At his 20-week ultrasound appointment, Clive was diagnosed with Anencephaly, a birth defect preventing the proper development of his skull and brain. He was born at home on April 30th and was held in loving arms for his entire life. His favorite activities in the womb were fishing in Grandpa Dennis’s pond, walking to Great Grandma Wanda’s, listening to the Chronicles of Narnia before bed, helping Eleanor and Orvis master their sight words, and being wrestled and kissed by Lincoln. His favorite activities outside the womb were squeezing his dad’s finger, and listening to his mommy’s heartbeat.

Clive is preceded in death by one unnamed sibling; and his paternal grandfather, Dennis Culpepper. He is survived by his parents, Chad and Emma Culpepper; his siblings Eleanor, Orvis, and Lincoln; his paternal great-grandmother, Wanda Culpepper; his paternal grandmother, Johnna Culpepper; his maternal grandparents, Harry and Mary Hartzler; many aunts and uncles; and even more cousins.
