Claud's Story

Text size

Claud Vernon Quesenberry, 91, of Oak Hill, WV, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, October 22, 2017.
Born January 18, 1926 at Hiwassee, VA, he was the son of the late James R. and Mary Jane Graham Quesenberry.
A World War II US Army veteran, he was awarded the Bronze Star, Purple Heart and several other medals. One of his fondest memories of the war was the day he arrived home.
Claud retired from the WV American Water Company with 42 years service. He was a former member of the Oak Hill Lions Club and Beckley Elk.
He loved to travel and spend time with his family, but most of all he loved to watch WVU and his westerns.
Claud was a member of the Jones Avenue First Church of God where he enjoyed attending and being with his church family.
His wife of 69 years, Sylvia Ann Frazier Quesenberry; son, Rodney Quesenberry; and daughter, Judy Epperly preceded him in death.
Survivors include a daughter, Joyce Cobb and husband, Mike of Oak Hill.

He will be sadly missed by numerous nieces, nephew, and additional family and friends.
His final wish for family was to be remembered for his good deeds and to love each other.
The family would like to thank Stephanie, Carrie, and Andrea of Southern WV Hospice. They were kind, patient and loving.
