Clifford Martin Alveshere passed peacefully to his heavenly home on Thursday, February 3, 2022.
Cliff was born on October 12, 1926, to Martin and Hannah Alveshere in Harvey, North Dakota. In Cliff's youth, his family moved to Minnesota and settled near Hewitt, where Cliff graduated from high school.
On April 15, 1946, Cliff enlisted in the U. S. Army, and he was able to serve his country during World War II.
Upon his return from service, Cliff met and married Cora Campbell on February 5, 1949. To this union three children were born - Connie, Curt, and Clark. Cora passed away on September 4, 1987.
During Cliff's career, he farmed, was a carpenter, worked as an insurance agent for Lutheran Brotherhood and ended his career working for the U. S. Postal Service as an Alexandria city carrier.
Cliff met and married Diane Worsech on August 22, 1990. They spent the next 31 years crafting, traveling and jointly managing Alveshere Piano Studio. Many a student would stop by Cliff's desk after lessons and say something like "I'm playing baseball at Fillmore Park tonight at 5:00 o'clock". Cliff would go and watch countless students over the years play any kind of sports.
He loved his "Alexandria Cardinals" and they loved him back and called him one of their "Super Fans". It gave him great joy to watch youth develop and improve their skills from elementary through high school and beyond.
Cliff was a member of the UCC Dartball Team and wouldn't miss the Tuesday morning coffee with his buddies at Travelers Inn. He was also a member of Bethesda Lutheran Church and served as treasurer for many years.
Cliff is survived by his wife, Diane; Connie Raasch, Curt (Julie) Alveshere, Clark Alveshere, Brian Worsech and John Przbylski, Jill (Don) Klimek, Christine (Steven) Svee, Lisa (Corey) Greninger, Dylan and Addison; Jeremy (Katie) Stroup-Schultz, Maisie and Crosby; Nicholas (Samantha) Alveshere; Kyle (Megan) Alveshere, Brooks and Roland; Stephanie (Eric) Schmidt, Hudson and Hadley; Mathew (Olivia) Alveshere, Harriet and Walter; Justin (Brittany) Klimek, Easton and Carson; Nicole (Alec) Swanson, Jaxon and Grace; Hunter Svee and many extended family and friends.
