1. WBCC Public Relations Cliff Anderson died….by Martin Peeters, WBCC Focal PointThe following message I received this week from Nancy Anderson, Cliff’ s wife:
To Cliff’s dear WBCC friends, I want to let you know the sad but not unexpected news that Cliff died two days ago, March 15, peacefully and at home. I am attaching a copy of the obituary. All of you meant so much to Cliff, sharing his passion for coins and especially bi-metallics. Our son will be the custodian of Cliff’s coins, and at a later time he may be contacting you about dispersal of the coins. Sadly, Nancy
--Remark WBCC Focal Point:
Although we could expect this sad news, it was a shock for us to hear that Cliff died. As I told you, Cliff was more than just a coin-friend. Member of the WBCC from the beginning and a collector with passion for the coins but more for his friends.
He was a special friend, always there when he could help you or advise. We will remember him and safe the good memories we have about him
--Remark Rod Sell, WBCC Webmaster
I am very sorry to hear of Cliff's passing.
He will be missed. In the past when ever I had a question on tranport or transit tokens I would ask Cliff as he always could find the answer. In the future I will always think of him when I get these questions.
--Remark Michael Ayrapetov, USA
I know Cliff about 12 years. He was a wonderful person and great collector. Two times he was in our appartment. Last time he gave my mother flowers and she was very happy. He was a great gentleman. He gave me very good adwices not only abou collecting, but about life too. Memory about Cliff I will keep in my heart all my life.

Cliff was a fantastic friend, he willl be missed but left his influence with us.
