Longtime outdoors journalist and former Clarion Ledger outdoors writer Bobby Cleveland died Thursday from injuries suffered in an automobile accident.

Cleveland, the brother of former Clarion Ledger sportswriter and Hall of Fame sportswriter Rick Cleveland, who is now with Mississippi Today, most recently worked as the Pearl River Valley Water Supply District spokesman for the past 10 years.

Cleveland was leaving North Shore Park in Rankin County Thursday morning after having helped set up for a concert series when the accident took place. He was 67 years old.

Outdoors was Cleveland’s passion. He shared stories with Mississippi for nearly three decades through the Clarion Ledger and later as a TV personality and an online columnist.

Rick said the two were as close as two brothers could be.

“We worked together. We played together. We cooked together and laughed a lot together,” Rick said. “I tried to do all of that outdoors stuff that he did. I tried everything one time, whether it was deer hunting or rabbit hunting, squirrel hunting. All of it. I was an OK fisherman but I was pretty terrible at the rest of it.”
