George Clift ALC


In Memory Of
George R. Clift
November 12, 1956—October 9, 2022

We are deeply saddened to inform you of the unexpected passing of George Clift. George was bigger than life and his passing will leave a huge hole in our hearts and in our company. It will be a difficult road moving forward, but we have a good group of tough men and women and expect to make George proud of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Kathi, and all of the Clift family. As we recently celebrated 25 years in the land business, it is hard to believe George will not be here to continue the Legacy he created. However, George was forward-thinking and had a transition plan in place. Clift Land Brokers is and will continue to be open for business and provide our clients with the exceptional service you have come to expect from us.

George Ray Clift, 65, of Amarillo passed away on October 9, 2022. George was born November 12, 1956 in Odessa, TX to Donald Ray Clift and Rebecca Sconyers Clift. He graduated from Lexington High School in Lexington, OK and attended Northeastern Oklahoma A&M in Miami, Oklahoma where he played football and baseball for 2 years. While there, he met the love of his life, Kathi and they married July 16, 1977. He then attended Oklahoma State and graduated in 1979 obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science.

He is preceded in death by his brother and sister-in-law, Don and Jana Clift. George is survived by his wife, Kathi Clift; daughters, Kari Figuera (Felix) and Megan Newbern (Mark) all of Atlanta, GA; son, Bryan Clift (Jana) of Stratford, TX; brothers, Roger Clift (Mary Sue Adams) of Eureka, MT and Mark Clift (Misty Puls) of Dallas, TX; parents, Donald and Rebecca Clift; grandchildren, Kaytly, Morgan, Ellie, Stella, Felix, George, and Dorothy.

George’s larger than life personality flourished at Oklahoma State University in the ag department. He served as president of Block and Bridle and was selected the Outstanding Animal Science Graduate. He raised three kids with the love and passion for 4H and FFA and always continued to be a huge supporter of those programs. He began his career with Purina as District Sales Manager where he had many successes. However, after 19 years he “pushed all the chips to the center of the table” (as George would say) and started a new career in real estate & built what is now Clift Land Brokers, the largest farm & ranch real estate firm in the Texas Panhandle. He proudly served as State and National President for the Realtor® Land Institute. George had a bigger than life personality, he influenced & encouraged people – financially helped – touched so many lives. He would strike up a conversation with anybody, he never met a stranger.
When he wasn’t on the phone getting a deal done, he was busy building Providence Land and Livestock in Dallam County and the farm in Sherman County. The Sherman County farm became his home away from home at the barndominium that he and Kathi built.  He always said the farm work he was doing was his hunting and fishing time and always looked back on his accomplishments of the day with pride and satisfaction. He enjoyed all his time with his grandkids and the grandkids enjoyed their time with Papa, either watching the kids on the softball diamond, football field, rodeo arena, or the show ring.  George will be sorely missed by all of us who knew him.
