Clayton was very honorable and honest community representative. Clayton's wife Marion was a long term volunteer at South Shore Hospital. Clayton served as a longtime board member South Shore Hospital. South Shore Hospital was always in Clayton's thoughts, he believed it was such a great place for the community to have access to healthcare and he was proud of the nobility of the hospital to never turn away care due to the inability to pay. Clayton was one of the longest living diabetics in the community and managed his diabetes exceptionally well, living to be 89 years of age.

Clayton was a Weymouth guy he was born and bred and lived his whole life in Weymouth. He was very pleased to serve on the hospital board and participate in the growth of the hospitals facilities and programming knowing that the hospital could provide comfort to the residents in the community. He would be happy to see his gift has helped so many in the community and will continue to grow and support South Shore Health future while leaving a lasting Legacy for future generations.
