Clifford B. Carts, of Coudersport, PA

Clifford B. Carts, of Coudersport, PA went peacefully into the arms of his savior, Jesus Christ, August 24, 2010, following many courageous battles with health complications. For the past four years he resided at Sweden Valley Manor, receiving excellent healthcare and love from their staff.

Having grown up in Reading, PA he was the son of Frederick and Virginia Clifford Carts. He married Florence Zimmerman on June 7, 1952. He joined the 4th Marine Division after spending 2 years of forestry studies at Penn State. Following combat duty in the Pacific Theatre in World War II, receiving the Purple Heart and other commendations from Iwo Jima, he returned to finish his forestry degree. He founded a consulting forestry firm that includes three generations of foresters.

Clifford was active with the local school board and really enjoyed advances in local school and sports endeavors. He helped encourage development of skiing in the area and was happy to see his grandson involved in Denton Hill Ski Area. He also enjoyed establishing international contacts to advance responsible forest practices in both China and Malaysia, training team tours to each as well as Australia and New Zealand.

Clifford had a special bond with all his family and grandchildren and great-grandchildren and followed them in their various recreational pursuits, especially skiing and horse showing, hockey, baseball, football, soccer, basketball and volleyball.

Clifford is survived by a sister, Phyllis Searle of Fearrington Village, NC, a son, Jeffrey (Carol Sue) Carts of Coudersport, three grandchildren, Scott (Jodi) Carts of Coudersport, Keri (Jon) Anderson of Coudersport, and Amanda (Tim) Johns of Lock Haven, PA. In addition he is survived by seven great-grandchildren.

Clifford was predeceased by his wife of 54 years, Florence, on December 7, 2006 and also his brother-in-law, Ronald Searle, in 2009.

Friends may call at the Fickinger Funeral Home of Coudersport on Sunday, August 29, 2010 from 2:00pm until 4:00pm at which time funeral services will be held with Reverend Harold Kiel officiating. Burial will be in Laureldale Cemetery in Reading, PA.
