John Cleaver

1935 – 2022.  Age 86. Of Brooklawn.

Jack was predeceased by his Loving Wife, Rosemarie F. Cleaver (nee McLean). He is survived by many loving family members who will miss him dearly. He was a loving and enthusiastic “Grampy” to his Granddaughters Marin & Amelia. He also had a wide network of  lifelong friends, neighbors, classmates and coworkers that he kept in close contact with, always ready with a quick witted joke , a smile or a kind gesture. Jack was born at home on King Street in Gloucester City, NJ in 1935 to the late George and Mildred Cleaver.

He was a proud graduate of the Milton Hershey School, class of 1954 and went on to proudly serve our country in the U.S. Air Force. Jack served in the 4th Air Police Squadron and traveled to all corners of the world. Jack retired from the Philadelphia Navy Yard as a rigger/general foreman and then held various jobs in the security field after his retirement. Jack loved his frequent get togethers with his former coworkers and classmates. For those of you who knew him, you know the stories could go on far too long for the page!
