Don will always have a special place in my heart,may he reat in peace.
Donald was just like family to me. He went from being my high school vice-principal to my adult friend. He was a great man and will be missed. I was impressed to see him make a basket all the way across the Philippi High gym! Love and miss you! My prayers are with all of you.

He gave his best to make the world a better place. We were all blessed by knowing him. May you have peace through the Prince of Peace until that great reunion day.
So sorry for your loss. Your Dad was a really wonderful man. I always enjoyed talking with him. He was my principal from the 7th or 8th grade until I graduated high school, & I worked in the office for him every year.
Great teacher of my eighth grade class at Philippi Grade School - 1955.
My thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Cleavenger family, may GOD wrap his arms around each of you and give you peace and comfort. I have fond memories of Mr. Cleavenger as he was my principal at PBHS and he was truly a good man & educator. May GOD bless each of you. RIP Mr. Cleavenger.

I was lucky to have Mr. Cleavenger as a practice teacher and as a grade school teacher and he always treated me as a friend -- he was a good influence and a great guy.
I was so sorry to hear about this.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
To a man that set so many Positive examples in all that he did. I only knew Don as an administrator in his time in the school system. I never remember him bragging of his accomplishments, he just quitely got the job done with a kind and gentle manner.
Gretchen and family,
I'm sorry for your loss. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

My father was a leader and guide to everyone around him. He will be sadly missed, but happily remembered. He is free of his aged flesh prison. He is with his friends, family, and especially with my baby sister and mother, Jenny. Life will go on.

He was a Great man and Great teacher and administrator. He will be missed.
God Bless Grandpa. He will be sadly missed by all of us.He was a wonderful caring man. May he Rest in Peace. Love, Gerry-Michael, Nancy, Kevin, Christina and Jonathan!
Mr. Cleavenger was my Biology Teacher at Philippi High School. He was one of my favorite teachers. I graduated in 1959 and oh how nice it was to see him at the class reunion. I beleive it was the 45th one. I pray that God will ease the pain in your heart! I will pray for the family.
