Clifford Bruce Cowan, 61 of Longmont, died Thursday, May 27, 2021 at Long's Peak Hospital in Longmont.
He was born November 10, 1959 to Charles & Helen Cowan in Boulder, Colorado. He is survived by his son and daughter and their families, his brother and sister and their families.
Clifford went to Boulder Vocational Technical College where he majored in Motor Electric Repair. He worked for Boulder Electric Motor Company from 1980 thru 2016 when they closed the business down. While there, Cliff, as he preferred to be called, was widely known in the field and was able to fix any motor from the small old steel blade electric fan to Heidelberg motors. After Boulder Electric Company, he continued to do business with his son's business out of their home. Cliff and his son had lived together for more than 10 years. People would drive up, "looking for Cliff." He loved his work but frequently did not bill his true worth. He wasn't interested in making his living by sucker punching the little jobs. He was brilliant at what he loved to do.
Cliff will be missed by his family, his friends and many, many customers. He is one of the last old motor repair men in Boulder County.
Please join his family and friends for a memorial service at 1:00pm on July 17, 2021 at Hopewell Baptist Church, 1146 Kimbark Street, Longmont, Colorado, 80501.
Heritage Funeral & Cremation Services of Lafayette is handling cremation arrangements.
