John Clevenger Obituary, Death – I really needed you today. What a day without you is like. Five years straight, each and every day. When I do, the sky doesn’t appear the same since now I have someone I love up there with me. I’ll miss you forever, Daddy, but at least you’re no longer in any discomfort. R.I.P. “So it is with you now: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again, and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.” John 16:22. I get it entirely.
Brittnee, he would be very pleased with you. I adore you and your amazing mother. Yes, I get it; you’re a stunning human being, inside and out. He looks down on you with pride. I really do miss you and I can’t wait to see you again. John worked for Masland Industries in the past, but farming and woodworking were his true callings and life’s work. His legacy is one of rigorous work ethic and farm respect that he instilled in his offspring.
Aric T. “Tom” Clevenger (wife Angela), his son; Heidi, his daughter; and his grandchildren Caitlynn (of Shippenburg), Ryan (of Newville), and Devin (of Newville) are among many who will miss him greatly. In addition to his brother Dale and his wife Shirley, his sisters Janet Whisler and Connie Brymesser also call Newville home. There are also numerous cousins, in-laws, and other extended family members still alive.
