Clayt was a fun loving multi talented man who made friends with all from his first hello and handshake. He was not happy until he made everyone smile and laugh. He loved any flavor of ice cream, his bets were made in banana splits. Clayt worked for Shetler Plumbing and Heating, Pigeon Lumber, and Scheurer Hospital where he retired from the maintenance department. Adding to the list of his talents was his love of auctioneering. He worked for Albrecht Auction Service and Great Lakes Auction Service with his friends Herb Albrecht and Dale Wertz. There were many laughs and adventures. He dearly loved his grandsons and attended any and every event. He especially enjoyed watching them play football and baseball. When Clayt was younger he played fast pitch softball and was widely feared for his pitching abilities, he could strike anyone out. He was also an avid skater and hockey player. But most of all he was an extremely devoted husband, father and grandfather who went above and beyond any calling especially for his wife of 54 years. If there were to be a picture in the dictionary or even Bible of a husband it would have been his with two huge gold stars.
