On Monday, September 26, 2022, Clint Joseph Deusenberry, loving father and grandfather, passed away at the age of 84.
Clint was born on March 1, 1938 at his childhood home on Hopewell Road in Fairmont, WV to Blond and Edna (Crago) Deusenberry. He joined the military at 16 and worked at Technicast in Orrville, OH for 43 years. On January 31, 1956, he married the love of his life Janice Lenore Rittenhouse. They raised three sons, Greg, Clinton, and Joseph, and one daughter, Kelly.
He was a man of very humble roots and was well known for his generosity and kindness. He would help raise several of his nieces and nephews like his own children. No child in the neighborhood would go through the winter without a coat, hat, and mittens. He would give you the shirt off his back and cook you a hot meal without a second thought. He bought Christmas gifts for many children beyond his own. He loved inviting folks over for coffee and good conversation. Everyone he met was treated with dignity, respect, and compassion. To all that knew him, Clint was simply known as “a very good man.”
He is preceded in death by his wife Janice, his sons Greg and Clinton Deusenberry, his parents Edna and Blondale, his sister Anna (John) Summers, his brothers George (Jeanette) Deusenberry, Richard (Carol) Deusenberry, Jerry Deusenberry, Ray Deusenberry, and William Deusenberry, brother-in-laws Bobby Lyons and John Sommers, and sister-in-laws Jeanette Deusenberry and Carol Deusenberry.
He is survived by his children Joseph Deusenberry and Kelly (Dan) Wade, his brothers Larry Deusenberry and Charles (Marcia) Deusenberry, and his sisters Louise Lyons, Marge Plumbly, and Donna (Rick) McDougal, grandsons Chad (Allison) Deusenberry, Andrew (Becky) Deusenberry, Zachery Deusenberry, Devon Deusenberry, and Brenton Deusenberry, granddaughters Courtney (Benjamin) McConahay, Larissa (Rob) Pelger, and Casey (William Hansen) Wade, and great grandchildren Willow and Wren McConahay, Amelia Deusenberry, Declan and Dahlia Deusenberry, and Fox Deusenberry.
A private gathering will be held at a later date.
