Clifford Seiferheld

He was married to the former Gayle Lynn Murphy of Union City.
Graveside services will be held next week in Union City.
Arrangements will be announced by White-Ranson Funeral Home, where the family will receive friends 2-4 p.m. Saturday.
He was born Oct. 16, 1937, in Brooklyn, N.Y. Clifford was a loving man who loved his wife, his family and life. He worked hard and played even harder. He loved riding his Harley, dancing, boating, bowling, spending time with his family and friends. He was the kind of man who never met a stranger.
People he didn’t know were just friends he just hadn’t met yet. He really knew how to spin a good tale. If you asked him, he would even tell you that he taught John Travolta how to dance … LOL.
He worked for the Teamster’s Local 456 Union in New York as a tractor trailer driver for 38 years from 1962-2000.
He is survived by his loving wife, Gayle Lynn Seiferheld; three daughters and their spouses, June and William Tonelli Jr. of Connecticut, Regina and Stephen Sokolik of New York and Andrea and Danny Draznin of New Jersey; three sons and their spouses, Edward and Claudia Seiferheld, Gregory and Debbie Seiferheld and Richard and Nicole Seiferheld, all of New York; his step-daughters, Niki Keller and Erin of Tennessee and Kim Busby of California; his daughter-in-law, Maureen Seiferheld of New York; his grandchildren and their spouses, William III  and Charity, Angelina, Dino Rocco, Danielle and Kevin, Clifford IV, Sarah, Ashley, Danny Jr., Michael, Richard Jr., Breanna, Tyler, Cory, Isabella and Noelani; his step-grandchildren, Gavin and Rylan; his great-grandchildren, Matthias and Alara; his sister, Eileen Scuderi of New York; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Mickey and Janet Seiferheld and Kenneth and Patricia Seiferheld, all of New York; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
He was predeceased by his son, Clifford Seiferheld III; and his parents, Clifford Seiferheld Sr. and Helena (Iraggi) Seiferheld.
Most of his family and friends lovingly knew him as Crocodile Dundee, a.k.a. Croc!
Croc, you will be deeply missed, but never forgotten. We Love You
