Three children: Kathy Banahan and husband Tom of Illinois, Larry Cleaver, Jr. and wife Vannetta of Louisville, and Charles Cleaver and wife Beverly of Indiana,

One brother: David Cleaver and wife Glenda of Harlan,

Seventeen grandchildren,

A host of stepchildren and grandchildren,

Mr. Cleaver will be laid to rest in the Mt. Washington Cemetery beside his late wife.
