He was born the son of Harry and Minnie Marie (Kohnlechner) Peterson. He grew up on the farm and farmed with his parents.

He farmed for several years and then was employed for Burlington Northern Railroad where he retired after 32 years of service.

Clifford loved having his grandchildren and great-grandchildren with him as much as possible. He always said he wished he had as much energy as they did. He always liked staying busy doing things for other people, plowing gardens, mowing lawns and whatever anyone needed done. He traveled a lot for the railroad so when he came home on weekends, he really enjoyed his time with his family. He really enjoyed playing cards with his fellow railroad employees, of course, in their spare time.

He was preceded in death by his parents, three brothers and two sisters.

Services were conducted at the Methodist church in Hopeville, Iowa on Friday, February 29, 2008 with Rev. Dwayne Henrichs officiating. Special musical selections were "In The Garden" and "The Long Black Train."
