Hello Cindy,

I knew Clay when I worked at Purdue from 2004-2009. I am sorry to hear of his passing. I live in Miami now, and this news just reached me today. My thoughts are with you during this sorrowful time. What I will always remember about Clay is his willingness to talk sports with me... Football mainly, some basketball and occasionally hockey, my favorite and one that he was learning to appreciate with HDTV :). He spoke of you often and always with a smile on his face. Clay was a wonderful person and also willing to help me with my computer (usually printing) issues. I hope the memories that you and Clay made, and those that others have shared with you, will comfort you during this time of sadness.

I was so sorry to read about ""Clay"" . We were both north-enders and I went to Longlois and Sunnyside but was a couple years behind him. He used to ride by my house on his motorcycle and stop and talk with me and my mom.

I haven&t talked to him in years but wanted his family to know that we thought of him fondly. He was always nice and well behaved and had a good heart.

I was very sorry to read of his passing.

Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

I was so sorry to hear about Clay. I worked in the Agronomy Dept. went he first started there. We had somefunny and interesting conversations. He always had a good attitude when you had a problem that need solving and I had many. I always tried to see him when I would come to Purdue to have lunch with Connie, Sandy, and Karen. When I retired my picture was the only one in the Exponent retiring at that time so he gave me the name of ""big head"" because it looked like it was taking up more than the normal amount of room in the column. I didn&t get to see him on Spring Fling day and sorry for that.

You take care and know that you are in my prayers.

Although Clay and I lost touch after our divorce, I want you to know that everyone in my family always thought warmly of Clay. As with any marriage we had our good times and bad, but we were very young and we both knew there were better people for each of us in the world.

It was good to hear that he still enjoyed fishing and hunting. We did quite a bit of fishing when we were married. He would get a kick out of that fact that I&m now in the process of taking up hunting.

And I&ll never forget meeting him for golf every Saturday and Sunday to play the last nine holes after he and the guys played all day. I could barely make it through nine holes and he was still ready to play after 36.

The Lord took him way too soon. He will certainly be missed.

With deepest sympathies,

I am saddened to hear about Clay&s passing. He was a joy to work with the short time I was at Purdue in Agronomy. Clay was always delightful to converse with. I enjoyed when he would come in and we were able to talk for a few minutes.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Daphne and I are deeply saddened to hear of Clay&s passing. It was an honor and privilege to have known Clay - not only as a co-worker, but as a true friend. I can&t begin to describe how much I thoroughly enjoyed working with Clay and sharing life together as friends. He was a great teacher and I&ll never forget the many memories of having great times with him at work, catching breakfast and lunch together, and hearing stories of his hunting adventures. We will miss him so much. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Clay was a dear colleague and one that we all had a special place in our heart&s for because of his extreme dedication to the department, his friendliness and his health struggles. I think we all felt a bit vested in Clay?s life and pulled for (and prayed for) his complete recovery. Our prayers go to Cindy and all his family members. Clay will be missed by us all.

I don&t normally send ""electronic"" condolences -- especially when I don&t really know the family. But I saw Clay&s obituary and just wanted to pass along the fact that I have fond memories of him when we were kids out in the north end of Lafayette. He was in the class ahead of mine. My condolences on your loss...

I am so sorry to hear of Clay&s passing. I spent many a great day fishing with him in the mid-80&s when we worked together at PUCC. Lot&s of ""...grubbin& for gills"" and tracking smallies on various rivers, creeks, and ponds in the area. He helped reinforce my love of nature and taught me several things.

Clay was a great guy and will be missed.
