Lyle J. Clevenger, 82, of Grayson, went to his eternal home on Wednesday November 18, 2020.
Lyle was born on October 21, 1938 in Hitchins Kentucky to George and Irene (Parsons) Clevenger.
He was proceeded in death by his parents, a son Lyle Scott Clevenger and a daughter Connie Miller.
He is survived by his wife of 23 years, Hazel Clevenger, two sons Larry Clevenger of Ohio, and Jeff (Kim) Clevenger of Grayson; two stepsons David Stevens and Donald Stevens of Grayson, three grandchildren Brayden Clevenger of Grayson, Stephanie Adkins of Ohio, and Sarah Johnson of Ohio, two great grandchildren Kayla Johnson and D.J Adkins of Ohio, and two brothers, Buster Clevenger of Hitchins, and Joe Clevenger of Greenup.
Lyle retired from the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers Local 40 and was a member of the Willard Masonic Lodge 626. He was a member of the Scottish Rite 32 degree, El Hasa Shriners in Ashland Kentucky.
Lyle was a man of yesteryear and enjoyed watching westerns and dressing the part of a cowboy. When out and about town, he could always be found wearing his jeans, western shirt, cowboy boots, and cowboy hat. He enjoyed spending time riding his Harley Davidson motorcycles and fishing in the past. He also enjoyed spending time visiting with friends and family in person and on the phone. He liked to stay “in the know” of what was happening in the community and kept his scanner tuned in to hear all the action.
His children and grandchildren were a source of pride, especially his grandson Brayden. He always wanted to hear what his grandson was up to whether it was Bible study, archery, or schoolwork. When Brayden was little, Lyle would call to see if he wanted something to eat “from town” and would always show up with a Happy Meal and they would have lunch together a couple of times a week. Fast forward eleven years, and it was Brayden who brought a meal to serve his “grandpa” during the last few months of his life.
Life has a way of coming full circle. Lyle’s kind smile and giving heart will be missed by those who knew him; however, there is comfort in knowing that he has reached his eternal home and is in the presence of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
