Ravon Leon Clouse passed away June 7, 2014. He was born on June 21, 1943 in Blackoak, to the late Moses and Dovie Clouse.

Ravon is survived by four children; Tammy Overby, Ravon Clouse, Jr., Pamala Phillips, and Angie Wilkerson; 10 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren; and many other family members and friends who loved Ravon and will miss him always.
