Edward Scott Cleer, 55, of Champion, entered into eternal rest Sunday, March 4, 2018 at University Hospital in Cleveland after a lengthy illness. He was born December 15, 1962 in Warren, the son of Ralph William and Darla Rae (Langley) Cleer, and had lived in the area all his life.
A 1981 graduate of Champion High School, Ed worked at Sajar Plastics in Middlefield. A chronic jokester, he enjoyed taking his children fishing and watching them in sports, and could always be counted on for basketball games with his nieces and nephews. He loved all sports, especially playing golf and watching the Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Cavaliers.
He is sadly missed by his two children, Steven James Cleer and Megan Elisabeth Cleer, both of Howland; two sisters, Denise Renee Cleer McDowell of West Farmington and Cynthia Estella Cleer (Ted Lee) Knepper of Champion; a sister-in-law, Tonya Guesman; two nieces, Madelyn Rae and Brianna Marie McDowell; and three nephews: Nicholas Raymond Cleer, and Mathew Allen and Alexander Scott Knepper.
Preceding him in death are his parents; a brother, Donald William Cleer; and a niece, Kaitlyn Renee Knepper.
Per his request, cremation is taking place. Services for Ed will be 11:00 am Saturday, March 17, 2018 at West Farmington United Methodist Church, 220 West College Street, with Pastor Jim George officiating. Friends may call an hour before the service at the church.
