    I sure loved chatting with Clayton and hearing him recite dates of family events, birthdates and other occasions. He knew them all! He was a character! Praying for the family.

    I remember going to school with Clayton in Aberdeen back in the 60’s and 70’s. He was always a character and great guy to be around. I am sure he will be missed by all who knew him and loved him. Prayers going up for the entire family.

    Met Clayton years ago at Burger Shack. He was always fun to talk with. Also spoke everytime I ran into him. Praying for Sybil and his family. He was a true friend.
