Darryl H. Clouse(1952 - 2016)

Darryl H. Clouse, age 64, of Lecanto, Florida, passed away at his home on September 24, 2016. Darryl was born on September 12, 1952 in Council Bluffs, Iowa to Pete and Thelma (Bolton) Clouse. Darryl moved to Citrus County in 1982 and became Director of IT for Citrus County Government, a position he held until his passing. A master storyteller and lover of vintage motorcycles, music, baseball, and all things sarcastic, under Darryl's tough fašade laid his true self - a compassionate man with unwavering love for his family and friends and the first to help an animal in need.
In addition to his parents, Darryl was preceded in death by his brothers; Vernon and Ron Clouse; sisters, Maycle Baldwin and Carole, and husband Larry Cox.
Darryl is survived by his one daughter and the light of his life, Lindsey Clouse of Washington, D.C.; his warmhearted long-devoted companion, Susan Bungo of Lecanto, FL; two brothers, Gordon and his wife Karen Clouse, Robert and his wife Mary Clouse; and sister-in-law, Toni Clouse.
Private cremation will take place under the direction of Brown Funeral Home and Crematory in Lecanto, FL.

Family will be receiving friends at 6 p.m. and a service will follow at 7 p.m.
In lieu of flowers or cards, Darryl's wish was to have donations made to an organization that assists animals. A special fund has been set up in his memory with the Citrus County Animal Shelter. There is an existing $100,000 trust with the shelter waiting to be unlocked if matched by your donation.
