Virginia Beach- Flournoy Efton Cleveland, known to all as "Pete", died October 12, 2002, in Virginia Beach General Hospital. He was born October 27, 1920.
Mr. Cleveland had a 35-year career in the gasoline business. Upon his retirement in 1985, he did what he liked best, continuing an insatiable pursuit of knowledge.

Cleveland; son and daughter-in-law, Mickey and Becky Cleveland; daughter and son-in-law, Trudy and Robert Norville; his grandchildren, Adam Cleveland, Amy Luttrull, and Alyse Norville.
