Clinton W. Jeffries Jr.

Clinton (Clint) Washington Jeffries Jr. died January 20, 2021.  He was born on July 21, 1936. He grew up in Harlem, New York City, the son of Clinton and Louise Ward Jeffries. He attended Evander Childs High School in the Gun Hill section of The Bronx, where he met the love of his life, Margaret (Marge)

C. Richards. They were married in April of 1963.

A highly recruited basketball player, Clint attended Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Noted highlights include that in 1954 he averaged 18 points a game for the freshman team. In 1955 he was the team scoring leader with 405 points. In 1956 he was team leader with 385 points including 31 points against St. Joseph’s University. In 1957 he scored 31 points against Albright College. He finished college with a total of 1,187 career varsity points (he would frequently remind people that freshmen could not play varsity, so that was in but three years!!). It is still a school record. He was inducted into the Muhlenberg Athletic Hall of Fame in 1988.

After college, Clint played for the Allentown Jets of the Eastern Professional Basketball League. He then served in the Army as a Specialist 4th Class based in Fargo, North Dakota.

Clint's professional life was devoted to the pharmaceutical company Pfizer. Over his thirty-two year career he held various positions in sales, training, and management both in Philadelphia and at the company’s New York City headquarters. He found many lifelong friends among the Pfizer family.

Clint was an avid sports fan: he loved his Philadelphia Eagles and was a longtime season ticket holder, and of course he loved the Sixers. An amazing athlete throughout his life, he was a regular on the tennis courts of Philadelphia, the Poconos, Lower Makefield and everywhere in between. He loved good food, travel, movies, television, and all the trappings of a life well lived. That he was a sharp-dressed man was an understatement. He cherished the company of his friends and family more than anything. He loved to laugh, and his smile will be greatly missed.

Clint was predeceased by his wife, who passed away on August 31, 2017. He is survived by his three loving sons: Chad and his wife Laura of Chelmsford, Massachusetts;  Scott of Boca Raton, Florida; and Glenn and his wife Nathalie of Yardley, Pennsylvania. He has four amazing grandchildren: Lindsey, Graham, Chloe, and Logan.

A Celebration of his Life will be held at a later time and services will be private.

In lieu of flowers, Clint would ask that when you leave a room to turn off the damm lights since he has to pay for the electric bill.
