Grover C. Gunther Aliff Jr.

Grover C. Gunther Aliff Jr., 67, of Beaver, passed away Thursday, December 31, 2012.

Little did we know that morning that God would call your name.

In life we loved you dearly. In death we do the same, it broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone, for part of us went with you the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide and though we cannot see you, you will always be on our side, our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one our chain will link again.

Mr. Aliff was born the son of the late Macie Gunther and was born at Mt. Tabor where he spent most of his childhood.

Grover was also preceded in death by two sisters, Arlene B. DeHart and Caroline M. Sturgill, a brother, Clyde E. Gunther, a niece, Tammy DeHart and a nephew Joseph Gunther.
