Olen G. Claypool

MADISON — Olen “Oley” G. Claypool, age 75, of Madison, Ohio, passed away Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013, at home surrounded by his family.

He was born Nov. 20, 1937, in Hacker Valley, W.Va., to Maude (Davidson) and Cecil Claypool. He married Carmen (Lloyd) Claypool on Dec. 3, 2003 in Madison.

Oley was a member of the Plumber’s Union Local 55 for 55 years. In 1974, he started L & N Plumbing & Heating with Ronald Hupertz. He loved fishing anytime the lake was calm…or not…and enjoyed catching perch with his long-time fishing partner Denny Arvidson. Oley was “the perch pack” leader because he knew the best places to find the perch.

He is survived by his wife, Carmen Claypool of Madison; children, Charles (Maria) Claypool of Tierra Verde, Fla., Elizabeth (Mark) Claypool of St. Petersburg, Fla. and Michael (Kim) Claypool of Madison; step-children, Bryan (Diana) Winter of Madison, Wis. and Michele (Mitch) Schultz of Madison; grandchildren, Christopher and Brandon Claypool, Amber (Christopher) Wirtzberger, Jeremy (Erika) Babb, Casey and Jack Winter, and Allison and Daniel Schultz; great-grandchildren, Blake and Tristan; and a sister, Nancy Bukky of Madison.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Marie Malkamaki and Ruby Adams; and business partner, Ronald Hupertz.

Friends will be received from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 31st, at THE BEHM FAMILY FUNERAL HOME, 26 River St., Madison.

Funeral Service will be held 11 a.m., Friday, Nov. 1st, at the Funeral Home, with Deacon Tom Hupertz, of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, officiating.

Memorial contributions in Oley’s name may be made to Hospice of the Western Reserve, 17876 St. Clair Ave., Cleveland, Ohio 44110-2602.
