I would like to extend My Deepest Condolences to the Clifton Family. I am the Code Enforcement Officer for the Town of Randolph. He is a Great Man who truly became a friend and support system whenever I needed it. I worked with him and his Constituents when they needed help. His presence will be missed coming into the office to say Hello and to see how everything was going along in the Town. He really Loved this Town. I am still in disbelief that he has transition. The only solace I can offer is that God needed another flower for his garden and picked the brightest one that day. May you find comfort and peace and my prayers are with you all.

I first met Ken Clifton several years ago -- he was the Town Council President when I first encountered the Town Council. He has ever since then defined for me what a Town Council President should be -- poised, attentive, and deliberative.

A few years later we were together at an early Ayanna Pressley rally. Some people from Cambridge (also in Ayanna's district) joined us at the West End Grill, and one of my old buddies from my Cambridge days said: "Oh, Jess, I'd heard you got married; are you going to return to Cambridge?" Ken responded, "No, Jesse is one of us now," and from that moment forward I felt it was true.

A few days before Ken passed, I called him about some park work I'm doing in South Randolph. "I wanted to discuss this with you since it's in your district, not mine," I said. But Ken responded, "We all represent all of Randolph." Maybe that's not the most profound line, but it turned out to be the last line Ken ever said to me, so I'll remember it forever.

Kenrick was one of the "good guys" always looking out for his constituents and town residents. He had the pulse of the town always working to benefit all residents, most especially when Covid struck. No one will be able to fill his Town Council seat.

I am indebted to him for all his generosity, mentoring and thoughtfulness. He's with the angels now watching down on us, making sure we continue to do our best. He will be with me in spirit.

May his memory always be a blessing.

To The Family of Ken Clifton,

Thank you for sharing your loved one with the residents of Randolph. We met Ken many years ago when he came to the inaugural meeting of the Randolph Unity Network (RUN). My husband Kirk and I have appreciated knowing Ken for at least 18 years and have been proud of his leadership and his kind, sensitive advocacy to maintain social justice in our town. We loved and miss Ken and hope that the prayers of many will sustain you during this time and in the days to come.
Love,
Mary "Bunnie" Brown-Jones and Pastor Kirk Jones

I was shocked to find his obituary on the Town's website today. I never met Councilman Clifton in person, but he became very familiar to me from watching the Town council meetings on Facebook. I appreciated his patience and approach to very difficult matters and his work for the town is much appreciated.

My deepest condolence to his entire family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and the entire town for this loss. May our Lord and Savior give you peace during this time of grief.

My sincere condolences to Ken’s wife, children, family, friends, and constituents. I am deeply saddened by your passing. I met Ken many years ago when the Tabernacle of Praise Church started doing an annual dinner for Seniors in the Randolph and surrounding communities. Ken was an avid supporter and resource getting me the needed information; he did not miss a Senior Dinner and he always brought along others from the constituent. When COVID hit and we decided to do a fruit drive for the senior home, Ken was there with us at 7:00am delivery fruits. Your dedication and integrity is like no other; I will never forget how you personally helped me. I’m going to truly miss you. SIP
