Climpsey Lee Quesenberry, 83 of Willis VA, passed away peacefully in his home on Friday, March 11, 2022 of natural causes. Climpsey was born in Carroll County VA, on September 25, 1938.

He was, to say the least, a rough and tough old Mountain Man, having always worked in Sawmills, with hogs and many other different outdoor labor jobs. He loved being outside working in wood, taking care of his flowers, tending his garden, keeping up his yard and talking to all the little critters. He loved spending time with his beautiful wife Janice and with his family and friends. You could always count on a story of the good old days, a lesson on how things used to be done, or being put to work because it’s good for you and was his way of spending time with you. In his later years he developed a passion for building things with wood and was always on the look out for that next tree to cut down to get boards out of. He loved to go visit somewhere but was Always eager to get back HOME, for that was where his heart and soul resided, as it Always will.

Climpsey Lee Quesenberry is survived by his wife, Janice Marie (Ousley) Quesenberry, to whom he married on September 22, 1963. They were married for 58 years.

A Limb has fallen from the family tree that says…. Grieve not for me. Remember the Best Times, the laughter, the song, the good life I lived while I was strong.

Blessed are those who Mourn for they shall be Comforted. Matthew 5:4
