Clayton worked at the National Research Council. For over twenty years he suffered the deterioration of Parkinson’s Disease. In 2008 a stroke took his speech and paralyzed his left side. Through it all he never complained. The last word he spelled out was “JESUS” and he pointed to a plaque over his door which read “What a friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and griefs to bear.” Special thanks to the staff at Carleton Lodge for their kindness and understanding.
