Clifford “Junie” Caton

79, passed away on December 25, 2013 at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, WV surrounded by his loving family.

Junie Caton retired from Pittsburgh Plate Glass (PPG) after more than 30 years of service in the shipping department. In retirement, he found great pleasure in working in his large vegetable garden and tending to many dogs that found their way to his home. His greatest joy, however, was his family and retirement provided much time to spend with his children and grandchildren. A man of great strength, both in physical stature and character, Junie Caton lived a life built on the principles of honesty, hard work and loyalty to family. He was loved and respected by all who knew him.
