Roger D. Cleven, 85, passed away on November 3, 2014 at Mercy Hospice in Johnston. Roger was born to Dan and Hilda Cleven in Blue Earth, MN on March 31, 1929. After graduation from Lake Mills High School, his talent with basketball and his infamous "hook shot" led him to Simpson College where he was elected into Simpson's Hall of Fame.

Roger began his 50 year career with Iowa Realty in 1955. He managed the 63rd & Grand office where he was passionate about helping his agents achieve their goals. Roger loved to play golf, boat, and take his annual Okoboji trip with his family.

Roger is survived by his children, Jeff (Molly), Jim and Jeanette (Kirk) Steinfeldt; brother, Lloyd (Darlene) Cleven; sister, Helen Adams and six grandchildren. He was preceded in death by wife, Gloria.

Funeral Services will be held 10:30 a.m. Monday, November 10 at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Ankeny with luncheon following. Private burial will be held at later date at Glendale Cemetery.

Roger's family would like to express their gratitude to the staff at Methodist Hospital and Mercy Hospice. The family simply wishes your contribution be your thoughts and prayers at this time.
