Clay was not only a great man, but an excellent father and grandfather to many. He will never be forgotten. He was always willing to give support to whomever needed it at the time. He gave his life to the United States Navy, and then to children when in need. I am proud to have known Clay and may he always be remembered.

Thank you for your service!
