He was born March 1, 1950 to Bill and Margaret Keller. He loved his family with all his heart. He had a giant soft spot for his grandkids and great grandkids. He had a strong love for the sport of rodeo especially for tie down roping. He spent countless hours perfecting his roping from a young age.

He is known for his ability to train a rope horse. He taught these abilities to his kids, grandkids and friends to carry on. He had many accomplishments in the arena roping. He was the 2016 Canadian Senior Pro Rodeo Champion Breakaway roper. He was also the reserve Champion tie down Roper, just to name a few. He also had a talent and love for training good cow dogs. He was a jack of all trades. He could build a home from start to finish. He worked for Fairview City for many years and retired. He was a big asset to the city and community.

The rodeo ground was dedicated to Cliff and Jackie for all their work and dedication to the community and city. He had the ability to become an expert in all he did and pursued. He was such a mentor to all he came in contact with. He touched so many lives. He was someone everyone looked up to.
