Cleophas was always there when I needed it and when me and my mom needed help and food he would be there and cleophas felt like a dad to me for the 13 years that I did have him and if he just got to say hi to me I know he would've gotten better to let me come over and see him

Cleophas, what a great brother in law you were. You treated my sister Linda with great respect. There was nothing you would not do for her. Thank you for making her happy. Our family grew to love you so much in the 22 years we shared. Things will never be the same without you. I am heart broken over the loss of you. The only comfort I find is in this scripture...To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord (II Cor 5-6-8). I know you are safe in His arms. I have cried a million tears. I will miss you so very much. You are forever in my heart... Michel

Cleo. I miss you man. I miss our talks about music and football and martial arts films. I miss your laugh and your sense of humor. And I'm grateful for everything you were to me, my brother and my momma. It hurts so much, to know your not coming home. But I will cherish all the memories, until I see you again.

He is truly missed. I always teased him about being too patient about things that would have made me mad. He would laugh and just say, β€œI think it’s kind of funny .” I thank God for all the memorable moments. Rest In Peace Brother.

When we lose someone so special it is very hard to find the words to express how one feels. To the Gaffney and William Families my prayers of peace and comfort are being sent up to our Lord and Savior for you. We all lose a good man when Cleophas went to be with The Lord.

I'm going to miss that laugh and the many stories. Uncle Cleophas was a teacher, a protector and an amazing soul. Part of who I am today is because of him. I can see him and my dad smiling from above, watching over all of us. All my love to the rest of my Oklahoma family.
