Community Recreation & Education Commission Member: Cliff Burkhart Passing

February 10, 2021 12:00 AM

Any of us who attended Lakewood events remember the face of Cliff Burkhart, a presence for keeping Lakewood students and families safe and engaged whether it was football, basketball, election voting, and many other Lakewood activities.  Cliff was a current member of the Lakewood Community Recreation & Education Commission.

Cliff Burkhart peacefully passed away late last Thursday, February 4. 
After working for the Lakewood Refuse Department, then working for the City of Westlake, Cliff returned and was a faithful event staff worker for many District and Recreation events.  A tireless community activist and Lakewood Senior Softball player, Cliff remained involved with the City he held so dearly.

Private family services and interment will be held at Sunset Memorial Park where he joins his wife for eternal rest.
