“Darwin, come with Me”

Darwin “Red” G. Cleveland was ushered to his forever home on Aug. 30, 2019. He was 82 years old.

Born Dec. 28, 1936 in Jamestown, N.D., Darwin was the second of four sons born to Clifford and Mabel Cleveland. He grew up on the family farm and was educated in Tuttle, N.D.

Darwin was active in his church, and his faith in his Lord Jesus Christ sustained and brought him joy throughout his life. His faith comforted and carried him through his three-year battle with congestive heart failure.

Darwin retired after 30 years with Boeing. During retirement, he enjoyed volunteering for SOWERS, a group of Christians who travel the country in their RVs working on building projects.

During his lifetime, Darwin befriended many people while living on Whidbey Island (30 years), Lake Havasu, Ariz., Mount Vernon, Camano Island and Marysville, Wash.

Darwin is survived by wife, Sharrie Hart Cleveland; son, Kevin Cleveland (Trish), of Marysville; daughter, Kim Perkins (Randy), of Lake Havasu; honorary daughter, Tuvette McCroskey (Kevin), of Seattle; and their families.

Darwin and Sharrie enjoyed many grandchildren and great grandchildren. He is also survived by many sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews.

Darwin was preceded in death by his parents; his first wife, Gerri; three brothers; and a nephew.

A celebration of his life is planned for 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019 at Camano Chapel, 867 W. Camano Dr., Camano Island, Wash.

In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to his favorite Christian charities, the Flying H Boys Ranch, in Naches, Wash., or Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch, in Bend, Ore.
