Rest Peacefully

So saddened to hear of Clayton’s passing. I always enjoyed his friendship as a coworker. He was a true gentle soul. Rest peacefully, my friend.

Clayton was an awesome shooter!

I met Clayton at Northern Ky Straight Shooters. He shot trap with my husband, Ray, and me. He was a much better shooter than us! You could always count on Clayton to shoot on the men’s top team. Ray and Clayton can shoot trap together in heaven now! My prayers to Linda, Nicole and his entire family. – Evelyn Richard

Clayton was such a great guy!

I enjoyed not just working with Clayton, but also our great conversations we would have as I walked through the plant. He loved his family, especially his Grandchildren. He will be missed very much, not just as a co-worker, but as a family man. I was great to know you Clayton! Rest in Peach sir!

Heaven has gained another set of great wing,

Clayton is such a good man! Thank you for being such a great papaw to our grandchildren! You will be deeply missed by all. Rest In Peace.
