Cliff Baker’s husband Guy Couch has posted the following update on social media:
Dear Cliff is not making any progress, so, after meeting with the doctors again today, we have made the awful decision to remove him from life support tomorrow. His family in Missouri and my family in Arkansas have been informed.
The doctors confirmed that the damage from his aneurysm last Monday was so massive that he could never recover or live a meaningful life. Cliff had an aortic aneurysm in 2012, and we had talked many times about his wishes, so I feel comfortable about this decision, as much as I hate it.
I’m sorry he can’t have visitors or greet you one last time, but he would want to be remembered in your heart as Cliff, the sweet, open-hearted guy who made the world go round.
Thanks. Take good care. We’ll celebrate when the time is right!
