Professionally, Cleavant was a TV Actor who was best known for his role as Rembrandt Brown in the American sci-fi TV series "Sliders".

When he was not on the job as a TV Actor, Cleavant was known for his love of cooking fried foods and he would spend minutes most Thursdays engrossed in it. Mr. Derricks (the deceased) also spent hours visiting with his closest cousin most Sundays when he was able to spare a small number of minutes. Ever since he was a rambunctious little boy in Knoxville, many remember Cleavant as a caring person with fantastic puppet shows that impressed everyone. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a tax free donation to the Alzheimer's Research Fund in Cleavant's his memory.
