Cleve will be remembered as a loving and faithful husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle. He took great pride in being able to mow his own yard and keep it in pristine condition. He was known among his family and friends as a man who could fix anything, he not only worked as a mechanic with the Department of Transportation but did mechanic work for others on his own time. He especially enjoyed having conversations about the "good ole days".
