Clifford Ray Revelle was born September 1, 1935 to Frasier C. and Edith Folsom Revelle, the youngest of 8.  He graduated from Powell High School in 1953.  He then attended Northwest Community College and Eastern Montana College, playing football for both schools.  He graduated with a BA in 1958, later earning his Masters of Education from the University of Wyoming.

Cliff began his 37 year teaching career in Lovell as a fifth grade teacher.  Later, he taught reading, became the Curriculum Director, and finished his career as the principal of Lovell Elementary School, retiring in 1997.  He coached wrestling for 16 years, served as assistant football coach, and assisted with track and junior high basketball.  He loved working with children and young people, as well as mentoring teachers.

While in Lovell, Cliff met the love of his life, Marilyn Jones.  The were married February 28, 1958.  They had a beautiful daughter, Lisa, whom he cherished.

Cliff was very active in the community.  In 1972, he was one of the coaches for the first Wyoming High School Wrestling Cultural Exchange, which took him to Japan.  He was chosen as the Outstanding Educator of 1997 by the Chamber of Commerce.  He was truly humbled by that honor.  He was an active member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, serving several terms on the parish council—as president, maintenance and grounds director, and director of the finance committee.  He was a member of the Knights of Columbus.  He served on the Wyoming Highway Commission from 1981-1987, serving as chairman from 1985-1987.  An avid golfer, Cliff was a member of the Foster Gulch Golf Course board.  In 2015 he was inducted into the Lovell High School Hall of Fame, for his wrestling coaching.  Cliff was an inaugural member of the Wyoming Street Athletic Club, which sponsored the Mustang Days barbecue for many years.

Always busy, Cliff loved working with his hands and built many additions for friends and neighbors in his spare time.  He loved his garden, and for many children, his “great” pumpkins were a special part of Halloween.  He loved spending time with family and friends.  Cliff enjoyed fishing and being in the outdoors.  He liked nothing better than spending an afternoon on the mountain, fishing and cooking brookies with his grandsons or son in law.  He enjoyed travel, especially experiencing the people and cultures of other places.  Cliff always had time to listen or help family and friends.

Cliff is survived by his wife Marilyn, daughter Lisa and her husband Kevin Parker of Springfield, VA and grandsons Dylan of Plano, TX and Derek of Shanghai, China.  He is survived by nephews Jack and Mark Revelle, nieces Teresa Bare, Donna Adams, Karen Revelle, Kathy Levi, and Becky Hansen.  He also cherished his amazing extended family—Cheza Pszanka, Susan, Brian, Kayla, Stephanie and Beau Green; David, Renee, Kylie, Eric and Nikki Nelson; Stuart, Kathi, Katie, David and Nicole Nelson; Patsy Nelson, Shandi, Tino, Bryson and Riley Vasquez; Cassie, Eddie and Ethan Lallak.  He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Lloyd, Frank, Jack, Don and Dave; sisters Wyola and Iola.

Services will be held at 1:30 Friday, November 16, 2018 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Lovell.  Interment will follow at the Lovell Cemetery.

In Lieu of Flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be made to the Tender Heart Account at the Lovell Elementary School, 520 Shoshone Ave. Lovell, WY.

We are so sorry for your loss. Even with a firm hope for the future, death is still accurately described as an enemy in the bible at 1 Corinthians 15:26. We can't help but feel the void when someone we love dies. The Bible holds out a hope for us that I personally have found to be a comfort. I especially love the scripture found at John 5:28,29 that says, " Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear Jesus' voice and come out." Jesus promises that millions now dead will again live on this earth, and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under peaceful conditions. It is my sincere hope that these thoughts bring a measure of peace to your minds and hearts, as they have to mine. Once again, please accept my heartfelt greetings and condolences. Your,Friend Kahlil.
