Clifford "Jim" Sieh

March 21, 1941 - April 26, 2022

Clifford "Jim" Sieh, age 81, was called home by our Lord April 26, 2022, in Gillette, Wyoming.

The couple made their home in Gillette, where they raised their family.

Jim's favorite job was working for BOCES as a transportation maintenance foreman.  He loved the kids there.  He eventually went to work for the mines and retired from Coal Creek. 

Jim enjoyed reading anything he could get his hands on.  He had sometimes commented that although       read.  

He also enjoyed woodworking and playing darts.

Jim was a dedicated blood donor; he had donated gallons of blood over the years. Continuing in his spirit to assist those in medical need where he could, he gave one more selfless act of giving by being an organ donor.
