Clayton could fix anything! He enjoyed his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and was always glad to see them. His candy dish was always full! He will be greatly missed by his entire family.

The family would also like to extend their deep thanks to the many caregivers whose efforts meant so much to us. They include everyone at Living Tree Estates in Greenville, the staff at St. Joseph Residence in New London, and everyone at Theda Care. Clayton could have been in no better hands, and we will always remember your kindness to our family.
