 Clifford grew up in Manteca and attended Golden West elementary school and graduated from East Union High School. He was employed at Heinz in Tracy for over 12 years before going into the mortgage industry. Prior to his illness Clifford worked at Main Street Mortgage for 2 years as a loan officer. He enjoyed the outdoors, socializing, going to community events, and meeting new people. He was always the life of the party enjoying everyone’s company. Clifford’s world was his girls. He took pride in teaching them new things; especially cooking. He instilled confidence, love, and respect in both of his daughters. He always took time to teach them the ways of life with paying bills, balancing the check book and other simple things in life that most take for granted. Clifford will be remembered as a loving father who lived life to the fullest.

Mr. Bickle’s services are being handled by P.L. Fry & Son Funeral Home of Manteca. All services will be held at a later date. An online guest book is available for condolences to the family at
