Clayton had a zeal for life as he always had a way of making people laugh with his candid sense of humor while coming up with his own phrases that would cause one to smile and laugh.  Enjoying life for Clayton included many things which        included a good game of cards...Dad was his   favorite, as well as being an avid bowler he participated in many leagues across the city.  While bowling in state tournaments and leagues Clayton won many awards and trophies.  He became known to many by his bowling name that was given to him “88” the Go-Getter.” 
Clayton Wadlington departed this life on Friday, May 25, 2012 at the age of eight-five years, two months and two days.  Although his voice we can no longer hear and his smile we can no longer see, his memory will last a life time.  He was
