Chad Edward Clevenger

April 14, 1980 ~ July 6, 2021 (age 41)


Chad Edward Clevenger, 41, passed away from a motorcycle accident Tuesday evening July 6, 2021.  He was born on April 14, 1980 in Muncie the son of Garry and Teri (Barton) Clevenger.

Chad graduated Southside High School in 1998 and later married his High School sweetheart, Amy (Chadwick) Clevenger on October 2, 1999 she survives.  As a couple they had a son Tyler whom he was very proud of and spent a lot of time with each day.   He especially enjoyed creating memories at their Thursday dinners at Buffalo Wild Wings.

  Mr. Clevenger had become a police officer 20 years ago having started work with the Muncie Police Dept., Eaton P.D., Delaware County Community Corrections, and then to the IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital where he was currently working.  He enjoyed being a part of the Shop with a Cop program each holiday season.   Besides having worked for several law enforcement departments, his first job was at Ross Supermarket, then Chase Bank as a teller, eventually to find himself with the Delaware County Community Corrections as a home detention Surveillance officer.  He also worked for Muncie Community Schools for 18 years as an SRO and Student Assistance Coordinator.  He also currently worked security at DIY for the past 13 years where he most recently was named safety coordinator.

He enjoyed riding his motorcycle with his wife and friends.  He had a major addiction to shopping, but mainly at The Buckle, and having a massive shoe collection.  A pair for every outfit.  He never missed a Black Friday sale and would stay out all night even when Amy was too tired to go on.  He loved to decorate for all holidays.  He enjoyed hanging out with friends and just making them laugh.  He liked to take pictures, especially selfies with a friend or five.  He enjoyed spending time with Uncle Chad’s girl Maddy who he spoiled like crazy.

Besides his wife of 22 years, Amy, he is survived by his son, Tyler, brother, Brad Clevenger, father-in-law, Wayne Chadwick Sr., sister-in-law, Abby Thornburg (Robert), nieces, Elisabeth Clevenger, Maddy Thornburg, Nephews, Jaylen and Garric Clevenger, several aunts, uncles and cousins.
