It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Past RI President Cliff Dochterman (1992 - 93).

 Cliff Dochterman has spoken to more Rotary Clubs than anyone in the world. Over the past fifty years, he has served in almost every Rotary assignment, from Berkeley Rotary Club president to worldwide President of Rotary International in 1992-93. He has travelled the world on humanitarian projects and has been honored by the heads of state in many nations.

He had a 45-year career as an administrator at University of California at Berkeley and the University of the Pacific in Stockton. He has had a lifetime association with the Boy Scouts of America, and is a former president of the local Chamber of Commerce and chairman of the county Parks and Recreation Commission. Freedoms Foundation of Valley Forge has recognized his speeches with the George Washington Honor Medal.

His Rotary Theme theme was "Real Happiness Is Helping Others".  He and his wife, Mary Elena belong to the Rotary Club of Moraga, near San Francisco, California.

What a huge loss to the Rotary world but will always cherish memories with him. Rest in peace Cliff.

If I Could Be President Again
