August 21, 1939 - August 2, 2020
It is with profound sorrow and endless love that we mourn the peaceful passing of Jerome "Jerry" Craver of Stonelick Township. On August 2, 2020 he departed peacefully while surrounded by the tranquil sounds of nature and the generous support of his loving family.
He was survived by his sons Jerome Anthony (Rena) Craver and Chad Harvey Craver, his brother Pat (Carol) Craver, 21 grand children (2 preceded in death) and 7 great grand children. He was preceded in death by his wife of 28 years Nancy Lou Alder, his brother Mike Craver, his sister Mary Beth Sandfoss, his daughter Kathy Ellen Craver and his son Brad Christian Craver.
Army Veteran Jerome "Jerry" Craver was a dedicated member of American Legion Post #450. He was a committed C.W.A. Council Member (retired). He served as Union President and Vice President of C.W.A. 4400. He was an enthusiastic member of the Clermont County Donkey Club, National DNC, Clinton Foundation and Clermont County Democrats. He was a devout Catholic and faithful member of St Philomena Parish.
Those fortunate enough to know Jerry knew him as an honest and loyal husband, a loving and kind friend, a hard-working and strong individual, a doting father, and a man who unquestionably adored his family (especially his grand and great grand children). He was recognized as a kind, loyal,loveable, devoted, strong and beautiful soul. He had a grand appreciation for the outdoors with frequent trips to the Amish Country. He was an avid racing fan and was heavily supportive of multiple local raceway affiliates. He was most content quietly sitting in the countryside surrounded by members of his family and his best friend Zoey his dog.
A visitation will be held on Saturday August 8, 2020 at 10:00 AM until 11:00 AM at Evans Funeral Home 741 Center Street Milford, Ohio 45150. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Jerry's name may be made to Hospice of Cincinnati PO Box 633597 Cincinnati, Ohio 45263
