Cleve was never a stranger to me growing up. He always remembered me and made sure to go out of his way to speak with me when he saw me out and about even if I hadnt seen him in years. I was always impressed by that and thought of him as a good man. Prayers for Aunt Betty and all the family during this time.

I was sad to hear of Cleve’s passing. I have only the fondest memories of him. We used to spend a lot of time together. He was such a gentle soul, and God blessed him with a long life. My sincere condolences to Betty, his equally loving wife, and his wonderful children, Laura, Becky, Carolyn, Susie, John, Mark, and Buddy. God bless you all!
