Clifford Rossiter

Clifford Eugene Rossiter was born on July 21, 1946, to Calvin and Ollie (McFarlin) Rossiter in Tulare, California.  He entered into rest on April 6, 2024, at his home in Wichita, Kansas, with his family by his side.

Clifford was raised in Tulare, California, graduating from Tulare Western High School in 1964.  In 1965, he was drafted to serve in the United States Army during the Vietman War.  He remained stateside during this service time and was honorably discharged in 1967.   Clifford was baptized into the General Assembly and Church of the Firstborn on April 17, 1964, by Bro Wayne Brown in Tulare, California.

Clifford married Glenda Thompson on July 5, 1968, and to this union seven children were born.  Clifford and Glenda spent their marriage living in Sacramento, California,  Grand Junction, Colorado, Eugene, Oregon, and Wichita, Kansas.  

Clifford earned his living as a carpenter and was a craftsman working with wood.  In his retirement, he enjoyed crafting projects large and small for his children and grandchildren.  His most cherished accomplishment however, were the works he did in service for Lord.  He traveled many miles preaching, teaching and baptizing men and women into the Faith.   Often he would tell of these travels and the goodness of God that he was able to witness.
