On May 17, 1951 a son was born Cleveland Haddicks to Grace Cooley and Clarence Haddicks Sr. Cleveland was born in Los Angeles, California and graduated from Centennial Senior High School in 1969. He was the sixth child and the youngest boy.
As a young man he formed a ban in which he was the lead singer while working a full time job. They played a few venues but soon found it didn’t help in paying the bill so the ban was dissolved. While living in Los Angeles Cleveland worked for the City of Los Angeles it was here in Los Angeles that he met Gwendolyn Joyce Alexander. It was not long before they were inseparable and later united in holy matrimony. The two of them moved to her home town of Banning, California where he resided until his death. He was employed in many different occupations while living in Banning. At times Cleveland would work three jobs at the same time such as: the Palm Springs Airport, part-time as a janitor, and part-time doing a paper route. He was employed at Lowes, and at the end of his life he was employed worked for Sportsman Liquor Store.
Cleveland was a devote father who loved his three sons T-Shane, Cleveland Jr. and Jason. He always wanted to provide them with the best that he possibly could, dirt bikes and other toys they desired.
