Survivors include his parents, Tim and Cindy Clover of Herrin; his girlfriend, Drayah Hill of Herrin; his daughter, Chandler Makay Clover; sister, Amanda Clover of Herrin; paternal grandfather, Bernard (Debi) Clover of Killeen, Texas; his baby girl dog, Cassanova Bologna Clover; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Doddie Moore; maternal grandparents, Frank L. “Speedy” and Barbara A. Hammonds; his great-grandparents, Nan and Grandpa and Great-Grandma Essie; and his uncle, Terry Hammonds.

T.J. will be cremated and a private, family memorial service will be held at a later date.

Johnson-Hughes Funeral Home in Herrin is assisting the family with the arrangements.

For those who prefer, memorials may be made to his daughter, Chandler Makay Clover and will be accepted at Johnson-Hughes Funeral Home, 201 South 13th Street, Herrin, Illinois 62948.

    We enjoyed TJ as a Copperheads baseball team player. He and our son were lefty look alikes with matched speed on the bases. :)

    He was an enjoyable young man and we were thankful for the time we had to get to know him. Our heart goes out to his family.

    Love and Prayers,
    Coach And Lisa Bastien
