To the Clevenger Family,
I knew your family through my parents Berniece & Richard Graham from Garrett. I'm Sharon my brother Donny. As I recall your family lived next to a cemetery and a brewery. Was that on Washington? I remember Johnny. His Father Bill as a handsome guy. Was he a mailman?I remember a pic of him in uniform. Thoughts and prayers be with the family. I'm speeking also for my parents who have passed.

Very sorry to learn of John's passing. My sympathy is extended to the entire family. John and I became friends at the Eel River golf course a number of years ago when playing in the Busco league. He was always fun to play with and had a friendly attitude and, to his credit, didn't take the game too serious. The type of guy that was a joy to play with.

He will be missed.

With great sadness, we have lost a good friend. We got to know John at Eel River, GC. Always a big smile, and a wonderful man to be around. He will be missed, but not forgotten, when we go play golf. Rest in Peace my friend. Prayers for his family. R.L.2jZ7D
