In Remembrance of Clayton Dillard

1967 - 2019

Clayton was born in 1967 in Deming, NM and raised in Globe, AZ. As a child he loved to escape into the stunning Pinal Mountains for hunting and exploring. 

An extremely hard worker, he was took pride in everything he did. He was a great lover of music and believed it to be healing and therapeutic. 

A stand up, old-fashioned man, Clayton was often misunderstood. He believed a man's handshake was his word. He wanted to make everyone he loved happy, even at the expense of his own happiness. Clayton was a man who would give you the shirt off his back. The kind of man who'd force his jacket on a homeless man because it was freezing. The kind of man who would spend his last dime feeding stray cats and kittens.

Because of all of these things and so much more, Clayton was extremely loved. Did he not know? Did he know but had grown tired? It's not our time to know, he took those answers with him.

Clayton Dillard was found February 2019 in Jarrell, TX. Our lives forever changed and Clayton forever missed. 

"I'll see you on the other side, brotha!"

Carry on my wayward son
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more
