We were not able to be with you at the Celebration of Life. However we share your grief and reach out to you and the family. We cannot believe that Clayton will not be coming to our Kemper Mtn Road cabin during hunting season. He was like the son we would have loved to have. His love of wildlife, enthusiasm for sport, and willingness to help others will always be remembered. A life full of opportunities has been taken too soon. This world has lost a good kid. We wish you strength during this time. May the love and support of friends and family comfort you.
Butch, we'll return in June and hope to see you then. God bless you and the family.
My condolence's to Butch, Brenda, Karlie, Ace, and extended family. My heart goes out to you all for your loss. Clayton was a good kid, that laughed and joked with my children, and was often thought of.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you - I have so many wonderful memories of Clay. He was always full of mischief and always had a smile on his face. He was an incredible kid and I know he’s watching over all of you. Love to all - Sue
My love and hugs for you Butch and your family
So truly sorry for the pain you are feeling
May God comfort you now and always
I know dad (Ron Butler) is with your son
I am so sorry for your loss!!! My thoughts and prayers are with you all!!! Love always Jan
My sincere condolences to you and your family. I am so sorry to hear of your loss.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Butch and family,
There are no words to express our feeling of sorrow. I’ve known Clayton since he was born and he was always a special friend. I have personally had many experiences with Clayton alone and I can tell you he was an incredible person. Although he liked some mischief, he always did the right thing. I couldn’t even get him to have a beer with me at the bar because he didn’t want to lie to the bartender earlier this year. He was one of the best hunter/outdoorsmens we’ve known. The only thing that brings a smile to my face is knowing that he is chasing bucks and gobblers with his Grandpa Frank in heaven. I think about the special place God has for country boys, like your tattoo stated. I love you Clayton and will miss you. Save a few bucks for me in heaven.
Todd Zacchera and family.
Butch my friend
There are no words
I have nothing
Only love and support
My prayers to you and Clay
So very sorry for your loss. What a wonderful ulogy to read would’ve loved to have met him I pray peace beyond all understanding during this difficult time
I never thought I would be writing this to my little cousin and I’m definitely broken to see you gone. I wish I would have gotten to see the man you have turned into. I know your in a better place and getting to hang with Mom.
Love you Clayton,
My deepest condolences to Clayton’s family and friends. I fondly recall memories of Clayton in 5th grade when I subbed in his class for several months. He was quiet, kind, and always polite, and possessed a fun and mischievous nature. My heart breaks for your tremendous loss. Praying for God’s comfort and peace.♥️
We knew Clay from his working with Narvin. We always had chocolate milk and fruit roll ups for him. I know Narvin was looking forward to being his mentor in the plumbing and electric business. He related to us how smart, eager and quick to learn he was. So sorry that such a bright light was extinguished before it had a chance to really shine. Always had a smile and a witty response. Full of such energy. We wish there was something to ease the pain. May he be with God in a better place
Our sincere condolences and prayers for the family for comfort on the loss of your loved one.
Never forget the great time I had with Clayton in Texas killing hogs
Butch and family -- We loved Clayton. I think back to how close the boys were when they were young and all the wonderful times we had. He was always full of fun and ready to build a fort, go fishing, jump in the water, play army, or enjoy a turkey sandwich -- and so on! He was genuine and true, and with Clayton you always knew where you stood. I also have so many memories of him at JCS -- from kindergarten on. Again, he was honest and thoughtful, a good boy who wanted to succeed. He loved his family and his friends and was greatly loved by all. There are no words to heal your pain -- I know -- but it's important for you to know that we grieve with you. Love -- Jo, Jim, Callan and Daniel Little
As a family we are so sorry for the loss of this young man. If any of you need anything please let us know. Your family is in our heart and prayers.
The Leas Family
It is with great sadness to hear of this tragedy and I hold you Butch, Mae, Diane and all the family in my heart and in my prayers. My love to you all.
Our deepest sympathies , words are not enough to express the sorrow we feel. You are in our thoghts and prayers
My deep and sincere condolences to Clayton's family. I had the privilege to know Clay from the time he was a young boy. He was always kind and ready to help. I loved his sense of humor and great attitude. Couldn't get mad at him because of that beautiful smile he had. I'd always call him when hunting season started and beg him to "leave some deer for us guys from CT"! Best young hunter I ever met. During holiday party's he would always make sure I got one of his Gramma's pies, with a big smile. My trips to Stamford will never be the same, I hope through the years the great memories I have of Clay will heal part of my broken heart.

We’ll always love you Clay. Rest easy buddy and see you soon. Praying for the Collins family and anyone else who was affected by this tragedy. #GiddyUp brother <3
I remember the very first time I met Clayton, he was with Chris, and he walked right up to me introduced himself shook my hand and then hugged me, he told me we’d have fun that night. He always checked in with me to see how I was doing because he hadn’t seen me in a while,
