Our sympathy to you and your family, Maureen. I met Clayton when we were 8th graders in Mr. Klein's class. I remember him as always being very kind.

I never had the pleasure of meeting "Red", but I am so grateful for the kindness he always gave to my mom (Gerry Perius). He always went above and beyond to help her. My deepest sympathy to you all.

Maureen, you have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your husband, Clayton. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Maureen, Cody & Monte,
I am saddened to read of Red's passing and sorry for your loss. I got to go Sharptail hunting many years ago with Red and Dennis Pfeifer. Let me tell you, I never laughed so hard ever than that day. The one liners were epic. Red would do anything to help a person out. He will be missed.
