Clifford Challinor: 1933-2016


After several years of mixed health issues, Clifford Challinor was called to the nearer presence of his Lord on 29 September 2016

 

Clifford ChallinorHe lived a very full life as a principal China buyer for Della Porta’s, Shrewsbury before running his own shop in Pontesbury. He was well known and respected by all in the village and in fact, everywhere.

He was a Deacon, Life Deacon, Treasurer and Secretary, at different times, at Pontesbury Baptist Church, Shrewsbury, President of the West Midlands Baptist Association, Secretary and President of the Baptist Men’s Movement.  He was a well-respected Lay Preacher who spoke in different denominations and across the country.

He was a strong family man, having two sons with his first wife Glenys who passed on in 1994. He married Ann in 1997 and adopted a new family as his own.

He was regarded by many as a true Christian gentleman. He devoted his life to his Lord and His work here on earth. He was always ready to talk to anyone and explain his beliefs and was responsible for leading men and women to a belief in his Lord.

Cliff will be sadly missed by many but all realise that now out of pain, claiming his reward to be with his Saviour and Lord.
