Clayton will be missed not only by Don ;but many, many others. He welcomed me with a smile and a twinkle in his eye when I first came out to play bridge with the Primetimers. A great man gone to heaven.

Dear Don, Meno and Clayton’s loved ones,

We were so sorry to learn that Clayton had passed away. We had some good visits at Nine Mile over the years and so enjoyed the Brunches your cottage hosted each year at Thanksgiving to raise some donations for Charity. Clayton had such a dry sense of humour and a wonderful laugh. We will raise a glass in his memory when we return to the Lake next week. Please accept our sincere condolences as you mourn his loss.

Keep all of your memories close to your hearts ad he will always be with you..Thinking of you..God Bless

Clayton’s dry sense of humour and that twinkle in his eye will be missed. He was quiet, but he picked up on everything and put his own unique perspective on it.
