    PaPa Clevenger was loved by all that knew him! Not only was he loved he was admired, and respected! He was PaPa to so many. He had a heart of gold and would give all he had to make one of his “kids” smile. I am proud to have known him and for my son, John, to have had him for a PaPa! Remember how he loved to watch John and Walter Roy play football and he never left until he got to tell them “good job” boys and they would give granny a hug! He will be missed but REMEMBERED!
