Quesenberry, Draper Clayton
Draper Clayton “Clay” Quesenberry, Husband, Father, Brother, Friend departed this life on Wednesday July 15, 2015 with family by his side. He was born April 24, 1959. Clay endured a 20 year battle with vascular disease, but lived his life with optimism and patience, smiling and singing to the end.
He loved his life as a boy growing up in Dry Valley with his family, and both sets of grandparents, learning to fish, make a garden, he loved nature and explored every inch of his world.
Then as a young man he married Linda Alderman Quesenberry, they were married for 38 years and have two sons Ross (26) and Jacob (23) Quesenberry. Clay worked at Christiansburg Printing Co. which later became Word Sprint, INC for over 30 years as printer, Production Manager and General Manager. He took care of his customers and made countless personal connections with co-workers and clients. He was encouraging and found the potential in everyone he met. An avid fisherman, he loved every opportunity to get out in his boat and fish all day and all night. He worked and cared for his family and friends and had a deep devotion to God. Sadly the tremendous loss we feel is overcome that he will no longer suffer the physical pain.
Survivors include his wife, Linda, two sons, Ross and Jacob Quesenberry; brother, Jessie Quesenberry and wife Debbie; and sister, Bonnie Quesenberry Erikson.
Visitation will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday July 19, 2015 at Gardner Funeral Home with a memorial service to follow at 6 p.m. with the Rev. Lee Naff officiating.
