Clifford R. Schwartz

May 14, 1935 ~ November 13, 2020 (age 85)



Clifford R Schwartz, born May 14th, 1935 in Racine Wisconsin, died November 13, 2020 at the age of 85 in Morton Grove, IL., where he had lived for over 60 years. He married Joyce M Lehman in 1961, who preceded him in death, in 2003.  He is survived by his two children, Jim Schwartz (Linda Davis) and Donna (Ken Finnegan) Schwartz, and his grandson, Brian Finnegan.  He was a comptroller and accountant for many years at Keno and Sons Construction Company, retiring in 2002.

He was a devoted Christian and joined Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church in 1967 and was active in the church, holding various positions like Financial Secretary, Treasurer, School Board member and Trustee.  Over the years, Cliff thoroughly enjoyed singing in Jerusalem’s Choir and other area choirs.

He loved getting together with his and his wife’s family at holidays and other occasions and was well known for his sense of humor.  He always enjoyed vacations in many locations, often to Wisconsin, Florida, California, Nevada and essentially any time spent with family and friends.

Due to current Covid conditions, a memorial service will be held hopefully in late spring.
