Classic example of don’t judge a book by its cover. I was very blessed to have the conversations I’ve had with him. I still remember our first conversation like it was yesterday. I’m not sure if I called myself a “Idiot or something like it”, his response will never be forgotten. He would sometimes give me a little jab about Ohio State beating my Hurricanes for the National Championship. He loved his Buckeyes as I love my Hurricanes. To Lisa and all of his children, family and friends, he will truly be missed.

My sincere condolences go out to the family, friends and members of the Marco Island Police Department. My prayers to the Marco Island Fire Department and medical personnel involved.
I met Clayton on several occasions. We shared stories of our police experiences. Clayton struck me as a kind, caring and dedicated law enforcement officer. He spoke of his family with love in his heart.
He left this world too soon, but a better place. May you Rest In Peace. I believe he will be an angel watching over all of you.

Laurie and I were shocked and saddened to hear of Clayton's passing. We worked together at STPD for close to 20 years, and Clayton was always viewed as a "go to guy" by his supervisors and peers. He was one of the most tactically sound officer's I knew, and he had the ability to communicate with people no matter what the situation. Everyone has a "Clayton story". Safe to say, he provided more laughter and comedy to his co-workers than he ever knew...but could switch it off and be the ultimate team player and handle the most serious situations, which is how he will always be remembered.
To Lisa and the family, God bless and know you are all in our hearts and prayers...God speed Clay..and job well done...
