humor and his wit. This truly one-of-a-kind character will be dearly missed by his family, friends, students,
and colleagues.
