Clayton was employed on a farm at Pincher Creek, AB, several farms in Simmie and Gull Lake areas, and worked on the oil rigs several winters. He went on to have a mixed farming operation in the Simmie area. Clayton's love of cattle and horses played a major role in his farming career and he could often be found at cattle or horse sales, where his favorite sayings included "Better give it one more bid" and "A few more wouldn't hurt". Clayton and Lillie retired into Swift Current in 2006, but he continued to help out at the farm until 2018. Clayton had many interests, including curling, hockey, baseball, chariot racing, hunting, and dancing. Clayton and Lillie loved attending dances and would dance anywhere music played, in any kitchen, living room or open-area. Clayton was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend. He enjoyed visiting with anyone, anywhere, at any time. He was irresistible to the grandchildren; they all loved sitting on grandpa's knee, tagging along with him on the farm, getting a yodelling lesson, or a horseback riding lesson. Clayton was hard-working, honest, and a gentle soul; Always helping out anyone who needed a hand. He will be dearly missed, but always in our hearts.
