Richard ‘Dick’ Klever
FREDERICKTOWN — Richard L. “Dick” Klever, 63, of Mishey Road, Fredericktown, died Sunday afternoon, Jan. 11, 2004, in his rural Fredericktown home following a short illness.
He was born Aug. 11, 1940, in Fayette County near Jeffersonville to Robert and Doris (Speakman) Klever and was graduated from Washington Court House High School in 1958. He attended The Ohio State University and served three years with the U.S. Army. Dick operated his farm on Mishey Road, as well as owned and operated his own business Westgate Lawn Equipment in Columbus. He also taught small engine vocational education for many years. He was a member of the First Baptist Church, Fredericktown, and served on the Ohio Farm Bureau Board and the Young & Adult Farmer Group. Dick enjoyed puttering with his Model-T Ford and tooling around on his Honda Gold Wing — all the way to Key West. But his real passion was his antique tractors and farm equipment, often entering them in antique tractor pulls, and annually in the Fredericktown Tomato Show parade.
He is survived by his wife, Mary Catherine (Snider) Klever, whom he married Dec. 30, 1962; a son, Doug (Constance) Klever of Pickerington; a daughter Mary Ann (Larry) Ebert of Fredericktown; foster daughter Shannon (Bill) Smith of Galloway; grandchildren, Brian, Eric and Abigail Klever, Larry III, Emily and Michael Ebert, Ashdon Lawles, and Christy and Cameron Smith; his mother, Doris Klever of Fredericktown; two brothers, James Klever of Fredericktown and William (Brenda) Klever of Newark; a sister, Rebecca Russell of Loudonville; a sister-in-law, Elizabeth Snider of Columbus; and numerous nieces and nephews, extended family and a host of friends.
In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by a sister,
Roseann Klever Mellott.
