Clifford “Cliff” L. Belvin, 57, passed away Thursday, November 8, 2018 at Ashton Creek Health and Rehabilitation Center, Fort Wayne. Born in Goshen, he was the son of Clifford and Maudie (Rigsby) Belvin, both survive. Cliff married his wife Sharon on October 13, 1984. Together they raised four children. Cliff worked as a car salesman which was the ideal occupation for him, he loved cars! Cliff would spend hours on the phone and internet searching for G.M. muscle cars. Along with friends and family he would rescue them and restore them. His goal was to make them as original as possible. He had a terrific eye for detail. He once said, “I am one car away from pure happiness.” Cliff could tell a great story. He would capture your attention and he wasn’t happy until you were laughing with him. Cliff loved his family and friends and never forgot a face or name. He was blessed with many longtime friends and a very large extended family that he cherished. Cliff loved to travel with his wife Sharon. He always found great peace in the Smoky Mountains.

He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Sharon; children, Amanda (Karl) Zimmerman of New Haven, Michael (Ashley) Bremer of Monroeville, Cory (Jennifer) Belvin of Fort Wayne; and Emily (James) Belvin of Pearland, TX; and six grandchildren that he absolutely adored; his puppy, Tilly that will miss their daily walks and the songs he would sing to her; brothers, Kevin (Kathy) Rowe, Kirk Rowe, and Todd Belvin. He was also blessed with a host of nieces and nephews, each one very special to him.
