Captain Clifford Cormier, of Van Buren and Bangor, Maine, died on June 6, 2014, at his home in Mountain City, Georgia.

He leaves his devoted wife of 43 years, Vonnie Cormier. He is survived by his loving daughter, Rain Caitlin Cormier, and grandson, Cole Cormier, of Olympia, Washington. He is also survived by siblings Lucille Geaghan and Joseph Cormier, and his nephews and nieces.

Clifford studied forestry at the University of Maine. He served in the United States Navy.

He lived many places throughout his life, including New England and Florida. He and his artist wife, Vonnie, spent many years living and working on Andros Island, in the Bahamas.

They settled in Rabun County, Georgia, in 1985. There he worked as a tool and die maker for the Aid Corporation and the Gash Tool Company.

He spent years sailing the Charles River in Boston, the Atlantic coast and in the Caribbean. Much of his life was seafaring.

Clifford leaves his example of steadfast calm, his courage and his Joy. He was a singular man and he was in all ways a gentleman.

Burial will be at sea.
