Clifford D. Kater

July 27, 2022

Clifford D. Kater, 90, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, July 27, 2022 at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, Kansas.

He was born to Otto and Ella Kater on July 27, 1932 in Newton, KS.

Cliff worked as a supervisor of building and grounds for Junction City school district.  He was an educator, owned a driving school and a custodial supply company.

You could often find Clifford enjoying a peaceful day of fishing or spending quality time with his beloved grandkids.

Clifford made a point to be thoughtful and kind to every person he met. He loved making people smile, even on his final day he was in good spirits and winning the affections of his nurses and those nearby.

Cliff is survived by his brother, Jack Kater of Sedgwick, KS; son, Dale D. Kater of Phoenix, AZ; daughter, Tamlette V. Pouncil of Wichita, KS; as well as six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 64 years, Donna June Kater on July 8, 2022.

May Cliff have a happy heavenly birthday celebration with Donna and walk hand in hand with Our Savior.
