Clayton was born September 9, 1924 in Koosharem, Utah to George Henry and Mary Rosetta Christensen. He was the youngest of 10 children.
After graduating from Richfield High School, he was drafted into the U.S. Army on May 31, 1943. He trained at several bases before his departure to Europe. Upon returning, he lived in Spanish Fork. There he met and married, Berniece Larsen in the Salt Lake Temple. He owned and operated "Clayton's Cleaners" for close to 20 years in addition to working at Hercules Powder in Salt Lake City and Geneva Steel. It was in Spanish Fork they raised their five children.
Clayton was a prominent figure in Spanish Fork and at the Spanish Fork Senior Citizens Center. He loved to be with his Senior friends going on trips to Mesquite and Wendover and on many of the tours.
He loved time spent with his children and grandchildren. Family times were the best for him. His hobbies were gardening, traveling, shopping, and going out to lunch. His favorite color was purple.
Clayton is survived by his children, Jerolyn (Roy) Beers, of Cedar Hills; Jeanine (Jack) Stickney, of Tremonton; Jeffrey Brown, of Spanish Fork; 15 grandchildren, 35 great grandchildren, and 1 great great grandchild. He was preceded in death by his wife, Berniece; sons, Duane and David; and a great granddaughter.
