Clifford was born on December 7, 1929 in Exeter and was raised in Hampton, NH by his late parents, Clifford H. Eastman, Sr., and Lily (Porter) Eastman. He graduated from Hampton Academy in 1948 and then worked for the Boston and Maine Railroad until he was called into the Army and was a veteran of the Korean War. He returned to the Boston Maine Railroad until he joined the Hampton Police Department. He joined the NH State Police in 1959 until he retired from there after 20 years.

I wish to offer my deepest condolences to the Eastman family.

Cliff was one of the good guys, and I still fondly recall how he helped this young Trooper/Trainee get through my first few months on the job while working the midnight shift in communications back in ’77.. Cliff was both professional and kind, and always made the effort to make me feel welcomed. As I newly minted Trainee, I still had a new wife living down in Massachusetts, was living at the YMCA in Concord, and was only able to see my wife on my days off. I’ll never forget his appreciation of my situation on those days when I would be travelling to MA once my shift was over. I always looked forward to his approaching me an hour or two before the shift ended; “Frank, I want you to pack up now and head south. We need to know if the state line is still there.”

He was a great guy.

Respectfully,
Frank Breen

To the Eastman family;
I was saddened to learn of Cliff's death. We were members of the NH State Police together for most of his career. He was an old school trooper who would do his best to help folks in trouble, and was prone to issue warnings than tickets, especially when he knew that could be effective, while saving young offenders from fines they could not afford. He was a valued member of the force, and a loyal friend who we will miss. We hope the memories of his accomplishments and happier times will carry you through your period of grief.
